YEAR 5 MATHS CHALLENGE
THURSDAY 23RD MAY
A team of Year 5 Maths children competed against 8 other schools in the Year 5 Maths challenge tonight. The questions consisted of team rounds and bonus individual rounds and were VERY hard!
Manea's Year 5 team did really well, working together to solve questions in short spaces of time - their best round was the Extra Thinks round.
Overall they came third in the competition with only half a point between them and the team who came second.
This was an amazing effort by all members of the team with lots of hard work and practice during their lunchtimes.
Well done Manea Maths team!
Wednesday 27th and Thursday 28th March 2019.

Some of the children who attend choir sessions at lunch times had the opportunity to entertain the Manea Dinners on Wednesday afternoon, singing their Christmas carols. The members of Manea dinners had a lovely time and we too had a lovely time. Thank you for allowing us to share some of the wonderful things we do at Manea Primary school with the community.
We are very pleased that our new bookshelves in the library are getting full. This is with thanks to one of our governors, Mrs O'Riley, who works for Usbourne books and has done some fundraising to enable use to purchase some new books. They fill the shelves wonderfully, so the children now have a wider range of book to choose from when they change their books. We would like to take this opportunity to share this wonderful news with you all and to thank Mrs O'Riley.
Last week we held a special market place that had a focus of challenging stereotypes and different families. Have a look below to see some of our stalls!
This afternoon, a group of children represented the school in the remembrance service at the church. They placed crosses by the war memorial to mark 100 years since the end of WW1.
Today the whole school took part in a sponsored buddy read. Each class completed 20 minutes of reading with a buddy from a different class. All children enjoyed their time reading with each other. Please remember to bring in any sponsor forms and any monies raised. Thank you in advance for your support given.

WHAT MANEA LOOKS LIKE TO ME
We are so pleased to have a celebration of Manea board up in our school. This has been a project led by Belinda and has brought a whole host of different people and groups from the community to work on producing parts of a whole board. Can you spot our class pieces? What about the Brownies or British Legion pieces?

THE MANEA GALA
The children in year six took part in the Manea Gala Parade and dressed up well for the celebrations of 60 years of the Manea Gala.
The Manea Gala Continued
The Manea Gala takes place each July and has done for 60 years. The day begins with a wonderful parade of floats around the village followed by a big gala located on the village park. Our headteacher Miss Froggatt and our year 5 teacher Miss Taylor even took part in the dog show with their dogs!
On the 26th March 2015 our school choir took part in a concert along with a number of local schools at Cromwell Community College. We all celebrated the shows from the Westend and Broadway. Our children sang two songs from 'Joseph and his Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat' and joined with the other schools to sing a couple of Queen songs from 'We Will Rock You.'
The children thoroughly enjoyed the day at rehearsals and performed really well for a crowded hall full of friends and family.
These are the amazing tiles the children in the school and preschool have produced for the community project. Each class worked together to create a tile about what Manea means to them. These tiles will form part of a bigger board with many tiles from other groups within the Manea community and will be displayed for you all to see.
