Here at Manley Park we encourage our children to read lots of books and over the half term holidays we would like our parents to join in too! With Halloween coming up soon there are some excellent books to read. The World Book Day Charity has some good recommendations. The link for this can be seen below:
As part of their training to get ready for their roles here at Manley Park, the Prefects and Playleaders were taken to Robinwood for a weekend residential to complete team-building activities. Photos from this weekend can be seen below. Everybody had a great time and came together to work as a team in their respective groups, supporting each other when somebody struggled with an activity.
Some of the Year 6 children went to Ghyll Head in the Lake District over the weekend of the 14th-16th July 2017. They took part in a variety of activities over the course of the weekend. A selection of pictures can be seen below.
This Morning 6JE held an assembly commemorating Remembrance Sunday and Armistice Day. The class researched the history of the poppy and it's significance and shared it with the class. The children also shared some poems that they had written about World War 1 and the poppy. Some photographs are seen below.
This year the children of year 6 decided to raise the money for their reward trip by taking part in the 1000km challenge. This involved walking from the school to Turnmoss Wood, where a 500 metre track was set up for the children and adults to use to build up the distance. It worked out that with the walk to Turmoss and back included everyone needed to do 20-23 laps (10-11.5km) each. Everyone did this and really enjoyed themselves. On the walk back year 6 stopped and played a game of 30-a-side rounders. Below are the photos from the day.
