We are very much looking forward to seeing you all again tomorrow for the start of the new academic year.
Due to some overrunning building works in the car park there will be a redirected route between the playground and Middletune Avenue gate. This should only be for the morning drop-off. All entrances to the school will be in operation tomorrow.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
It's coming to that time of year again where we have to say goodbye to our Year 6s. They had such a lovely time at their end-of-school party and we have shared lots of photos on our Facebook page.
Good luck to everybody in Year 6 - we hope you'll come back and visit us soon!
Every year we give out awards to celebrate achievements in and out of school. Every child at Regis Manor is amazing for one reason or another but here are some extra special students who we thought deserved some recognition.
Well done everybody!
This term, Regis Manor has been working on their contribution to a very important art project to commemerate the fallen soldiers of WWI. Every child has made a poppy and all of these will be displayed at Murston Old Church. Everybody has a slightly different take on the art project but we think they all look wonderful. Well done everybody!
Our end of year results are now available on the website. We are very proud to say that the KS2 results are the best the school has ever had!
As you are most likely aware, we are having a new building to add to our growing school and the School Council wanted to find out a little bit more about its progress and some behind-the-scenes info so they interviewed Mr Pearce, one of the builders in charge of the site.
School Council (SC): What are you making?
Mr Pearce (P): We're making a new building for you
SC: Why are you making a new building?
P: So you have more space and more people can come to the school
SC: What will be the effects of having more people in the school?
P: I think it will mean you will have more friends.
SC: How long will it take to finish?
P: About 2-3 months
SC: How many builders are working on the site?
P: About 30-35 but they don't all work at the same time as we have different jobs.
SC: Is it difficult being a builder?
P: It's hard work, especially in this heat. It's very tiring.
SC: How much material does it take to make a building?
P: We've used about 8 tons! The building is mostly made of steel which is obviously very heavy.
Some interesting questions from our School Council there and as you can see, lots of progress has been made in a short space of time. We even have stairs now!
We're excited to see how it progresses over the summer and even more excited to see it finished!
Thanks, School Council, for your interesting interview!
Please note that the disco times for Wednesday have changed:
Key Stage 1 - 3:15 - 4:45
Key Stage 2 - 5:00 - 6:30
Some of Year 2 were fortunate enough yesterday to attend the Infant Games. It was an opportunity for them to try out lots of different sports and activities like archery, gymnastics and some martial arts. The children loved being able to sample lots of different things as there were some they hadn't even thought of!
Thanks to the Infant Games for holding a great event!
Year 2 have been so lucky to have duck eggs arrive this week! Very quickly, a little hole appeared in one of the eggs and in no time at all, 6 little ducklings had been hatched!
Theyve already developed little personalities and have had their first swim in the padlding pool! The children (and adults!) are loving having them in school and we are becoming very attached!
Polite reminder: please keep children away from the fences around the school site at the end of the day as we have had a number of complaints from residents of things being thrown over and banging on fences.
The children were very excited to have the opportunity to test their speed kicking a football with the speed cage that came in. Of course, Mr Magrath had to have a go too!
The children recorded incredibly quick speeds; around 50 miles an hour!
Well done everyone for having a go!
The children are very excited today; cranes have arrived on the building site!
We are hosting football courses 6th and 7th August! Book here:
As part of Healthy Living Week, the children were able to take part in a trampolining workshop where they tried to accumulate 1000 jumps on their bouncemeters by performing quick bounces, high bounces and sprints. They only took part in the workshop for 20 minutes but everybody was worn out at the end and we definitely got our heart rates up!
Thanks very much Bounce Beyond for giving the children a fab time and thank you Miss Gibbons for inviting them in!
Thank you to everybody who turned up for Sports Day yesterday! The children had a wonderful time with some new races and we hope you did too! A huge thank you to Miss Gibbons and the other members of staff for organising and running the day and of course thank you to Mr Perry for his very technical and very accurate measuring!
We're looking forward to doing it all again next year!
Year 2 have been working so hard on their production of Peter Pan and the hard work definitely paid off! They had so many lines to remember which they delivered with such loud, clear voices and the costumes were fantastic!
