The Year 1 Sculpture project with Pete Moorhouse gave the children a unique and hugely rewarding learning experience. The children were able to drive the project from the outset and their ideas were fully incorporated into the final design. Pete linked really effectively with the teaching team, the leadership team and the parents. The children had the opportunity to explore, plan and design and create a fantastic sculpture. They were given the opportunity to develop skills and knowledge across the learning areas. Pete made really meaningful ICT links, including a blog, to develop and extend the project. They have shaped their learning environment and improved the play space significantly. We have had enormously positive feedback from parents, staff and visitors alike. We are delighted to recommend Pete Moorhouse as an outstanding practitioner who is able to engage effectively with early years pupils.
