Parent's Evening Autumn Term 2018

Our Parents Evenings this term will be held on Tuesday 9th October between 3.45 and 6.30pm and Wednesday 10th October between 3.45 and 6.00pm. A ten minute meeting will be set aside for you to look at your child’s work and discuss their progress with the class teacher.

To support parents and staff keeping to time, we ask that if an extended meeting is required you may be asked to return another day/time.

We ask for parents/carers to telephone the school office to arrange their appointment. We are requesting that you do this as soon as possible to secure a time slot convenient for yourself. Appointments will be given on a first come, first served basis. Please ensure when you arrange your timings that you leave enough time to get between the two buildings, if necessary.

Year 3 Stone Age Workshop

Dear Parents and Carers

Myself and Miss Shercliff have organised a historical workshop on Tuesday the 18th of September. This will involve a company coming into the school for the day to teach the children about the Stone Age which is currently part of our theme topic. Each child will be dressing in period costume and there will be various activities. This will be a fantastic day for the children!

Enrichment activities have a rich content delivered by specialists which supports our learning by bringing topics studied to life in real and interesting ways. In order to enable us to continue to inspire our pupils with such experiences please contribute towards the visit cost by paying £4 on parent pay.

Kind regards,

Year 3 Team.

Welcome back Letter September 2018

Dear Parents/Carers,

We hope you all had a wonderful summer holiday and we warmly welcome you back to school. We are looking forward to a busy and exciting term with lots of stimulating learning opportunities which your children will share with you. Our theme for this half term is Diversity and the value we are focusing on is Being Respectful.

We welcome Mrs Rennie back to school after her maternity leave, she now works as part of the Year 5 team. We also have four new members of staff who have joined our school family. Miss Kellett (no relation to our Mrs Kellett in the office) and Mrs Saied are both working as support staff at the Junior site. Miss Shercliff is our Year 3 teacher and Miss Bhayani is our Reception teacher, they both had the opportunity to work with their classes last term so they have settled in well.

Please may we remind all Parents and Carers to ensure the office staff have all updated contact information, eg new mobile numbers, contact numbers for other members of the family and any change of address. This information is vital in ensuring we can easily communicate with you all.

This summer, Parent Hub have completely upgraded the app to a newer version. You will have received information regarding this from Parent Hub directly during the summer break. Please check your email accounts for an email from Parent hub with instructions on how to access the new, improved app. In the meantime please check the website and notice boards for all letters until the new Parent Hub is fully up and running.

We value and appreciate all your communication and comments. Please email communciation@manleypark.com if you have any queries or questions.

Whole School Transition Information letter

Dear Parents/Carers,

The pupils at Manley Park have had a busy and exciting time at school. The end of the summer term is fast approaching and soon it will be time for the pupils to move into the next year group. In order to ensure their transition from one class to the next is smooth and stress- free, we have planned two whole school transition days. This will give the children an opportunity to build up relationships with their new teachers and teaching assistants. It will also ensure that they can settle into their new classroom and start to learn new things, which will create a positive start for them in September.