Thank you to all the parents for coming to watch them, thank you to the staff for all the effort involved and well done to Year 2 for putting on such a fantastic performance!
Yesterday, some of our children from years 2-5 took part in the finals of the gymnastics competition at Pegasus Gymnastics Club. We got through to the finals after winning every age group in the Sittingbourne and Sheppey competition!
The children all competed amazingly well and remembered their routines! We are just awaiting result!
As you can see, work has truly begun on the new build with concrete being poured! We're hoping to see some real developments once it's set!
After working so hard on their SATs, Year 2 enjoyed a trip to Chessington where they could have fun and learn about underwater animals as part of their topic!
It was a long day and not everybody managed to keep their eyes open, but everybody had a whale of a time!
It might only be the first week of term, but Year 6 have already been busy practising for their production! We can't wait to see it!
This week, a team of Years 5 and 6 went to the Swale Academies Football Tournament where they competed against other schools in the Trust. Although they didn't place this time, the games were very close and they played incredibly well. Well done everybody!
It can't have escaped your notice that Years 2 and 6 both had their SATs this term. They all worked so hard and we are so proud of them for doing their best so we thought they deserved a treat!
To conclude their topic of 'Animals', Reception visited Wingham Wildlife Park where they encountered chimpanzees, penguins, bears and even dinosaurs! Everyone, adults and children, had a fabulous time!
The children, staff and parents of Regis Manor were treated to a delightful performance this week as Year 5 have been working so hard on their production of 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory'. Throughout the term, they have been studying the topic 'Chocolate' and have learnt about the chocolate-making process, where cocoa beans come from and about Fairtrade. This was all tied together with a neat little performance in which everybody played a part and don't they look fabulous?!
A huge thank you to the staff members who worked hard on the props and costumes and well done to Year 5 for your hard work!
Last week, Regis Manor took part in a 'Diversity Day' where the children got to learn about different cultures in different countries and then take part in some related activities. We had all sorts going on such as dot art from Australia, henna hand designs in India and food tasting from many other countries.
We also had some parents who volunteered to speak to the children about their cultures which was really interesting. Everyone enjoyed doing something a little bit different and we learned loads!
We have adapted our Privacy Notices in order to provide parents and pupils with clearer and more specific information regarding the processing of personal data.
Work has begun on our new building! The children and staff are all very excited to see it unfold. We'll keep you updated with the latest developments too!
Well done to our Attendance winners: 6G and 2H!
6G also managed to get 100% attendance so we'll see you in your own clothes on Friday!
Watching a film doesn't mean being stuck in the dark! Enjoy two super films in the sun with our outdoor cinema event this Bank Holiday Monday. Please note that Fast and Furious 8 has been changed to The Greatest Showman.
We hope to see you there!
Now the weather is finally heating up it's time to ditch slippers for sandals and coats for sunscreen. Find out how to keep everybody safe:
We're sure you couldn't have missed the news that Harry and Meghan are getting married this weekend. Well Key Stage 1 have been learning all about it and took part in numerous related activities including making crowns, designing wedding outifts, creating menus and building Lego castles. They thoroughly enjoyed doing something a little bit different and finding out about the big day. Well done, everyone!
Now the warm weather is starting to make an appearance, Year 1 have decided to liven up their outside area. They planted all kinds of beautiful flowers, mint to make the area smell fantastic and provide more sensory opportunities and some poppy seeds which will look stunning once they start growing. The children enjoyed getting their hands dirty and looking after the plants by watering and weeding them. We can't wait to see it all fully bloomed!
It really makes us smile when pupils go that little bit further with their learning and these two are no excpetion. To enhance their knowledge of their topic 'Mother Earth', these superstars made some excellent models as part of their homework.
Great work, keep it up!
Pabulum Catering have been working with our school to provide fresh, tasty school meals. This partnership has allowed us to encourage your children to enjoy healthy eating.
It is essential as part of the service, we ask for feedback from yourselves. We want to hear your views about the catering provision at our school; what your child/children enjoy and what you think could be improved.
