Sweet Music

Moorhen children have the use of the schools musical instruments and today was one of those beautiful days where children could just chill out in the sunshine on the field and play a little sweet music.

Musical Instrument Craft

Summer term 2: Children at Moorhens made lots of mess and had loads of fun making their own musical instruments out of recyclable materials. They made everything from drums to guitars. Bottles were filled with pasta to either make the sound of the rain or the more popular instrument, the maraca.

Summer term 2:
This term the theme is music. The children turned a very plain cardboard tube into a beautiful didgeridoo. With all artwork designed by the children themselves. They dipped cotton bud tips into paint to apply their designs.

Expansion Update 15th June

The progress being made with the expansion is in line with the anticipated schedule. A lot of progress has been made with the school's extended hall.

The extension means that the hall's size will increase by a really significant 60m2. In terms of lessons, there will only be one class in the hall at a time, so the extra space is a bonus. The contractors will extend the existing flooring. Very exciting.

In the photograph below you can see that the ground work for the main block is well underway. The crates will be filled with concrete. 

We are presently planning for our new library/ quiet area. This is located where the existing Y3 classroom is situated. Mrs Menmuir is looking at lots of different designs for book storage and we will make the space a calm but inviting area for children to read in. A big advantage of this is that Moorhens children will be able to access this area after school once the build is complete. This means that they will eventually have access to four different zones - the two chalets, the ICT suite and the new library.
