What's in the news?

Our visitors from Red Roses School had a very busy weekend with their host families, with some of them visiting a beach for the very first time. A visit to Chirk Castle also took place which was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone.

Learning a musical instrument at Manor House Primary School

BOOK A TASTER COURSE OF LESSONS FOR SEPTEMBER!

If your child is interested in trying a course of instrumental lessons at school, please visit www.musicforlife.org.uk/apply-now where you will find lots of information and be able to book a "taster" course online ready to start in September. Instrument lessons at Manor House Primary School are provided by Music for Life - a not-for-profit music education service working in partnership with 130 schools to teach around 4,500 pupils every week across Cheshire, Wirral and North Staffordshire. To discover more about the work of Music for Life, please visit:

WEBSITE:      musicforlife.org.uk FACEBOOK:  facebook.com/Musicforlife1234 TWITTER:      twitter.com/MusicforLifeSCH VIDEOS:        musicforlife.org.uk/videos

Music for Life can accommodate almost any child who books a course before the summer because it designs a new timetable from scratch every year to do so. After that, additional places may be available during the year but they tend to be more limited. It is important to note that anyone wishing to try a course of lessons in September needs to book before the end of this term (certainly before August) to be sure of a place when school reopens. 

The cost of lessons can be spread over 12 months if required to help make things much more affordable, typically around £25 per month or less for most instruments for beginners (piano around £37 per month) and payment can be made by almost any debit, credit or pre-paid card. Full details about costs are available on the Music for Life website and can be viewed and confirmed before booking. 

Involvement in music offers young people something very special, not only introducing children to a confidence boosting, life enhancing interest, but also something which study after study has shown leads to improved achievement across the curriculum. 130 schools, together with thousands of parents, young people, professional musicians and music teachers would tell you they feel Music for Life offers something special, too! Music for Life exists to engage children long term in high quality music making and to nurture and develop an interest we know many will have for life.

We are proud to have had the opportunity to work with some amazing young people over the last 23 years and hope that your child may join us soon!

Best wishes

In preparation for their residential to London next week, Year 6 sported their 'Leavers Hoodies' in school this week. Bright colour so that we can spot them!

Mrs Anstice will be attending he Cheshire School Awards next Tuesday with pupil represetnatives to see whether we will be the winning school in the Community Award category. We'll let you know how we get on.

What has happened in school this week?

Our visors have had a very busy week as you can see from the photographs below - visit to Helsby High School; visit to the historic city of Chester; attendance at the Epic Steps Conferences with Year 6; sightseeing tour of our capital city and a visit to Chester Zoo. A very full on week but a truly magical one though.

 

Following their French immersion course in France before half term, Miss Hall and Mrs Pye shared their learning with Year 6 through the medium of food tasting. As you can tell from the photographs, some of the foods tasted went down well and some obviously didn't. 

Along with pupils from other local schools, Year 6 took part in the Epic Steps Conference at Sci-Tech Daresbury. Debating and undertaking science investigations dominated their day there. The children certainly had a great day. 

 

Potter Class enjoyed a visit to Chester Zoo on Thursday - exploring all the areas as well as undertaking workshops. Here they are captured from above as they walked around the zoo. They had a great day and all returned to school full of smiles and lots of information to share.

Congratulations to everyone in Year 4 who ensured their Alzheimer's Cupcake Sale was a great success on Thursday afternoon. With the help of Miss Fiddler, Mrs Allen, Mrs Williamson and the many donations that came in they raised the wonderful total of £139.50 for the Alzheimer's Society.

What has made me smile this week?

Being in the company of our visitors from Red Roses School this week has brought many a smile to my face. It has been a real pleasure and privilege to have them as part of our school family. We certainly hope our partnership will go from strength to strength.

Mrs Ritu Bedi (Principal), Mr Surya Bedi (Technical Advisor); Ms Divya Singha (Pupil), Ms Simvan Dhingra (Pupil), Master Kushagra Khavger (Pupil) and Ms Abhilasha Shukla (Pupil) arrived smiling - if a little tired after their journey from India via Oman.

We hosted a welcome assembly for our special visitors on Friday morning which was really lovely. For the rest of the day our visitors spent time in classes hearing all about the learning that has taken place or will be taking place. Each class, with the exception of Year 3 and Year 4, presented superbly to our visitors. Our visitors have a busy weekend ahead of them spending time with their host families.  We extend a huge thank you to the Smith family, the Emsion family , the Hardy family and the Brown family for their kindness, hospitality and generosity.

What's in the news?

Congratulations to Applebees Pre-School following their recent Ofsted inspection and being graded outstanding in all areas. Such an wonderful acknowledgment of what an excellent pre-school provider we have based within school. Sending our congratulations to Mrs Pearson and her staff.

I am pleased to report that we have been shortlisted again for the 'Community Award' as part of the Cheshire Schools Awards 2018. Mrs Anstice will be attending the awards ceremony with a group of children on Tuesday 19th June in Chester. Once again this nomination  acknowledges the success of school within a local, national and international context.

Well done to all children from Reception to Year 6 who performed at the Community Centre last Sunday as part of the Broadway Bound group. 20 of which attend our Monday after school club, others attend on a Friday night and our school also hosts the Senior Class. Many were soloists including Lucy and Edith as Matilda and Miss Honey, Lois, Lola and Iona as 2 Annies and Miss Hannigan, Isabella as Sandy, Robyn as Anastasia, Bethany, Maddie and Iona as Tracies, Erin as Amber, Maddie as Dorothy as well as other children singing a solo in part of a song. Mrs Anstice was particularly proud of everyone's behaviour as the last few rehearsals were rather technical and on the night it was very hot backstage. Well done to Kayleigh Ann Strong who only founded the Theatre School last October which continues to grow.

  

 What has happened in school this week?

Year 5 participated in an Epic Steps visit on Wednesday this week, along with children from neighbouring schools. As part of their work they thought about their values, inventions and inspirational people.

Friday brought to a close all the hardwork Tolkien Class have been doing as they have prepared for their KS2 Assessment Tests. We wish them all the luck in the world for next week and have every confidence they will give of their best in all assessment tests. A huge thank you is extended to staff who have supported our Year 6s and to the parents of our Year 6s who have been supporting their son or daughter so incredibly well also.