Please click the link to submit your response. The deadline to complete this survey is Friday 25th May 2018.
Well done to 1C and 6L for getting the highest attendance this week (figures shown have been rounded- 6L achieved a slightly higher attendance!)
Key Stage 1, you need to beat 1C!
After finding a recipe for Banana Butterfly Cakes in a book, the children asked to make the cakes and who better to help them with that than Quentin from Pabulum!
He kindly came down and helped the children to make their cupcakes which they thoroughly enjoyed decorating and promptly eating!
Thank you very much to Quentin for helping the children and well done Reception for making such beautiful cakes!
If you would like more information and cyber-safety advice regarding the game 'Fortnite' then please follow this link:
As our younger children are learning about 'Animals' as part of their topic, the Mobile Farm came to visit them to tell them all about how to look after the animals and why they are kept on the farm.
They learnt how you can use milk from different animals to make all sorts of things like butter, cheese and yoghurt and how you can get wool from sheep to make clothes. They were extremely delighted when Kevin the pig started oinking in his sleep!
Each child also got to hold a one week old chick and meet the farm dogs, Teasel and Flora.
Everybody had a great time and learnt lots about the animals. We hope they'll visit us again soon!
Year 6 have been using maps to find countries that grow cocoa beans as part of their topic 'Chocolate'.
It has been an exciting week in Nursery with the children exploring the topic of minibeasts. They have been sharing stories of the minibeasts they have found at home and enjoyed exploring the school to discover more little creatures to take a closer look.
The children took these ideas back to the classroom and created minibeasts of their own.
Great work Nursery!
From this afternoon we will be using the new temporary footpath if you are entering or leaving the site via North Street. The builders have also now finished putting their fencing in place. As a result of this you will not be able to walk from the Year R area to the office or Nursery directly. Similarly if you are coming in from Middletune Avenue you will need to walk around the school to get to Year R and not past the nursery. These changes will remain in place until after the completion of the building project.
If you have any questions please speak to the office.
Well done to 1C (again!) and both 4HP and 6L for fantastic attendance last week!
A huge congratulations to Year 3 who worked incredibly hard putting together their production which they performed to their parents this week. They taught us all about ecology and how to look after our environment as well as introduce us to four famous 'Conservation Heroes'. Everybody had such loud, clear voices and fantastic actions to the songs!
Thank you to all the parents for your support with the costumes and line-learning and of course a massive thank you to the Year 3 staff who made it happen!
Well done, Year 3!
Well done again to 1C and 5H for having the highest attendance in their Key Stage!
Can we ask parents to please be considerate to our neighbours when parking near school by not blocking drives and keeping resident access clear at all times.
Parent Council reps will be speaking to parents and carers over the coming week to collect ideas and opinions related to the following issue:
- Improving communication between school and home.
We value your contributions; please speak to a Parent Council representative or email [email protected] with 'FAO Parent Council' in the subject line.
Some you you entering via the North Street gate will notice that work has begun to move the pedestrian enterance to the other side of the school field. This should be completed later this week and then work will begin on the new building itself.
Exciting times ahead!
Last term, the mid-day meals supervisors ran a competition to see who could design the best poster to display the lunchtime rules. The lucky winners, one from Key Stage 1 and one from Key Stage 2, had the very special reward of having their parents come to join them for lunch!
Well done to both of our winners, your posters look amazing!
Next week, Year 3 will be unveiling their production! We don't want to give too much away, but here's a sneak peek at their rehearsal.
We hope to see you next week!
Well done to 1C and 5H for having 100% attendance in the last week of last term! We'll see you in non-uniform on Friday!
Well done to this superstar who attended every day in the last two terms and managed to bag herself a voucher for Pizza Hut!
What a great way to start the term! Enjoy!
Last Friday was Sport Relief!
The children took part in a circuit where they had to try lots of different skills such as sit-ups, star jumps, balances and relay runs. Everybody got their heart rate up, had good fun and managed to raise money in the process!
Well done for joining in, everybody!
