Forest Fun and Foundation Stage Info!
It was an exciting day for the children in Year Four today as they took part in another session of Forest Friends out on the green at the front of the school. Miss Chandler challenged the children to take part in a number of activities which all had a running theme of teamwork.The children were challenged to build a den independently that was big enough to fit their whole group inside it and strong enough to stand without support. The children had to apply their best knot tying skills in order to fasten the ropes to the tarpaulin and felt very satisfied with the end results. They also took part in a orienteering challenge as well as creating their own perfumes using natural materials found in the woods.Team work was essential when they were challenged to create their own slide for water to travel down. The creation had to ensure that all of the water poured at one end would successfully make it down to the other without draining away along the way.In the afternoon there was more excitement as Mr B and the team from the Foundation Stage welcomed the parents of our new September 2018 intake. The parents of the new children were welcomed by our Head Boy, Head Girl and House Captains as they entered the site before being given their welcome packs by their new class teachers in the hall. Well done to all of our welcoming children, we are proud of you! Once everyone was settled in their seats, Mr B introduced the parents to a host of key members of the team, ones who the parents would come into contact a lot within their first year at school, and then talked through some of the key bits of information they needed to know about the school. Mr Stanton, our Chair of Governors, was also on hand to introduce himself as was Miss Bennett, our Early Years and KS1 inclusion manager, and Mrs Smoothy, our Pupil Welfare Officer.Three of our lovely PTA committee members explained about some of the opportunities to get involved in fundraising and community events and Mrs Rick talked them through the important forms which we need completed before the children can start school.It was lovely to welcome the new families to our larger Earls Hall family!
Sporting Heroes!
It was another amazingly exciting day for sport in school today as sixty four children from across KS2 represented Earls Hall at this years Borough Sports competition, once again held at Garons.The competition saw our athletes pitted against the top talent from other schools across the borough in group one of the tournament. Competitors from Heycroft, Thorpe Greenways, Chalkwell, Alleyn Court, Fairways, Our Lady of Lourdes and West Leigh took part in a series of track and field events against our team and the standard of the children was high as usual.On the track the children raced against others as individuals and in a series of relays whilst on the field the children threw and jumped their way through the afternoon.As the results of the afternoon were tallied up there was a tense atmosphere. Earls Hall took third place on the field events and second place on the track events. It was then announced that there were only four points between first and second place overall before it was announced that Earls Hall were overall champions! It was a phenomenal achievement, the second year in a row we have won, and testament to the hard work the children have put into training for their various events. Well done to all of the children who took part and represented the school so brilliantly and, of course, to Mr Smith who continues to show such dedication to sport in our school. We are proud of you all!Meanwhile, back in school, the children in both key stages were visited in assembly by the lovely Mrs Guilcher who came to deliver the massive amounts of books the school have purchased with their sponsored reading money. Thank you Mrs Guilcher for coming in to see us and well done to all of the children who took part.After school, in Squirrels, Miss Holmes held another 'Construction Club' which saw the children build and construct a range of models using newspaper and tape, building blocks and Lego.
Eid Assembly!
There was a sense of celebration in the air this morning as the children gathered in both key stage assemblies to hear all about the festival of Eid al Fitr which marks the end of the Ramadan month of fasting. Miss Ellacott and Mrs Cheema explained that Eid officially begins when the moon is sighted, which this year was on Thursday night, and that the word itself means 'happiness'. The children heard how Muslim families gather together to share their favourite foods and wear their very best outfits for the special occasion. Miss Ellacott was then assisted by a host of children who had celebrated the festival with their families at the front of the hall who told the children how they had celebrated and showed off their amazing outfits. Mrs Cheema also wore her Eid outfit and explained to the children about some of the traditions of the festival. Thank you to all of the children who helped make the assembly so special.Later in the day, the downstairs hall was once again throbbing with the sound of music as Phil from the 'Rock Steady' workshop team worked with more children in order to develop their skills on the various instruments in a band setting whilst, down in the Foundation Stage, some children decided to create their own performances for their friends by grabbing the pretend microphones and singing.Outside, in the nature garden, we were once again joined by Miss Drew and Koda the therapy trained dog who came to listen to children from Squirrels read. Thanks, as always, to Miss Drew and Koda for your time.On the field, Mr smith put the children from Beech through their paces on the running track whilst the children in Badgers enjoyed another swimming lesson in the pool and Mr B listened to children from Robins read.
Chase Taster!
