School Council Visit: On Wednesday 7th February, our School Council were lucky enough to visit the Council House in the city centre. They met the Deputy Lord Mayor who answered lots of questions about her role and gave them a tour of the special rooms in the Council House. The children were fascinated by the chambers and were even allowed to visit the Lord Mayor’s office and sit on his special seat, which we’ve never been allowed to do before! The children had a wonderful time and were all perfectly behaved! 


Read Write Inc: On Wednesday 7th February, we welcomed our Reception parents in to school to find out how we teach phonics at Moat House, using Read Write Inc. They also enjoyed observing their own children participating in their phonics lesson. Please can you support your children with their reading at home, especially during the holidays. Thank you.


Mood Boost Workshop: On Monday 5th February, Year 3 took part in a 'Mood Boost' workshop led by Coventry Mental Health in Schools. The children spent the afternoon learning about what low mood is and what the signs of low mood can be, such as eating or sleeping more or less than usual and losing interest in things they would normally enjoy. They then thought about ways in which they can boost their mood and took part in some activities - including some fun games - to see how they felt afterwards. They learned that the five steps to mental wellbeing are to: take notice, keep learning, be active, connect and give. The children participated fantastically during the session and agreed that they had learned some extremely useful mood boosting skills.