Key Stage 1 have been looking at the topic of 'Dinosaurs' and as part of this they made their own clay fossils and had some voracious visitors!
The children learned lots about the age of the dinosaurs and got some interesting facts about different species of dinosaur whilst getting to see real-life fossils and even dinosaur teeth! Everybody (including the adults!) had a great time and learned loads. Thanks to the team for bringing their interesting pets to see us!
This term, Reception and Nursery have been looking at the topic 'People Who Help Us' and have had lots of visitors from the local community to enhance their learning.They have been learning about Superheroes (unfortunately they were all too busy to visit), Vets, Police Officers and Fire Fighters. The children were lucky enough to chat to Police Officers and Fire Fighters, try on their uniforms and sit in the Fire Engine!
Thank you to our kind volunteers who took the time to come and visit us!
It wasn't that long ago that we shared the good news about Ollie getting his red belt. Well, at his latest grading last week, after performing lots of different movements and working for 'a really long time, like 2 or 3 hours!', Ollie was awarded his yellow belt!
Well done, keep it up!
We are pleased to announce that our Ofsted report is available from today and Regis Manor is a GOOD school.
You can read our Ofsted report here or if you would prefer you can collect a hard copy from the school office.
We would like to thank you all for your continued support.

A few weeks ago, Regis Manor found out some very exciting news .Maddison in Year 6 found out she had come 1st in the Sittingbourne in Bloom contest. She competed against lots of other children in the area. She was really happy and excited when she found out she won the competition. Maddison went to a café in the Sittingbourne town centre to be told that her design will be planted on the roundabout outside of Aldi in Sittingbourne.
Not only that, but we had a number of ‘Highly Commended’ certificates too!
We are all very proud of you!
Throughout the year, we invite parents to come in for a ‘Work Sharing’ opportunity where pupils can show off the work they’ve been doing and parents can have an informal chat with class teachers. Thank you to everybody who came; we hope you enjoyed seeing what your children have been up to and we looking forward to seeing you all at the next one!
(Also a huge thank you to the parents who agreed to have their photos taken!)
At Regis Manor, we have a wide variety of talents, from gymnastics to football and even show-jumping!
This young lady took part in a show-jumping competition, which she says she doesn’t do very often, and managed to bag herself second place!
Doesn’t she look pleased about it?!
This News item has been brought to you by our Media Team:
On Friday 9th March, Regis Manor took part in World Book Day. You could come in as something from space like an alien or the solar system or as your favourite book character. Some of our most popular outfits were Harry Potter and Where’s Wally. Everyone enjoyed going round to the different classes. In 5C we were writing a leaflet about a creature from Pandora. The inspiration for that was from the film 'Avatar'. In 5H we were making astronauts out of tinfoil and then writing instructions about how to make it. In 6L we were making our own alien creatures and then writing a paragraph of description about our aliens. In 6G we were making our own comic strips that were based around space. All the classes around the school did different things and they were all great!
Good news! Our coffee morning 22nd March is back on!
Do pop in for a nice coffee and a chat.
For an upcoming Science experiment, we will be making ‘edible soil’. For this we will need 500ml bottles. If you have any spare, please bring them in!
Children in reception, Year 1 and Year 2 have been busy drawing colourful pictures of their mums which will be published in the Sheerness Times Guardian & Sittingbourne News Extra from the 7th March 2018. Make sure you pick up a copy to see their fantastic drawings!
As we were unable to hold our Work Sharing opportunity due to the snow, we have now rearranged this to Wednesday 14th March 3:30 - 4:30.
We look forward to seeing you!
Our next Parent Council meeting will take place on Friday 20th April at 2:30pm
After the terible weather conditions last week, we had to postpone our World Book Day celebrations. Here is the menu for our World Book Day lunch:

You may have heard about or even donated to this young lady's campaign to raise money for the Little Princess Trust by cutting her incredibly long hair into this grown-up looking bob and donating it to this deserving charity. In addition to this, she also managed to raise £362!
Well done, we're so proud of your achievement!
This term, Key Stage 1 have been learning all about the Great Fire of London and today was the day (finally!) when they got to see the fire in action!