It was another busy Monday at Earls Hall. The morning started with Mr B leading the KS1 assembly where he talked to the children about how, with it being the last half term of the year, they had all matured in lots of ways and were now nearly ready to make the move into their next year group. He then talked to the children about how, as role models, they could think of the types of qualities they should show our up and coming Foundation Stage children as they visit us from their pre-schools over the coming weeks. The children worked with talk partners to identify lots of qualities that are important to have as an Earls Hall child including being kind, friendly, safe, mature, honest and hard working. They then thought of ways in which they could display these qualities so that the pre-school children could see them.Later, in the KS2 assembly, Mr Brasted talked to the children about being adventurous and how reading can influence and inspire, using the escapades of Patrick Leigh Farmer as an example. Mr Brasted described how Patrick walked across Europe many years ago and how, when he was younger, he had read about Patrick and this had inspired him to travel across Europe himself, meeting lots of interesting and generous people along the way. He ended the assembly by encouraging the children to be adventurous and read  because you never know where a book might take you.It was a busy and exciting day for the children in Year Five as they spent the day at Chase High experiencing life as a secondary pupil. Throughout the day the children all had the chance to mix with older pupils and take part in a variety of lessons. All of the children had the chance to visit the sports areas of the school, taking part in a PE session, and at lunchtime were even entertained by some of the pupils. It was a  highly enjoyable day and the children returned to school full of enthusiasm for the next stage in their educational journey. Thank you to everyone at Chase High School for organising such a great day.
Thinking Green!
The whole school was awash with the colour green today as the children and staff showed their support for the work of our 'Green Team'.  Our 'Green Team' meets regularly with Miss Neal and has representatives from Years Two to Six at each meeting. Their aim is to improve the environment, on a small scale by making the school a greener place and on a larger scale by making the children more aware of environmental issues which impact the whole planet.Our 'Think Green Day' was completely organised by the children themselves and saw the whole school taking part in their suggested activities.Each class was treated to a presentation about the work of the 'Green Team' as well as a video about the impact of plastic on the environment. Well done to all of the children who delivered the presentations to their peers, we are proud of you.The Green Team will then asked the children in their class to make a pledge to not drop litter or if they see it, to pick it up at school, around school or in their street if it is safe to do so. Pledges will be placed inside a class plastic bottle. The twenty one bottles will be joined together to make a chain and tied to the fence at the bottom of the field.The Green Team also encouraged the children in their class to join in “The Great Litter Pick Up” at home. Children are to take a before and after photo or a photo of them litter picking. Send the photo to school with the name of the street or area they picked litter up from. The photos will be put on display in school.As part of the day the children embraced the Scandinavian trend for picking up litter while jogging by 'plogging' on the field. The field was adorned with paper and plastic litter and the children were  given five minutes to see how much litter they could pick up in pairs. The winner was the pair who picked up and collected the most points. It was an exhausting activity but one which helped spread the message that littering is not a good choice!There was also excitement on the front garden as Mrs Smith and a group of children released a host of butterflies into the garden which they had been monitoring the development of in the nurture room each day. 
AOK Church Clean Up!
It was another busy day in school and one where the children were looking particularly smart! Throughout the day all of the classes lined up in the upstairs hall in order to take part in class photo sessions, giving their best smiles for the photographer. In the afternoon our sports teams also had their photographs taken, this year wearing their smart sports kits provided by the PTA. Well done for sending the children into school looking so wonderful.There was more PTA action throughout the morning as a group of parents manned the Fathers Day Sale which took place in the community room. The children had the opportunity to purchase gifts for their Dad, or other special men in their lives, with prices starting at just £1. the sale continues tomorrow so if anyone wants to take advantage of it, please send the children in with money in a named envelope marked 'Fathers Day Sale'.In the morning the children in Year Five took part in 'Kinder Move Workshops' where the team from Southend United organised a practical game of handball where the children had to work as a team to think about making spaces. They then followed up the session with a lesson back in the classroom about the purpose of skeletons.The day saw a group of children from KS2 represent the school at this years Essex finals for rounders. In our group we beat Great Totham, 8.5-6, and then beat Elmstead Primary 8-3.5. The team then played The Warren who they beat 5.5-4. In the semi final the team lost to St Marys from Brentwood, the same team we lost against next year, and so despite a great effort the team narrowly missed out on going through to the national finals. Well done to all of the children who represented the school, we are proud of you.In the afternoon Mr B was joined by a group of children from Foxes who took part in our latest 'AOK Club' mission, The act of kindness today saw the children walk down to Earls Hall Baptist Church where they polished, dusted, tidied and hoovered the main hall. The children worked as a team to make sure that the church sparkled and Katie had never seen such enthusiastic polishing! Mr B was very proud to present the children with their special badges. Well done children, we are proud of you!The communal area by the main reception was full of readers throughout the day as the children in Owls and Badgers enjoyed a library session and then was also used as a meeting point for Year Five children and parents at the end of the afternoon. The parents were able to visit representatives from St Thomas More High School who came along to talk to them about the school and hand out prospectuses. All of the boys chosen to assist at the session were former Earls Hall pupils and it was lovely to see them all again looking so happy and mature. Thank you to the staff and to the boys for their time.
