Last Week's News 14th June 24

Phonics Screening:       In the week beginning 10th June, our Year 1 (and some Year 2) children showed off their amazing reading skills in the national phonic screening assessment. They used their sounds to read real words, as well as nonsense words. They all put in lots of effort and we are very proud of them. Parents will be informed of the results at the end of the school year.


Knife Crime Session:     On Friday 14th June, Year 6 took part in a knife crime awareness workshop, which was run by the West Midlands Police. They discussed some statistics relating to knife crime incidents in The Midlands and explored some scenarios they may face as they get older, where good or bad decisions could be made. As part of the session, they also learnt about the age of criminal responsibility and some of the punishments that could be faced for committing a crime with a knife. The children were very respectful during the session and asked some thoughtful questions. 


RNLI Fundraiser:         On Monday 10th June, we held an assembly all about the good work that the RNLI do to support people who get into trouble in the water. This is a charity that is particularly close to Moat House hearts as there was a tragic incident three years ago on the South coast, involving a. local young man (Callum). Callum was a true hero as he saved several members of his family when they got into difficulty in the water, but unfortunately lost his own life whilst doing so. We would like to thank everyone for supporting us in raising money for the RNLI today by wearing blue non-uniform. You are also very welcome to join Callum’s family and friends on Saturday 13th July from 11am at Pinley Rugby Club, where they will holding an event to raise money for the RNLI.


Year 6 Theatre Visit:    On Friday 7th June, our Year 6 children visited the Leicester Curve as a reward for their hard work during SATs week. They watched a performance of ‘The Boy at the Back of the Class,’ which told the story of a group of friends who meet a young refugee boy, who they are determined to help. The children were all perfectly behaved and thoroughly enjoyed the performance. Because they were so intrigued by the story, some of the children have even started to read the book which the show was based upon!
