Keep up to date with all that we have going on here at Manor Hill. The pupils and staff enjoy documenting learning and experiences with photographs. This is where you can see for yourself just how fun learning at Manor Hill can be!
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