Over the the last few weeks, the children have been making Tudor-style buildings including houses, dentists and of course, the bakery on Pudding Lane.
This young lady used her initiative and made this beautiful bakery at home, complete with the interior and yet was so happy to have it set on fire!
Year 2 watched in awe as the fire, fanned by the wind, quickly spread along the street.
In no time at all, most of the street had been reduced to ash.
Luckily, Miss Hammond was on hand with the fire extinguisher to put out the last few flames.
Well done for the effort that went into your houses Year 2, we hope you enjoyed seeing them on fire!
We hope you enjoyed 4HP's class assembly yesterday and we hope you learnt a lot about the Titanic!
A huge thank you to the Year 4 staff for all their hard work and well done to the children for such clear, loud voices and brilliant costumes!
This term, Regis Manor was invited to take part in a gymnastics competition against other shcools from Sittingbourne and Sheppey. We entered teams from Year 2 right up to Year 6 and every team did amazingly well!
After completing two floor routines and a vault, 3 teams from Regis Manor will be going through to the finals after coming 1st and 2nd in their age group.
Well done everybody, you did a brilliant job! Good luck for the finals!
Well done 2H and 4HP!
This term, Key Stage 1 have been studying ‘The Great Fire of London’ and one young man went above and beyond with his homework!
He has created a London scene, complete with the River Thames and flames!
The attention to detail is incredible, with working lights and tiny flower patches (not yet on fire!)
Well done! Keep up the good work!
Parents are warmly invited to visit their Reception child's classroom from 3:15 until 4 pm on Wednesday 7th February to see what they've been up to this year and meet with the teachers.
This news item has been brought to you by our Media Team! All information and articles have been taken and created by the pupils.
You might remember reading the ‘Swale football trials‘ that we recently put on our website: well we have some amazing news!
Two children from Regis Manor travelled to Oasis Academy to do trials for 2 and a half hours for the Swale Schools FA District football team. They started by warming up and gradually started training more in depth. Altogether they played 6 matches in total with 5 different coaches judging their performance. After all their hard work had finished they were shocked to hear (even after their parents tricked them!) that both of the boys had got through! They told us that they had a picture taken and it was put in the newspaper and the Swale football team website which you can go and check out!
Well done boys and good luck for your first match!
This news item has been brought to you by our Media Team! All information and articles have been created by the pupils.
Today was ‘Wear Something Orange Day’ in honour of Muscular Dystrophy which Regis Manor chose to support after the suggestion of our Head Girl as her dad is running a marathon for the same cause. Good luck! Everyone made a lot of effort and because of this we have managed to raise £307.72 so far. Thank you everyone and well done!
This term, Nursery and Reception have been looking at the topic of 'Fairytales' and this week, the children in the Reception classes have been using all the knowledge they've been learning in their Read Write Inc lessons to write letters, as Goldilocks, to the Three Bears to apologise for making such a mess in their house!
Keep up the good work, everyone!
Well done to 2H and 4HP for their amazing attendance this week!
For the last few weeks, the staff and children at Regis Manor have been in competition with each other to see who can create the best Book Corner!
Inviting Book Corners can encourage children to read and to perhaps choose texts they wouldn't usually so we wanted to see what amazing ideas everybody could come up with and of course, we weren't disappointed!
The Reading Champions from each class were given criteria to mark each Book Corner against such as 'Is there comfortable seating?' and 'Is there a mixture of fiction and non-fiction books available?' and then there was a vote to decide the winner for each Key Stage.
The Reading Champions chose the following winners because they were 'eye-catching, exciting, cosy and cool!' and we agree with them!
Well done to everybody for making such a huge effort with their Book Corners and an extra well done to RK, 1D, 2H and 3V as our winners!

On the 12th of January 2018 it was Art Day. The classes were mixed into house groups and we got to visit different classrooms to try different activities: there was potato stamping, concentric circles, pop art, abstract art etc. The artists we focused on were Paul Klee, Van Gohg, Andy Warhol and loads more. It was such a great day: all the classes I experienced were fantastic! I’m sure everyone wishes everyday was art day.
