Transforming the lives of pupils through learning, innovation, inclusion and partnerships
This year Castle Wood School invited Moat House School Council to join us for joint School Council meetings, as it had been so successful last year. This was an opportunity for this year’s Councillors to take part in sharing ideas and discussing what we could do together.
In preparation for the first visit, we met to discuss what they would like to do when Moat House pupils came to visit our school. Jake thought about what happens when people visit his family at home. We say “hello” and he wanted to have “water and squash” Jake helped to sequence the symbols and Beto and Katie gave the plan a `thumbs up`.
On the day, pupils showed their hospitality to our special guests, 4 Year 6 pupils and Miss Hall, while everyone introduced themselves either verbally or by using their photographs. The Councillors from Moat House School had really enjoyed their tour of our School and had particularly liked seeing the sensory garden last year. Jake was keen to show his friends our soft play area. Sheridan thought that the Moat House children would like to see the playground and swimming pool.
Miss Hall had suggested that they could bring some of their games over to play outside together and arrived on the second visit with Connect 4 and other games. As we spent some time exploring the Sensory Garden and the new creative additions from the recent Arts Project, we decided to save the games for another day and arranged to meet again for a session on the playground in the sunshine together.
