Recent feedback comments from our questionnaire for parents. 

"We’ve found Manor Park to be such a friendly, welcoming and positive school. All the staff have been approachable and kind. I’ve been really impressed with the consistent approach to phonics teaching. I love that whilst learning and progressing are clear priorities, so is the children enjoying school and being able to make the most of having fun as children!"

"Amazing teachers who have the time for all the children and parents. Lessons and parent info are well thought out"

"The teachers are very hands on with each child and are easy to talk to. The school has a very friendly and supportive learning environment that encourages and supports strong links with home"

"My child has been here for the past year and we can say that the attitude towards the kids is wonderful! He loves to come to school and that tells us everything"

"My children have been to a lot of different schools and can honestly say this school has been the best, it ticks every box"

"I would like to thank all reception staff for supporting and teaching my child. I am proud of how she has grown in such a short amount of time"

Spring Term

We have looked at the children’s ideas on the ‘Wish Tree’ and have decided that ‘Food’ will be our next topic. We ‘brainstormed’ the topic of ‘Food’ with the children. Throughout this topic we will be:

· Learning about where food comes from

· Taking on roles in our ‘Cafe’ role play area

· Writing for a purpose e.g. menus, labels, booklets, recipes, signs etc

· Learning new songs and rhymes about food

· Learning how to cook spaghetti and meatballs

· Tasting different types of food from around the world

· Looking at stories about food e.g. ‘Tyler makes spaghetti’, ‘Cleversticks’.

· Learning how we can keep healthy

· Keeping a fruit and vegetable diary

· Learning about Chinese New Year.