This news item has been brought to you by our Media Team! All information, articles and photographs have been taken and created by the pupils.
Two of our children were lucky enough to be chosen to try-out for the Swale Schools FA District football team. They were chosen by Mr Magrath to go through the try-outs because they play for clubs and dedicate a lot of time to training. They had to play against 50 children for 25 spots in the first try-out which will then be cut to only 15 spaces to play for Swale School FA District football team after the final trial tomorrow. Connor said it will mean the world to him if he got through and could play for his county. Good luck boys!
We will soon have Coffee Mornings which we would love you to attend! Bookings are yet to be confirmed, but we are hoping to have a range of professionals to give support and advice.
The dates will be 6th Feb, 20th Feb, 6th March 22nd March, 17th April and 1st May.
Put it in your diary!
Following a consultation period we can now confirm that a contractor has been appointed to build our new entrance to the school and building. They are a company called Built-Offsite.
The next step following this appointment is for the company to carry out the final surveys and clear the planning restrictions on the planning consent. This will happen over the next 8-10 weeks where you may see little to no actual activity on site. Following this period, they will be setting up their working site and gaining vehicular access via North Street. We will write to you closer to the time to confirm when this is happening and what disruption, if any, this will cause to parents coming in via the North Street gate.
This is a very exciting time for the school and both the school and the contractors will ensure there is a good level of communication moving forwards. If you have any questions please email them to the school office so they can be forwarded to the appropriate person.
Your child(ren) will be bringing home a letter about Pupil Premium. It enables our school to receive extra funding which we can put into your child's education.
Even if you don't want your child(ren) to receive Free School Meals, the extra money can help us provide extra staff and resources to make their learning environment even better!
Applying is really easy; just visit
and get an immediate answer. The school will be notified if your application is successful but nobody else will know you have registered and it will not affect any other benefits you are claiming.
If you need help with applying online, please see Miss Campbell in the office.
If you'd like to have a Winner Dinner, please complete the slip on the letter your child has brought home by 16th January and book the meal in the usual way with ParentPay.
At the end of last term, we invited parents to take complete our Parent View Survey and completed surveys were entered into a raffle. This young lady was the lucky recipient of a Christmas Hamper which she said was full of yummy food and drink; just perfect for Christmas!
We also had a prize which children with 100% attendance were eligible to recieve. This young man was lucky (and dedicated!) enough to win himself a television which is now up in his room!
Well done both of you and keep attending everyone!
At Regis Manor we do so many Christmassy things that it's impossible to write a post about every one of them so we've made a little video for you, accompanied by the Key Stage 2 choir. View it on our Facebook page now!
Last week, two teams of athletes from Years 3-6 were taken to an athletics competition where they had to compete in many challenges to show off their skill. Our 5/6 team came 5th and our 3/4 team did amazingly well by coming second!
All the children had a great time and we're very proud of their achievements. Well done!
After Year 1's incredible performance last week, Reception had big shoes to fill but what a show they put on!
With loud, clear speaking and singing voices, we watched as they retold the story of Mary and Joseph in brilliant costumes!
Well done, Reception!
Last week, this young man was a bundle of nerves and excitement as he had his first ever Martial Arts grading!
After an initial warm-up, he had to show off the different punches and kicks he had been learning and was eventually rewarded with a certificate and a new belt!
He's now working towards his next belt and his learning all sorts of new things for his next grading.
Well done! Keep it up!
Well last week we really got into the swing of Christmas! The tree went up at the beginning of the week but it was looking a little bare so the children all made a decoration to hang on it whilst we sang Christmas carols during our decoration assembly. As if they couldn’t get enough, the Key Stage 2 choir immediately went to Regis Gate and sang even more carols there!
The residents had a lovely time and joined in with some of their favourites and the children were treated to mince pies and a visit to Santa afterwards!
Finally, to top off our festive mood, Year One performed their nativity ‘The Christmas Stars’ and what a wonderful job they did! Their voices were so loud and clear, their singing was beautiful and they looked fantastic. Well done Year One!
