Year 5s Busy Week:
On Monday 10th July, our Year 5 school councillors (Mariana, Kevin, Abdi and Brooklyn) visited Castle Wood to discuss ideas about what we should call the shared Forest School site. The nominated names were proposed as a result of both school councils having discussions with the children in their classes – watch this space to find out the final decision. On Tuesday 11th July, three Year 5 children (Aysam, Aria-Noelle and Raluca) travelled to the University of Warwick to represent Moat House at the Pupil Parliament. They worked in groups with other children from across Coventry to discuss things like being safe in our city, their aspirations and opportunities and the barriers to these. The children also had the opportunity to question a group of panellists made up from some of our cabinet members from Coventry City Council, representatives from Health, University of Warwick and from EON. Their questioning was very astute and they were all perfect representatives for Moat House. On Wednesday 12th July, a group of Year 5 children visited Soho Sonic Studios, which is a recording studio in London. The children travelled on an Avanti train from Coventry to Euston and then got to experience the London Underground. During the visit, the children got to record a song in a professional recording studio and were taught about the process of recording and editing a song. They then got to eat their lunch in a board game café. All of the children behaved brilliantly and had an amazing day.
