What's in the news?

All Christmas preparations are happening, which always makes the final couple of weeks of the Autumn Term a vey busy time in school. Please try to support as many of the events that are happening in and out of school.

It would be lovely to see parents and children from school coming along to see me in the pantomime 'Cinderella' in January at the Civic Hall in Ellesmere Port. I will be playing the role of Buttons and have  the task of looking after Cinderella and making sure the audience gets thoroughly involved in each performance. Check for the letter that as sent home today.

What has happened in school this week:

We welcomed Tia to Potter Class this week. She has been made to feel most welcome by all the children in her class.

Potter Class had an absolutely fabulous day on Wednesday visiting Imagine That in Liverpool. They had a full day exploring a range of scientific activities and experiments which they thoroughly immersed themselves in. Mrs McGrath and Mrs Atkin were exceptionally proud of all the children.

It was lovely welcoming back Imran Kotwal on Wednesday this week, as he worked with children in Year 2, Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6. With Imran, the children explored special texts, artefacts and stories; learnt about Hajj and the pilgrimage to Mecca and what the Prophet Muhammed said about charity. Imran was very complimentary of all the children and their engagement in the sessions.

Year 3 had an amazing trip on Thursday at 'The Iron Age Experience'. They took part in a range of activities including getting mucky (their favourite)! They learnt how to use a bow and arrow, studied artefacts, got to investigate inside a real roundhouse, made clay pots, used willow to weave and took part in an archaeological dig finding real artefacts. What a brilliant day and many thanks to the parents who supported the children in Dahl Class.

Thursday afternoon saw three of our RE ambassadors decorating our Nutcracker themed Christmas Tree. The tree will be one of a number of trees forming part of the Christmas Tree Festival at Frodsham Methodist Church. If you find time try and get along too all the trees in their true glory.

Our PTA Christmas Disco took place on Thursday evening and saw 116 children dance the evening away! Huge thank you to DJs Dylan and James for spinning the discs and keeping all the children dancing. Many thanks also to those parents who helped at the event, thus ensuring it went off without a hitch.

Carroll Class took part in the annual 'Christmas Journey' experience at Main Street Church on Friday morning. Accompanies by Mrs Brook, Mrs Deegan and Miss Cragg the children journeyed through the Christmas story which was told to them through dramatization. This is always a lovely experience for the children in Year 2 and this year was no exception. We send our thanks to Main Street Church.

The talents of the children in Shakespeare Class were on display on Friday afternoon as the whole school watched their Talent Show. A range of talents were on display including gymnastics, a volleyball demonstration, singing and a magic act. Well done to all those children who took part. The winning act was a group of actors performing a comedy piece complete with singing and dancing.

There was then a quick turn around for members of the choir to go to sing for the opening of Frodsham Christmas Tree Festival. Many thanks to the many adults who came to suppport us. 

Thank you for supporting Elf Day today in aid of the Alzhiemer's Society - an event organised by the school council. School looked amazingly festive - with many a mischievous elf spotted here and there! By the end of the day we had raised £280. 

   

What has made me smile this week:

As we count down to that very special time of the year, all the younger children in school have begun rehearse for 'Stable by Starlight'.

Ian Devereux-Roberts (IDevereux-Roberts) on: The Buzz

What's in the news?

It was lovely to hear the news that Beci Palfreyman (Manger of Link Club) gave birth to beautiful daughter Amelia at the end of November. We send al our love  and best wishes to Beci and her partner.

Following the PTA meeting on Monday 19th November, I am pleased to confirm that Mrs Dean - mum of Ashton and Aysha - will be taking on the role of Chair of the PTA. Please offer as much support as you possibly can to the committee. The Christmas Fair will be soon upon us and the more parents who can help in ensuring the event is a great success would be very much appreciated.

I have always been very touched by the support the Devereux-Roberts family has received from the children here at school and from staff, governors and parents alike. This has never been more evident than in the last two weeks. Mrs Devereux-Roberts and I spent the week before last in hospital with Meg who became ill critically very quickly and we had to have difficult conversations about our wishes for Meg if her condition deteriorated significantly. Thank goodness Meg was having not of it and within a matter of 48 hours was making herself known to the medical staff and is now recovering very well indeed. Whilst dealing with these family challenges, I knew all would be well at school and the messages, prayers and thoughts my wife and I received were just amazing so thank you. 