Smashing Singing and Cracking Cricket!
It was a proud day for the school, both in terms of music and sport. The day saw two teams of children from KS2 represent the school at the Southend inter-schools cricket competition.It was a wonderful day for cricket in terms of weather, team spirit, co-operation and sportsmanship. In the morning our girls team beat West-Leigh and then beat Prince Avenue in the quarter-final before being pitted against the team from Temple Sutton in the semi-final and winning. The final saw the team play against Bournes Green  and it was a nail biting finish but with some outstanding fielding our girls won by eleven runs making them Southend champions! The girls will now go on to play in the Essex finals on Monday in Billericay.The boys were a credit to themselves and the school in the afternoon. They played against Thorpe Hall and Fairways, both matches were tightly fought, however Earls Hall won both matches and won their group. In the quarter finals against Heycroft, it was again a thrilling and nail biting match with sixes and fours being scored and catches being taken.   The opposition had to score one run of the last ball which they did so meaning Earls Hall lost the quarter final by just one run. They went on to play a friendly match and secured a victory over West Leigh. Well done to all of the children who represented the school, we are proud of you!Meanwhile, back in school, the children in Year Two were given a challenge in their 'Forest Friends' sessions. Traction Man, who they have been learning about in class, had found himself stuck in various tricky places around the woods and the children had to work in teams to design ways to rescue him.In the evening the Cliffs Pavilion played host to this years South East Essex Schools Music Association music festival for KS2. Our choir sang alongside children from a wide range of other schools and sang beautifully to the delight of proud parents, other family members and staff. Our timbrel group, the only one of its kind in Southend, also dazzled the audience with a performance. Well done to all of the children who represented the school, we are proud of you!

Super Science Day!
The children in all year groups today spent the day enjoying a fun and fabulous day of tests and experiments as they took part in a full day of Science!The morning saw both assemblies being led by Mrs Bowden and Mrs Matteuicci as they introduced the theme of the day by identifying inspirational scientists before all of the classes got to work!In the Foundation Stage the children made their own exploding volcanoes by mixing bicarbonate of soda and vinegar and adding red paint for it to look like lava. They discussed making prediction first, then afterwards spoke about the chemical reaction which the children loved seeing taking place! They also worked with pipettes to drip two colours onto blotting paper and predicted what colour the two would make when mixed. The third activity saw the children take part in a balloon challenge to make a balloon move along string using only a straw and tape. They looked at how to inflate a balloon and talked about where the air comes from.  Then they worked in small groups to thread straw onto string, tape balloon then let it go. There was lots of discussions about why the balloon moved...air escaping and pushing the balloon forward, and why some worked better than others. The children realised that the more air that was in the balloon, the further it would travel. Some children stuck the balloon to the string and realsied this was why theirs didn't work so there was lots of perseverance, patience and team work on display!In Year One the children found some treasure from Pirate Pete and they had to investigate what would happen if it was to get wet. The treasure was a handful of skittles and  the children worked with talk partners to make predictions before conducting the experiment. They covered them with water and watched with amazement what happened as the colour ran from the shell of the sweets into the water. They made observations and created a floorbook about their findings before thinking of materials that they could use to try and keep the treasure dry. They then found some 'm n  m's' and predicted what would happen to them when submerged in water and were amazed when the shell came off and they were left with lots of floating 'ms'! The third challenge saw the children use their 'Forest Friends' sessions to try and find out whether the largest kites flew the highest.Meanwhile, in Year Two, the children had enormous amounts of fun making plastercine boats and seeing whether the shape of the boat made it float or sink in water whilst the second experiment saw them challenged to try and protect an egg when it fell off a cliff. The children were able to use whatever materials they liked in order to ensure that the egg didn't crack when falling from a great height and set to work in teams with great levels of enthusiasm.  