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!
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!

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 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 3 had a wonderful time interrogating Gangsta Granny after their classroom became a crime scene littered with cabbage soup and Murray mints! This has led to some wonderful writing and descriptions of Granny herself.
Year 1 and 2 hit the beach!
Year 1 and 2 had a rather brilliant end to their week with a beach day. This helped to inspire their writing about ‘The Snorgh and the Sailor’. They enjoyed kite flying, boat racing, sandcastle building and definitely ice cream eating! The day was rounded off with a traditional Punch and Judy Show, what fun!
Year 4 brought their Misty Mountain Sierra topic to life by visiting an indoor climbing center. All of the pupils participated in learning a new skill and learned how to be safety conscious. A great time was had by all.
Survival skills at Manor Hill
Year 1 and 2 took to the great outdoors at Manor Hill with survival expert Mr Fox. They learned how build dens, safely start fires and to identify animals and plants. Impressive skills from all involved, especially the marshmallow toasting!
