The class had a great time getting involved in the Big Schools' Birdwatch. Using binoculars and bird books we identified the birds flying past and those that landed too.
Blackbird 1, Black-headed gull 15, Blue tit 2, Carrion crow 1, House sparrow 3, Magpie 2, Starling 2, Great tit 1, Greenfinch 1, Woodpigeon 5.
We had two visitors to help with the 'watch': Mr.Gosling and from the local R.S.P.B. group Mr Martin Fisher. Mr. Winter and I are grateful for their help and support.
You can see from the attached photos what a great time we had.
Thank-you to everyone involved.

We have used slightly less electricity than last week!!!
Week 1 (one day school was closed)used 1111 units of electricity cost approx £ 66 (if 1 unit is 6p)
Week 2 used 1385 units of electricity cost approx £83 (if 1 unit is 6p)

So.... if you switched a light off when you left the room
turned off the monitor on the computer... good...
You have made the difference.
Now next week keep it up!!!

On Friday 29th January we will be holding a non uniform day. This will be in order to raise funds to purchase a shelter box to be sent to Haiti. The shelter box costs £490.
Children will be able to donate in the following ways:
- £1 donation to wear non uniform ( at least one red or blue item please)
- £1 donation to wear a fun hat (no charge for normal hats!)
We are hoping that you can support us with this appeal. Any additional donations will be gratefully received and a collection box will be in the school reception area.
School Blog-raising opportunity!
Would you like to see your name on our blog for a day? If so we will take donations and I will be only too pleased to put a message onto our school website blog for a day. This could be a family message, business information or simply a good will message. You can download a form from the website HERE and hand it in to the school office in a sealed envelope with your donation.
Thank you for your support.

There are many thousands of people who have been killed, injured and made homeless.
The School Council discussed the tragedy today and decided that we at Moor Hall should try to help those people affected.
We will be trying to raise enough money to send a 'shelter box' emergency kit.
If you go to http://www.shelterbox.org/ you will find out more about the Shelter Box charity.
If we can raise £490 we can send a box which will contain blankets, medicine tents and other emergency aid.
We will tell the children more about how we intend to raise the money at school tomorrow (Friday).
Thank you to the School Council for their prompt action.

This means that we have used 1385 units of electricity in the past week.
We have used more than in the first week of term. This is is probably because there was no snow closure!
Week 1 used 1111 units of electricity cost approx £ 66 (if 1 unit is 6p)
Week 2 used 1385 units of electricity cost approx £83 (if 1 unit is 6p)
We are using a lot of electricity and it costs loads of money.
Can you think of ways that we can reduce our electricity usage at school?
Post a reply with your suggestions.

Please keep an eye on the website as it is a far more reliable means of accessing this information than the local radio.

Moor Hall School has joined the campaign to use 10% less energy by the end of 2010!!!
This morning, the first school day of 2010, the school's electricity meter read 034717.
I will update the blog regularly so you can see how many units of electricity we are using every week.
Remember what I said in assembly this morning, our resolution for the new year should be to use less energy.
Turn off lights you don't need....
Think before you print.....
If we all do our little bit then we can help school save money and help the world look after itself!!