The third experiment saw the children make a fantastic glitter tornado using water, washing up liquid and, of course, glitter!In Year Three the children used their homework challenges to see whose vehicle could travel the furthest. The year group kept a record of the distance the vehicles travelled with some moving as far as over eight metres whilst they also made their own catapults to try and see how far the force of the elastic could sling a table tennis ball. The third experiment saw the children making their own lava lamps in a cup, adding different amounts of oil and sprinkling different substances to see if they got the same reaction each time.In Year Four the children investigated how eyes see colour by finding shades of green around the school and mixing shades of green with yellow and blue brusho dye. The second experiment saw the children constructing their own paper gliders and learning how air currents lifted the gigantic planes out on the field! the third experiment saw the children take  part in a chemistry investigation by mixing bicarbonate of soda with vinegar in a bottle and trapping the gas by popping a balloon on the top of the bottle in order to inflate it.The children in Year Five focused on solids, liquids and gases with the first experiment being centred around the children making lots of gloop! The children used corn flour and water, mixed with food colouring, to make the gloop and then investigated how the pressure applied made the liquid turn instantly to a solid. The second activity saw the children making wind vanes and investigating the direction of the wind whilst the third activity saw the children making their own fire extinguishers and investigating how flames need oxygen in order to stay alight.In Year Six the children were challenged to make their own paper planes in order to investigate air resistance, aerodynamics and surface area by making them in a variety of sizes and shapes before testing how far well they flew. They were also challenged to use just four pieces of newspaper and a small amount of selotape to see who could make the strongest bridge.At the end of the afternoon each class linked up with another from the opposite key stage so that our oldest and youngest children could share their experiments and talk about the learning which had taken place throughout what was a fantastic day.Meanwhile, throughout the day, Mr B was also lucky enough to hear a host of children read in his office and Mrs Warren-Hardy served up a delicious chicken lunch. Mr B was joined at the round table by a group of children from Year Two who were displaying excellent manners in the dining hall.After school the teachers were joined by Mr Potticary from the local authority who delivered a training session about fire evacuation sledges. The sledges ensure that anyone who was unable to use the stairs in the event of a fire could be safely taken out of the building, via the stairs, and form part of our fire evacuation plan. The staff took turns to use the sledges in order to ensure that they would all know how to safely use them in the event of a fire. 
Sarcophagus & Sealife!
It was an exciting start to a new week at Earls Hall today for the children in Year Three and Foundation Stage as they took part in two curriculum enrichment activities, one in school and one off site.The children in Year Three spent the day investigating Ancient Egypt with the help of the team from 'Portals from the Past'. The children and staff had all come to school dressed in an array of magnificent costumes; either as Egyptians or as Archaeologists. Their day began with them finding out some facts about the time of the Pharaohs in Egypt, both as a group in the hall and in their classes back in the classroom, and then after playtime they took part in a carousel of activities. They studied a variety of ancient artefacts, took part in an Egyptian quiz and played a game called 'Hounds'.In the afternoon the children learnt all about the process of mummification and saw first hand how the organs were removed and how the bodies were preserved. They investigated the ceremony of the priestesses and found out which special items became buried in the tomb.  The day ended playing a hunting game throwing javelins at various animals collecting points to demonstrate how hippos, crocodiles and ducks were all hunted during Ancient Egyptian times. It was a fantastic day which all of the children enjoyed. Thanks to the PTA for funding the day and to all of the parents for supporting the fun by sending the children to school dressed in such wonderful costumes!Meanwhile, down at the seafront, the children in the Foundation Stage took part in a school trip which saw them taking part in activities at the 'Sea Life Adventure Aquarium' and the beach itself. On the beach the children worked with Mrs Mellish and miss Chandler to take part in a series of 'Beach School' activities which included creating beach works of art through sculpting the sand and arranging shells, seaweed and other natural objects they found and searching for small creatures such as crabs. They also investigated how the beach can be polluted by waste materials, such as plastic, by people when they visit the area.At the 'Sea Life Adventure Aquarium' the children were challenged to identify a series of creatures and find out facts about them whilst visiting the various tanks on display. They also enjoyed visiting the tortoises and meerkats in their dry enclosures and were challenged to remember as many facts from the day to continue their learning back in school. It was a fun day which saw the children all behave beautifully. Thanks to all of the parents who gave their time to come along and help on the day.In the evening the downstairs hall played host to our annual 'Secondary Showcase' event which saw representatives from local secondary schools come along to chat with parents and children from Year Five about the provision they can offer in KS3. Thanks to everyone who made it along; both parents and representatives of the schools.