What has happened in school this week:

They say a week is a long time in politics but that phrase can certainly be said of this week in school. Following confirmation on Monday morning that a Section 8 inspection of school would occur the following day, the staff responded magnificently. As a Section 8 inspection, the focus was to be on the leadership and management of the school and how school had responded to its 2014 inspection findings. Mr Pugh, HMI, spent a full day thoroughly scrutinising school and spent time observing teaching; talking to a group of children; meeting with governors and talking to parents at the start of the school day. We now await a letter detailing Mr Pugh's findings which will be shared with parents once it has been received by school. I thank the staff for their professionalism; the children who were interviewed for their confidence; governors for their astuteness and for parents who took time to complete the Parent View online questionnaire. I have the honour and privilege of working with a talented team of individuals who work tirelessly for the children of Manor House.

Shakespeare Class completed their course of swimming lessons this week. Each will receive a certificate acknowledging their individual achievements. As a school will be reporting the percentage of children who reached the National Curriculum requirement for swimming. Well done Shakespeare Class.

Wednesday afternoon saw Tolkien Class working with our community librarian to make Victorian biscuits. The jury was out on the success of this baking workshop! 

Thursday saw Milne Class visiting Santa's Grotto in Delamere Forest and bringing back our school Christmas Tree. A lovely day was had by all the children and I have it on good authority that they are all on Santa's good list.

Thursday also saw Tolkien Class out of school and visiting Weaver Hall to develop their knowledge of the Victorians. Undertaking a range of hands-on experiences, the children had a great day and Mrs Pye and Miss Hall said the children were wonderful ambassadors.

Thursday evening saw our two Streetdance Crews participating in the FAVSP Streetdance Festival at Helsby High School. Great performances by both crews and congratulations to Isla and Bella who were declared our school's star dancers.

Thursday evening also saw the culmination of the 'Walk my Journey' project that Shakespeare Class have been part of this term. A very powerful and emotive evening was witnessed by many of the people attending this presentation in Chester. Huge congratulations to Shakespeare Class for committing themselves to work alongside children from a number of other schools and producing a superb piece of theatre. 

What has made me smile this week:

The confidence of the children chosen to chat to the HMI inspecting school on Tuesday. They readily answered his questions and were all wonderful ambassadors for the school.

The staff reported back that the children thoroughly enjoyed the workshops. We thank Mr Pitigala - dad of Marcus and Christopher - for organising our involvement in MoneySense.

One again the Frodsham Festival was a great success. Huge thank you to the children who participated in the various events; to parents who supported the various events and to the staff who worked tirelessly to make the different events school participated in a success.

We send our congratulations to the parents of Samuel B (Milne Class) on the safe arrival yesterday of baby Eliza. Samuel and his younger brother George will no doubt be super older brothers to Eliza. Again many congratulations Mr and Mrs Bennett from all of us at Manor House.

What has happened in school this week?

Miss Bedford and I had the pleasure of re-enacting 'Dragons Den' on Thursday this week, as we judges whether this year's entrepreneur projects would receive a start up grant from school. Once again we were mightily impressed by the confidence showed by all members of Tolkien Class as they presented their ideas for a forthcoming 'Victorian Christmas Fair'. New ideas were presented which was great to see and we are convinced that all of the groups will successfully make a profit. Keep an eye out for events that are being planned to support the entrepreneurial work of Tolkien Class and hopefully as many families as possible will be able to attend the 'Year 6 Victorian Christmas Fair' on the afternoon of the 20th December 2018.

As the country prepares to commemorate the centenary of the end of World War One, we were presented with a plaque by Mr Geoff Abnett today in our Celebration Assembly to mark this very important anniversary. Using some of the poppies from the poppy cascade that was displayed at the medical centre, a plaque has been presented to al the schools in Frodsham. Some of our school families will remember making the felt poppies that formed part of the poppy cascade back in 2016. We will be displaying our plaque in the entrance area to school.
