What's in the news?

'If you read just one book a day to your child, they will have read 1825 books by their 5th birthday. Every Day Counts. Every Book Counts.'

YOUR P.T.A NEEDS YOU


If you are on Facebook please join the Frodsham Manor House PTA group to keep up to date with news of events. There is currently a post asking for class reps. These are people who are willing to be contacted by the committee when we have events coming up, E.g a particular year group running at stall at Manor Fest!! Ideally we would like 3 class reps per class although more always welcome to share the load. Please do comment on the Facebook post if you are able to help in this way.

What has happened in school this week?

As you can see from the photographs above, we had a number of visitors in school this week. Every other year, we are visited by birds from the Welsh Birds of Prey Centre. Learning facts about the birds and having an opportunity to see them close up and handle them is always a highlight of the school year. I hope the children shared with you some of the facts they learnt.



As part of the Hoops for Health programme, run by Cheshire Phoenix Basketball squad, children in Year 5 and Year 6 had the opportunity to develop their basketball skills as well as consider the importance of healthy eating. Our American visitors make excellent ambassadors for the club but at the same time make us look very short indeed! They will be back to lead some specific coaching sessions with the children in Year 5 and Year 6. A squad of players will then be selected to take part in a tournament at the Ellesmere Port Sports Village during the interval of a forthcoming Cheshire Phoenix home game.

Tolkien Class was the first class to share their learning with the rest of the school and their parents at a special assembly on Wednesday. We were treated to samples of literacy work, science work and history work. Certainly a busy start for the children in Tolkien Class and it was really wonderful hearing all their learning. Well done Tolkien Class.

The start of the new school year sees Shakespeare Class commencing the Wider Opportunities music programme. This is a whole class musical instrument tuition programme, with the children having the opportunity to learn either a brass, wind or percussion instrument. The sounds coming from the school hall at this time of the year demonstrate a determination and enthusiasm to learn to play their newly acquired instrument!

Penny, from the Runcorn and district foodbank, led assembly on Wednesday to talk about the work of the foodbank volunteers and the reason why the foodbank was helping families. This was a very informative way to follow-up the delivery of our donations to the foodbank following our Harvest Assembly at the end of September.

A new PTA committee has been established following their AGM on Thursday this week. Please offer your support, when you are able, to the committee so that planned fundraising events are successful. As a school we have benefited enormously from money raised by the PTA over the years - all of which has gone to enhance the opportunities and experiences we are able to provide to the children here at school. Your on-going support and involvement will al always be much appreciated.

It was lovely to receive the news that, following the PTA AGM, we would be receiving a donation of £11000 towards the costs of the school MUGA that was installed at the end of the summer term. We are all loving having the MUGA as a new facility here at school.

What has made me smile this week?

Firstly, Tolkien Class assembly made me smile this week as it did many of the children in the all as they witnessed my face change when eating a toxic sour sweet! Secondly, having the Welsh Birds of Prey in school and seeing the children handling the birds so confidently made me smile greatly.

What's in the news?

It is with pleasure that I am able to announce who are our new school councillors for the forthcoming year ahead. Following speeches and a democratic voting system, our councillors are:

Year 1 - Grace and Jaxon

Year 2 - George and Lucie

Year 3 - Jasmine and Will

Year 4 - Jamie and Marcus

Year 5 - Harrison and Eva

I know they will work hard, with the support of Miss Fiddler, to undertake projects throughout the year. 

It is again with pleasure that I am able to share some staffing news. Miss Dodds has just received confirmation that she has gained a Masters Degree in Education Practice from John Moores University. Miss Dodds completed the programme whilst completing her first year of teaching with us last academic year. We are all very proud of Miss Dodds. 

 

What has happened in school this week?

 

 Shakespeare Class have taken part in the filming for 'Walk my Journey' this week. Working with Theatre in the Quarter and City of Sanctuary, a short film is being created about the journey of refugees. The session this week included drone filming as well as close up filming. They also had the opportunity to meet three refugees, living in Manchester now, but originally from Iran, Ukraine and Eritrea.

 

As we continue to support our global curriculum links, Dahl Class have produced Diwali cards to send to our partner school in India. 

 

 Shakespeare Class had the opportunity to undertake a range of science investigations, exploring separating materials, when working with a Urenco scientist this week. Lots of scientific discussions and learning taking place. As we are gathering evidence to apply for the Primary Science Quality Mark later on in the school year, all these science opportunities are giving Mrs McGrath the evidence she requires. If any parent with a science background wishes to share their knowledge with the children here at school then please do not shy in coming forward. We really are a friendly bunch and would love having 'scientists' in school helping us develop our knowledge and understanding.

What has made me smile this week?

How caring our pupils are of my healthy eating drive this week has made me smile! In assembly on Monday, I discussed with the children how people choose to forgo something in the month of October. I shared with the children how I was going to go without chocolate for my birthday month and asked them all to keep an eye on me. The children have risen to the request and I am being monitored like a hawk! Even on Monday lunchtime - an hour after my assembly - chocolate cake was on the menu and the kitchen staff were told under no circumstances were they allowed to let me have cake!

What's in the news?

Thank you to all those parents who attended our Parental Conferences this week. If you were unable to make an appointment this week then please contact the school office so that an appointment can be made. This first Parental Conference is a really important one and allows for key information to be shared.

Data collection sheets have been kindly updated during our Parental Conferences. Please contact the school office if you didn't update your family contact details as it is imperative that school has up-to-date contact details 

Our School Book Fair this week has been popular with £800 worth of books being purchased. This will give school £400 of commission to purchase books. Thank you ever so much for making the book fair a success. Poppy, Alex J, Jessie and Alice were the raffle winners and selected books from the fair.

