The middle of the week at Earls Hall saw the day start with the children in Years One and Two taking part in a 'Letters & Sounds' demonstration for their parents and other family members. The children demonstrated how to blend and segment a series of words and writing short sentences on whiteboards. The session was repeated at the end of the day. Thanks to everyone who made it along.Later in the afternoon, the children from Year Three dazzled a host of parents and other family members as they performed a special 'Harvest Assembly' in the upstairs hall. The children spoke clearly  and sang their way through the assembly which focused on how we are grateful for the food we have whilst thinking of those less fortunate than ourselves. It was a brilliant assembly, well done to all of the children for taking part. Afterwards the PTA served cakes and drinks in the downstairs communal area, raising over £60 for school funds. Thanks to everyone for your time.After school a group of children represented the school at the first inter-schools carpet bowls competition held at Prittlewell bowls club. The team played against Westborough School and showed great teamwork skills throughout the match. It was a great competition which saw Earls Hall triumph with a score of 9-7!

Hockey & Homes!
The week in school continued to be a busy one. The children in KS2 used their assembly time to think about the schools up and coming 80th anniversary celebrations. Mrs Matteucci gave the children an insight into the history of the school and even explained how both herself and Mrs Creak are former pupils themselves! The assembly helped prepare the children for the week of celebrations taking place in school when we return from the half term break.Later in the day the children in Year One were reading sentences and learning to spot finger spaces. They had to read a sentence and chop the sentence up every time they saw a finger space. Afterwards they had to copy out the sentence below using the correct letter formation.Meanwhile, out on the playground, the children in Aspen worked with Mr Smith in order to develop their hockey skills whilst the children in 6MC continued to create their shelters inspired by their class text; 'Kensukes Kingdom'.

The sessions take  place for all children in the classes throughout the week at various times.
Frames & Fire Breathing Dragons!
The new week in school saw the children in KS2 come together in assembly to hear about the Southend Foodbank and the work the organisation does in our community. The children thought about the feelings they would experience of they were hungry and were not sure how they would secure their next meal before discussing how if each person in school donated just one tin or packet of food for the harvest collection on Friday we would, as a school, be able to support the work of the organisation and help those in our community who need the food.Later in the day the children in Year Two continued to be creative as they worked together in classes in order to begin creating giant fire breathing dragons out of cardboard, tin foil, paint and tissue paper.The creativity continued in Year five as the children used their class text 'the Witches' in order to create framed pictures of their own witches. the children created electrical circuits which included a lit bulb and a switch to light the frame.In Year Four the children continued to work on their underwater felt creatures whilst the children in the Foundation Stage used the 'Forest Friends' area to explore signs of Autumn.

Well done to all of this weeks recipients, we are proud of you. In the assemblies the teachers added up the house points which are awarded for positive behaviour to children from Years One to Six.

The front of the school was a hive of Hogwarts activity today as the children from Year Three took part in a range of Harry Potter inspired 'Forest Friends' activities! The children made wands and flying broomsticks, using vegetable peelers to whittle away the wood and bark on sticks and branches. They made lots of potions by foraging for natural objects such as grass, leaves and soil and made dragon traps on a large scale by tying a host of knots in groups. There was plenty of opportunity to explore some of their favourite areas of the forest such as the rope swing and the mud kitchen and a great time was had by all!Meanwhile, the morning started with a singing assembly for the children in KS1 where the children sang along with Mr B and his guitar. Later the children in the Foundation Stage enjoyed a numbertime session whilst the children in Year Two continued to learn through a castle theme, making their own three dimensional castle pictures out of card and collage.Throughout the day the children in Sycamore made a big fuss of the lovely Mrs Ludman, nee Brooker, as she celebrated her thirtieth birthday. At lunchtime Mrs Ludlam was presented with flowers by the rest of the team. Happy Birthday Mrs Ludlam!
30 Years of Mrs Russell!
It was a day to celebrate at Earls Hall today as we marked thirty glorious years of the lovely Mrs Russell being part of the team!

Over the years she has worked under three Headteachers; Mrs Hoskings, Mrs Foster and Mr B as well as thousands of children.

Sewing & Sawing!
The school was a hive of activity today as the children took part in science experiments and design technology lessons.The children in Year Two have been reading the book 'Paper Bag Princess' and today were challenged to try and find an alternative material for her to wear that would be waterproof in rainy weather. The children studied a range of materials, including cloth, cling film, tin foil and cardboard. They predicted which ones they thought would be the most waterproof and then tested their theories by placing the materials over a beaker and dropping water on them to see which allowed the most water through.At lunchtime a range of teachers enjoyed a roast dinner with the children over in the newly renamed 'Woodland Diner' where children who demonstrated excellent manners were chosen to sit at the centre table. Well done to the children identified today, we are proud of you.In the afternoon the children in 6J continued to study Kensukes Kingdom and began making their own wooden shelters. They worked in pairs to measure and cut wood in centimetres in order to construct their shelters. Meanwhile the children in Aspen worked with Mr Smith on the playground in order to develop their hockey skills.  In the central learning area by the office, Mr B enjoyed a game of 'Follow' with James from Year Six. James taught Mr B how to play the board game which was designed by his Dad. Well done James for showing such patience with Mr B!
AOK Club Returns!
It was a great start to the week at Earls Hall. The morning started with the children in KS1 enjoying the joys of singing in assembly. Mr B got out his trusty guitar and the children sang 'Clap Your Hands, Wiggle Your Feet'; a song all about spreading love around. Volunteers were chosen from the hall to help Mrs Fraser lead actions whilst singing.Later in the day all of the children from the Foundation Stage enjoyed both a'Forest Friends' and library session whilst the children in Elm continued to create their own underwater creature out of felt by stitching their designs.In the afternoon Mr B and Mrs Burrell took a group of children from Beech out of school for the first 'AOK Club' mission of the year. The children visited Fairview Residential Home, just round the corner from school, where they played games with the residents, completed colouring pages alongside them and read passages from their reading books to them. It was a fantastic first mission which saw the children all behave impeccably throughout the afternoon. Mr B was extremely proud to present the children with their special badges in recognition of their kindness when they returned to school. Well done children, we are proud of you.After school Mr Dorn was joined by a team of children as they took part in a friendly table tennis tournament against a team from Chalkwell Junior School. The teams were made up of children who are not members of table tennis schools but are keen players and great fun was had by all. Earls Hall won the tournament. Well done to all of the children who took part, we are proud of you.

The members discussed various possibilities before deciding on 'The Woodland Diner'.Later in the morning the weeks learning ambassadors met with Mrs Wilson, one of our school governors, and talked to her about the learning which had taken place in their respective classes since Monday.
