New Year's Resolutions:   Every year I challenge the children to think of something they could improve at school and at home and adopt these as resolutions. Many have told me that they intend to work more quickly, write more neatly, have a better attitude or be a better friend. I'd like to wish everybody the best of luck with their resolutions. I would hope that you might see the benefit at home too with tidier, more helpful children who argue less with their brothers or sisters. I shared that I aim to practise my guitar more regularly and started at lunchtime, in the dining room, which both I, and the children, enjoyed.


Young Voices: On Wednesday 10th January, some of our children from KS2 participated in a Young Voices concert at the Resorts World Arena in Birmingham. During the show, they sang a range of songs, including hits from the films 'Matilda' and 'Moana' and a medley of music all about walking, to a full audience and with children from lots of other schools. Moat House children were particularly fantastic at singing 'The Moment' and 'Today is going to be a great day'. They were able to work with a conductor, as well as sing and dance alongside some very talented performers, including Drummer Nandi Bushell, who is only 13 years old and dance group Urban Strides. They particularly enjoyed learning to rap with multi award winning Rapper MC Grammar! Everyone had a fantastic day, danced the night away and did Moat House proud!

Joy of Moving in Year 4:        On Tuesday 9th January, Year 4 started a five week programme with Sky Blues in the Community, which is called 'Joy of Movement'.  This week, they learnt what Physical Activity is and they wrote their own definition of this. Then, they conducted a pulse rate experiment to calculate their resting heart and their heart rate after physical activity. After that, they took part in a physical activity session and they thoroughly enjoyed playing scarecrow together. They cannot wait for next week's session! 


Rock Steady:    On Tuesday 9th January, Ben from Rock Steady demonstrated his musical talents by playing some familiar rock, songs using a range of different instruments including the guitar, keyboard and drums. Over the next few weeks, he is going to be working with some of our children to form five of our very own Moat House rock bands! The children will practise playing a chosen instrument and will be ready to perform to us in a special assembly. We can’t wait!
