Autumn Term 1 2023 - Grand Designs Competition
At Moorhens we entered the Grand Designs competition. Children designed their own houses and the focus was to think about the environmental and eco-friendly aspects of their build.
At the Grand Designs Live at the NEC, Kevin McCloud discussed the children's houses in detail and chose a winner. Please visit our Twitter page, whereby you can see lots of the houses and the videos with Kevin McCloud and the winner's house.
Well done to all the children who took part.

Autumn Term 2 - Birthdays and Christmas
This term our topics were Birthdays and Christmas. All children added their names and birthday dates onto cut out balloon shapes, which they then added to the wall display. They also made a house out of cardboard, to which real balloons were added above. This made the house look like it was flying in the air.
KS1 learnt about friendship and what the key to friendship means. A couple of quotes have been added by the children.
EYFS children made a lovely colourful display of winter hats and gloves. They enjoyed having fun with glitter and sequins.
The Moor Hall Child is a confident and achieving child, who learns about the world around them and includes all in their friendships and celebrations.
Autumn Term 1 - Settling in
EYFS children spent time collecting leaves before painting and printing them onto paper. This was a great social activity where children got to know one another and shared ideas and stories.
Year 1 children decorated yummy cakes and as you can see on their faces, they had a fabulous time and couldn't wait to eat them.
Year 2 Made some spectacular fireworks out of cardboard rolls to go on display. KS2 made a sea night scene for our display and added a fantastic lighthouse to shine out onto the fish trawler catching a large haul of fish