Good luck to one of our Parent Governors  - Nic Page - who will be undertaking a tandem sky dive this weekend in aid of Claire House. Happy landing!

 

 

What has happened in school this week?

Following a request from Mrs McGrath - our Science subject leader - for parents with a science background to share their knowledge with the children, we had Mrs Duggan (mum of Erin and Shane) come into assembly on Tuesday to share with the children her work as a bio-medical scientist. Gems and bacteria was the order of the morning. Please don't be shy in coming forward if you have a scientific background and are happy to share your work with the children here at school. Mrs McGrath would love to hear from you.

 

Our annual 'Chemistry with Cabbages' workshop took place in Year 6 on Tuesday, led by Ruth. This workshop saw Tolkien class exploring a range of scientific principles using cabbages as a core source to identify acid, alkali and neutral agents. The creation of a gas proved highly amusing - as you can see from the photograph above.

It is always a delight to be part of the Victorian classroom experience that is created in Tolkien Class, in order to enhance the children's understanding of what life was like in Victorian times. Once again the children were amazingly good sports and took their individual roles very seriously. I must say a special thank you to Sonny, who was happy to be caned (just pretend though - although Mrs Lamb  did come running out of the resources room thinking something horrible was happening in the corridor!) and Tilly and Kaiden who happily wore the dunces hat. Well done Class 6. 

Reverend Andrew Emison led our Harvest Assembly today, exploring the theme of being thankful for the food that we have. Thank you Reverend Emison for giving of your time so freely. In relation to the produce donated, the pupil leadership team delivered it to the Runcorn  and District Food Bank. Thank you again if you donated items.

 

What has made me smile this week?

Playing the Victorian headmaster always brings a smile to my face once we have all come our of character. Tolkien Class, along with Mrs Pye and Miss Hall, played their roles superbly and all looked amazing in their Victorian attire.

What's in the news?

Our Parental Conferences take place next Tuesday and Wednesday, which give you the opportunity to hear how the new school year has begun for your son or daughter. Please contact school to make an alternative appointment if next week is not convenient. These meetings are so important and provide you with the opportunity to share information with members of the school staff.

We are requesting, in line with GDPR compliance, that all data collection forms are updated during our parental conferences next week. Mrs Read and Mrs Cain will be available to facilitate this request running smoothly. I am sure you'll appreciate the importance of having up-to-date contact information in the case of an emergency.

Our school Harvest Assembly takes place next Friday morning at 9am. Parents are most welcome. Please can I request that any donated harvest items are in school by next Thursday. Similarly, it is still not too late to nominate someone to receive a harvest basket. 

Please support our school book fair if you are able to next week.

Mischief Makers Summer Reading Challenge - if your child has received a certificate and medal for completing this challenge then a headteacher's award is being given out when I see the certificate in school.

 

What has happened in school this week?

All the classes have had the opportunity to visit the Life Education Caravan this week and explore a range of science topics relevant to their age. This opportunity is always  very well received by the children who engage in their learning on the caravan with much interest and enthusiasm. Topics ranged from feelings to peer pressure. We extend our thanks to the Rotary Club of Frodsham who part fund this annual programme.

Tilly, Indy and Harry trained this week as our new Dodgeball leaders, along with children from all our partner primary schools. It will be their role to lead sessions in school for all classes in Key Stage 2. They came back from the training fully enthused to commence their new roles in school.

 

 Our support for Jeans4Genes to day resulted in £220 being raised. Many thanks for your donations. Support of genetic research is so vital. It's looking like after 21 years of genetic investigations, Mrs Devereux-Roberts and I might have a name for the condition that affects Meg and Harry. From the 20,000 genes that we each have they have isolated the one gene that both Mrs Devereux-Roberts and I have a fault on. We are hoping that by the middle of next year this may be definitely confirmed. 

 

 What has made me smile this week?

Firstly, having the opportunity to hear home news when chatting to the children at break and lunchtimes and secondly seeing a very excited Potter Class trying to solve the mystery of the missing treasure and secondly the sea of blue denim in school of Friday.

Many thanks for returning consent forms for photographs back so promptly - we now have a clear record of what we can do in relation to using photographs of the children here at school.

Attendance at clubs will be confirmed once we have received all reply slips. I extend my thanks to the staff again for giving so freely their time to run after school clubs.

 

What has happened in school this week?

Monday saw all the children taking part Streetdance sessions run by PDS Coaching. We have an established history with PDS for delivering aspects of our PE delivery programme and this will be no different this year. PDS will be supporting our after school provision which you would have received details on already. These clubs lead to a 'Dance Festival' at Helsby High School in November.

DNA Dan - from Mad Science - led the school assembly on Tuesday morning and shared many scientific experiments with the children. It certainly was a wonderful way to start that school day. A 'Mad Science' after school club will run this term - details have already been sent home with regards to this.

Tuesday afternoon saw Shakespeare Class (Year 5) embark on a refugee project with a number of other schools in Cheshire West which will culminate in a performance in Chester later this term. Working with Matt Baker, from Theatre in the Quarter, is always a treat and we look forward to seeing how this project explores a very sensitive yet very important topic.

Tempest Photographers were in school on Thursday to take individual and family photographs. All proofs have been sent home for you to consider purchasing. Order can be placed online or payments sent into school by the return date of next Friday. 

Excellent learning is taking place in abundance across the school. It has been really great visiting classes to see this learning first hand.

What has made me smile this week?

 Firstly, seeing our new school MUGA in active use during lesson times and during free times has made me smile lots. Secondly, following a parental suggestion, we got Tempest photographers to take photographs of our Year 6s with their buddy. Smiles emanated from the hall during this session for sure.