Of course, none of these things can happen without the hard work of the staff so a huge thank you to them too.
We’re expecting lots more Christmassy goings on this week so do check back in to find out what we’ve been up to!

This week, we were treated to a piano performance by one of our Year 6s. He is taking his first piano exam next week and we were allowed a sneak preview! He did brilliantly well, playing to an audience of over 200- I’m sure you’ll join us in wishing him luck!
The 1st of December marks our annual hoop display! Every class has worked incredibly hard to produce a hoop based around a Christmas song. We have themes ranging from 'Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer' to 'A Spaceman Came Travelling' and we think every class has done a marvellous job!

On Monday 27th November 2017 we split up into 4 groups (singing, drama, music and dance). Then, we went into different classes with different children and teachers to practise our routines. It was related to Christmas because we either sang Christmas songs or danced to it. In the afternoon, the whole of the school was watching us perform on our school stage! It was lots of fun and we are looking forward to our next House Day!

Recently our Regis Manor Sports Leaders travelled to Iwade Primary School. They met a woman called Mel who is in charge of the school athletic tournaments. They discussed all of the roles that they could have as Sports Leaders and their responsibilities (so hopefully now they will be good at their job).They invented their own sport games that were a bit more fun than the basics like: basketball, football, netball, cricket, rugby and rounders. When they did that they could use ideas that the people had already come up with or they could use their own ideas. They had 15 minutes to plan their games and 5 minutes to test it out before the Sports Leaders from different schools tried it out and then of course our Sports Leaders tried the other games. They each received a certificate to show they are now Sports Leader trained. We’re excited to have the Sports Leaders organise some new activities in our school!

In order to provide a positive environment for our children, we respectfully ask parents to refrain from swearing on the school site.
As part of the school’s commemoration of Remembrance Day, the children have been learning about why we hold a 2 minute silence and what Remembrance Sunday is all about.
In honour of this, Year 2 created some artwork which we think is just stunning. One young man also used his own initiative and ‘planted’ some crosses in his back garden to ‘remember the soldiers that died’. If you look carefully, you can also spot a soldier at the back of the garden watching over his comrades.
Well done Year 2, amazing work.
As a gymnastics enthusiast, this young man has spent weeks training for his latest competition. With jumps, tumbles and squat throughs (apparently they’re a real thing!), he managed to forward-roll his way to joint first place for his floor routine and second for his vault which was at a staggering height of 110cm!
We are so proud of your achievements! Well done!

At Regis Manor we like to have a sense of community so we often do ‘House Days’ where the children get together in their houses to work together on different activities.
Yesterday we had a ‘Maths Day’ with a myriad of activities ranging from shape-hunting to problem-solving and even some maths-related art!
The children relished the opportunity to work in different groups and do things that were a little bit different to their everyday activities- we look forward to the next House Day
Welcome to our Head Boy and Girl blog! We are very excited to represent Regis Manor by being Head Boy and Girl. To get this responsibility we had to write a letter to Mr Perry and Miss Beevis and tell them why we should be chosen. We believe that we are helpful and considerate and Mr Perry and Miss Beevis clearly agree!
This blog will be updated regularly so make sure you keep in touch, the blog can be found here.
Last week, a team of Year 5 and 6 children represented Regis Manor in a Tag Rugby tournament. Some of them had never even played Tag Rugby before but managed to win 2 of their 4 games!
The adults said they showed a fantastic positive attitude and, as you can tell by their faces, everybody had a great day.
Well done everyone!
As the winner of the South, South East in Bloom competition, Francesca was invited to an awards ceremony to collect her plaque and certificate- she looks so proud! Well done again, Francesca!

You may remember that this young lady won the Sittingbourne in Bloom competition and had her design planted up just outside Aldi.
Well, her design was then entered into a further competition: 'South, Southeast in Bloom'. The awards took place yesterday and our budding designer only went and got the gold!!
She was the overall winner in the category for the best single floral display- a huge well done!!!!
By wearing our Jeans for Genes, Regis Manor has managed to raise £302!! Well done everybody!!!
