Arts Weeks Displays 2021


                                                            Arts Weeks Displays 

This Year's theme was inside out. As we couldn't have our usual event. We thought we'd show you what all the classes have been working so hard to achieve.

Year 6 Elm's reward trip to Whitstable

Children from Elm were very lucky with the weather for their reward trip to Whitstable Beach. It was sunny and warm, perfect for lots of swimming.
The children were chosen due to their positive attitudes to learning, always trying their hardest, excellent behaviour choices, good attendance and for consistently showing our school values.

A Visit from an Olympian #pe #tts #sportsstar

Today was a very exciting day at Manor Way because we got the chance to meet an Olympian!

Each class had a special assembly with Marilyn Okoro, who is a British track and field athlete. She won the bronze medal for the 4 x 400m relay in the 2008 Olympics and brought it in to show us! 

Each child has the chance to ask her a question. We found out about her childhood, her inspiration (Serena Williams) and she even told us about her training schedule. When competing, she would train for 6 full hours per day! 

Some classes also got the chance to take part in a short circuit of sit ups, press ups, jumps and mountain climbers! If you didn’t get to try the circuit out today, you could give it a go at home!

Put your favourite song on and perform 30s of each exercise!
