2018-19

Climbing Kilimanjaro!

In aid of Red Nose Day we donned our trainers and climbed our school staircase 655 times to equal the height of Mount Kilimanjaro. With everyone taking a turn this was a real achievement and we were proud to raise £191.02 for such a worthwhile charity.

Save the Planet!

We are committed to reducing our plastic waste as much as we can and have many recycling schemes going on at school, which is why when we were offered an assembly on the subject from Katie from Stafford Borough Council and Tracey from the SWAPP Litter group we said yes! Watch this space for more news on how we are helping to reduce waste in our local area.

 

Pancake Day

We celebrated Shrove Tuesday in style by tucking in to some delicious pancakes!

 

Friendship Disco 

We had such a great time at our disco! We celebrated having a school full of wonderful friends to play with and care about.

 

Year 3-4 welcome a Roman Soldier

What a wonderful experience it was to have Gaius the Roman in our school for a whole day. The pupils in Year 3 and 4 learned all about the lived experience of a Roman. In the afternoon they put their knowledge to good use in a real battle in the hall with lots of instructions and orders to follow.

Birches Valley Trip

Year 2 had a super time at Birches Valley learning all about a forest habitat. They made clay hedgehogs with natural materials  and experimented with casting animal footprints, they even squeezed in a game of hide and seek!

NSPCC Number Day

We celebrated Number Day with a dressing up and mega maths quiz event. We raised £71.00 for this super charity and had fun doing so!

 

Year 3 and 4 Crime Scene

What a shock Year 3 and 4 had during their first week back to find a criminal investigation in their classroom! Clues included purple slippers and murray mint wrappers left at the scene. They guessed that Gangsta Granny was to blame and they were right!

 

Type 1 Diabetes Superheroes

We had an incredible day on 14th November. We all dressed up and held a bake sale to raise money for JDRF on World Diabetes Day. We raised over £200 pounds!

Remembrance Day

Thank you to our Head Girl and Boy for taking part in the Stone Remembrance Day Parade. They represented our school brilliantly by paying their respects and laying a wreath on behalf of us all.

Locksmiths House

Back in time to 1900s Willenhall, the Year 2 class had a great experience learning all out the way of life back then and how a family house and business worked. I think it is safe to say that they all prefer their modern day comforts!

Cadbury World

Year 2 started their topic, Nutritious and Delicious  with a fantastic visit to Cadbury World. Here they learned all about the journey from bean to bar and sampled some delicious treats too.

2017-18

 

Stone Carnival 

Once again Manor Hill created a fabulous float to join the Stone Carnival Parade. This year our theme was Recycled Rainforest and over 7 weeks, teachers, parents and pupil worked together in a craft club to create all that we needed. It really was a team effort and we hope you agree the results were fantastic! Well done and thank you to all!

 

 

Royal Wedding 

We all enjoyed a fantastic royal spread to celebrate the marriage of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, it was lovely to celebrate this important event together.

 

 

Community Garden

Year 2 and 3 have worked their socks off to learn all about plants in science and to design a sensory garden by researching, selecting and purchasing plants. They made their visions into reality with the kind help and generosity of their parents and have created a fabulous garden plot on the field.  This project has really captured their imaginations and we cannot wait to see what they grow next!

 

We love our Mums!

We showed our families just how much we appreciate our mums by holding a special assembly to celebrate all that they do for us.

 

Easter Eggstravaganza

A super showcase of Easter songs, poems, stories and dances from our talented children really kicked off our Easter Week of celebrations!

The Great Manor Hill Bake Off

All of the teachers unearthed their whisks to get creative and make some delicious cakes. We raised £135.72 thanks to generous purchasing by our fantastic families. Proceeds went to the Donna Louise Trust. Well done everyone!

 

Healthy Eating Day

We had a great day learning about Healthy Eating and using pedal power on the smoothie bike to make delicious smoothies.

Chicken Run

We were so happy to welcome back Twitter, Smartie and Cutie, the chickens we hatched here a year ago. They live happily with Mrs Proudman now and had a great time exploring the hall and meeting the children again.

 

Year 4 visit the Sealife Centre

A trip to Birmingham Sealife Centre was enjoyed by Year 4. Their topic, the Blue Abyss was enhanced by the trip to see some wonderful creatures.

Wolseley Bridge Trip Year 2/3

Year 2 and 3 packed so many activities into their trip, from making scented potions, tree measuring and bird watching to relay races and garden centre shopping! Such a lot of learning and certainly a lot of fun!

 

 

World Book Day

We had a super day celebrating World Book Day together as a school. We enjoyed a parade and working with our families in a book workshop session too.  Great costumes were worn by all, here are our David Walliams characters, do you recognise them?

 

Pancake Flipping Fun

We had such fun on Tuesday 13th February, learning all about Shrove Tuesday and making, flipping and eating pancakes. In our competition we reached an incredible 19 flips in 30 seconds!

 

Year 1 visit Ford Green Hall 

Learning about the Great Fire of London was really brought to life by Samuel Pepys at Ford Green Hall. The children really impressed with their knowledge and learned lots more too.

Christmas Jumper Day

Here are our wonderful Nursery looking super in their Christmas Jumpers. We raised funds for Save the Children and enjoyed feeling festive too!

 

Angel Express

Key Stage 1 and 2 gave a tremendous performance of their play. Would the angels learn their song in time? What was the big star for and Why did the innkeepers have no room? All was revealed by our super talented cast!

 

 

Year 4 in the Mines

Heading underground at Apedale Mine was certainly a new experience for year 4 and it helped them to write some super setting descriptions too.

Year 1 Think Tank

What a super time Year 1 had learning all about Space at the Think Tank Museum. It was a great end to their Moon Zoom Project and we loved their assembly to tell us all about it too.

Olympian Visit

We were delighted to welcome Laura Samuels, Silver Medal winner to our school. The children had great fun being put through their paces for the sponsored event.
