Moorhens thought they could make better use out of the unused decking area.
Staff came in at half term to clean the decking area and picnic bench.
Is this the next Guinness record?
Moorhens hope the children have many happy hours in the playhouse.
Moorhens children had a lovely surprise when they came into Moorhens on Tuesday afternoon. We kept the blinds closed for a while to make sure all children had their toast before the big reveal. As you can see from the photo's, all the children piled into the playhouse and were so excited about what they had got to play with at Moorhens. Happy hours followed with drinks outside on the patio area, playing house and finally pretend sleepovers.
A questionnaire has been sent out with children in relation to Moorhens and the Extending School Clubs. Could we kindly ask parents to complete and return all forms to either Moorhens or the school office, by Friday 28th June.
Come and join us in The Mall, Sutton Coldfield from 9 a.m. until 5.30 p.m.
From Foundation Stage to Year 6, the children have been engaged in the production of distinctive pieces of art work from silk painting to photographic prints. Originial art work from just £2.50.
Professional framing is available at an additional cost. Just look how good this art work looks...
Over the past weeks Mrs. Glare's 'Bird Club' have been working towards their RSPB Wildlife Awards, making bird food, hedgehog boxes, raising funds, visiting a reserve, recycling and collecting litter.
The first stage awards are Bronze: well done to all the children who have achieved this Award. In assembly today Mr.Martin Fisher from the RSPB. presented their certificates along with stickers and a badge.We are very proud of our achievements. Kate achieved the award too - we're sorry she missed the assembly.
Moorhens and the Extended School clubs had a compitition for the children to design a stamp to commemorate the forthcoming birth of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridges baby.
We had lots of entries for the competition and Miss Jones found it quite hard to decide on just two winners due to such a high calibre of designs sent in.
The winner of the Junior competition was Elley Criddle age 11, who designed a union jack baby carriage.
The winner of the infants was Sophie Matthewson age 5, who designed the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge with their new baby in a cradle.
Both girls received a £10 book voucher and their entries will be sent off to the palace.
All children who entered received a certificate in taking part.
A big thank you and well done to all the children who entered. You all did a fantastic job and hope to see your entries again in any future competitions we have at Moorhens.
Today Class 4 spent the whole day at Kingsbury Water Park. The children built shelters, went mini-beast hunting, pond dipping, had a ride on the Echills Wood Railway and finished the day with baked potatoes and marshmallows cooked on an open fire.
We returned to school at 7.30- What a fab day.
I would like to compliment the children on their excellent behaviour and attitude throughout the day.
Can I also thank all the adults who helped throughout the day- making it memorable for us all.
Here are a few photos to show you a little of our day.

There are lots more photos. I'll sort more out for you soon.
By the way, the photos of the train ride aren't on my camera so they will have to wait for another day! (sorry Charlie)
