Ancient Greek Workshop tomorrow (25.6.19)


We are very lucky to be having Portals to the Past come in and deliver an Ancient Greek Workshop for the day tomorrow. It is in school time as normal. Children are welcome to wear a costume if they would like to, as we know some have costumes left from our Greek Night and therefore children are excited to wear these again. Please do not worry to make/buy a costume if you do not already have one, costumes are very much optional!


Please wear school uniform if you do not have a costume.


Many thanks,

Miss Plume

We will be learning a spelling rule each week and then sending home a list of spellings to practise. We will then have a test on these words the next week. Spelling lists will come home every Thursday. Have a look at today's rule...


Kind regards,

Miss Plume

No spellings for 8.7.19

Flu immunisations

This Thursday (14th November) Year 3 will be having their flu immunisations.  We will talk to them about this in Class but if there are any problems or concerns please let a member of staff know.

Forest school and PE kits

Please can all children bring in their Forest School clothes with wellies and PE kits every week.  We have Forest school on a Tuesday afternoon.  Mrs Millin has asked that they must have wellies as the ground is quite wet and muddy now the weather has changed.  PE is on a Friday afternoon. 

Without the correct clothing, children may have to miss out on these important and beneficial activities.  


In addition to the homework books, the children will also be asked to learn their times tables and a set of spellings for the week.  We will teach the spelling rule the same week to help them.

Outdoor Classroom Day


On Thursday 1st November, Manor School will be taking part in a outdoor classroom learning day.  This will involve a number of different activities where the children will get to explore and learn from what is around them.  Please ensure your child is wearing warm and dry clothes.  Wellies, a waterproof coat and old clothes that you don't mind getting dirty would be preferable.  



Miss Plume
