Rewards & Runners!
It was a great end to the week today as the children spent time celebrating achievements in the usual weekly 'Celebration Assemblies'. In the assemblies Mr B presented the weeks 'Earls Hall  Stars' certificates downstairs whilst Mr Geach did the same upstairs. Children were also rewarded for their times tables efforts as well as for their achievements in their reading races. Mrs Robinson took some time to explain to the children all about the recent chess championship and presented all the final players with certificates before Vincent was given the trophy to mark his achievement as overall champion.Later in the day the children in the Foundation Stage classes visited our swimming pool for the first time in order to familiarise themselves with it before they take part in their first lessons next week. The teachers showed them the changing rooms and demonstrated the depth to reassure them that it wasn't too deep.Meanwhile, away from school, Mr smith accompanied a group of children who were taking part in the Essex cross country finals. The children took part due to the fact that they had been placed so highly in the Southend competition and today saw them run brilliantly, all finishing highly out of 130 runners. Well done to all of the children who took part, and a particular well done to Jack and Zoe who came second and third. We are proud of you all!Back in school the children in Rabbits used the laptops to create pictures of boats whilst the children in Squirrels made their own boats out of paper. After school music was in the air as Mrs Bowden hosted her KS1 choir club whilst Mr B sand with children from the Foundation Stage with his guitar.

It was quite an artistic day at Earls Hall today. The children in Elm used classical music to express images it conjured up in their imagination which they then represented using paints whilst the children in Willow investigated shades and tints of colours by mixing them with white and black to create a spectrum of colours either tinted or shaded.Over in the hen house Mrs Townsend took a group of children from Year One to visit Melody and Pickles, our school chickens, and the children had great fun feeding them sweetcorn and cuddling them.The sundshine once again ensured that lunchtime was a fun time as the children took to the field to play. There were games of football for both KS1 and KS2 whilst lots of children of all ages enjoyed climbing on the equipment. Mrs Warren Hardy served up a delicious roast dinner and Mr B was joined by a group of children who he had spotted demonstrating excellent midday manners.In the afternoon the children in Kestrels enjoyed a tennis lesson in PE whilst the Foundation Stage children continued to count in twos in their 'Marvellous Maths' session. Mr B was also lucky enough to hear a number of children read from Robins and the children were rewarded with one of his very special stickers as a reward for their efforts.Later on a group of children from Kestrels took part in our latest 'AOK Club' mission which saw them take to the streets to rid the pavements of litter. The children worked as a team, using the pickers, to fill up half a black sack of rubbish and Mr B was delighted to present them with their special badges back in school.After school Miss Scarlett and Mrs Marshall hosted their first Art Club for the children in the Foundation Stage where the children made a range of giant feathers by decorating paper which will be used to create further pieces of large art next week.
Brilliant Beaches!
It was another glorious day at Earls Hall as the sun shone down upon the children as they took part in their learning, many of whom were outside.The morning started with Mrs Howard leading the KS2 assembly where she told the children all about her recent trip to South Africa where she linked up our school with Ekendal Primary School in Kraaifontein, Cape Town . Mrs Howard detailed the everyday loves of the children who attend the school and highlighted similarities and differences between the setting and Earls Hall. The children identified ways which we could establish greater links which included writing letters, sharing work and linking via webcams. Mrs Howard explained that the school in Cape Town faced challenges as they were not lucky enough to have the same amount of equipment as Earls Hall and some of the children suggested fundraising to help them purchase resources.Throughout the day the children in Year Two enjoyed their 'Forest Friends' sessions which saw them using shells, sand and other resources foraged in the woods to create some spectacular seaside and beach pictures. They also had fun making their own kites which they tested on the green!Meanwhile, in the Foundation Stage, our youngest children had a busy day. They all took part in their daily 'Letters & Sounds' sessions where they blended and segmented words and wrote their own words and sentences on whiteboards. Later in the day the children continued to be inspired by the beach hook from the beginning of the week and as a result played with sea and beach creatures in the builders trays, investigated water, made their own ships out of junk material which they then tested to see if they floated, drew their own treasure maps and then used them to seek out the treasure. In the afternoon they children counted in twos and ordered numbers and identified their place value as part of their daily 'Marvellous Maths' session.Upstairs the children in Beech identified the range of languages within our school and found out how many ways they could introduce themselves in them whilst in Kites the children used scales to estimate and measure the weight of various foods. In 6J the children designed their Tudor masks whilst the children in Hawks enjoyed a fun PE lesson in the hall. In the staffroom the teachers from Year Two were joined by colleagues from Chalkwell Infants and West Leigh Infants to moderate examples of Maths and share ideas.
Wonderful Weather!
It was a lovely day at Earls Hall today. The morning started with Mrs Bowden leading the children in KS1 through another singing assembly and later on Mrs Joyce took assembly in KS2 where she focused on the achievements of the commonwealth games.Later in the morning the children in Year Three wrote acrostic poems about different types of weather and were then challenged to perform them using different types of expression. The children worked in groups and performed their work beautifully!In Year Two the children were learning about how seeds disperse by making their own paper versions and testing them to see them fall and land on the ground having spun through the air.At lunchtime the beautiful weather meant that the children enjoyed the full use of the field, including the climbing equipment, and Mr smith led a game of rounders whilst Mrs Warren-Hardy served up her delicious sausages. As usual Mr B was joined by a group of children at the round table who had been spotted demonstrating excellent midday manners.In the afternoon Mr B enjoyed listening to readers in his office from Dormice before Mrs Smoothy hosted her KS1 girls football club where the children demonstrated some great foot work!
Art Attack!
It was an artistic start to the new term for the children in Foundation Stage and KS1 as they took part in a challenge to create giant works of art! The morning started with Mr B explaining that, although he had enjoyed a lovely Easter break, he had been unable to make it down to visit the beach. He challenged the children to make their own beaches on the playground in a giant 'Art Attack' using only material and objects that they could find around the school. He then showed them some examples of giant art works on the big screen before they set off back to their classrooms to plan their work.Out on the playground the children set to work to create beaches, sea and seaside accessories whilst Mr B took pictures and films of their work from an aerial perspective high in the air on a cherry picker. The finished pieces of art were a real triumph and showed that the children worked well as teams.Meanwhile, back inside, the children in Hawks investigated historical pieces of music and accompanied them with percussion instruments before being treated to a jusical performance by their very own Mr Cann on his mandolin. Meanwhile in Kestrels the children investigated healthy lifestyles whilst in 6S the children designed their very own Tudor masks.
Bunny & Birthdays!
It was an eventful end to the week, and indeed term, at Earls Hall.The morning started with the children in Aspen being surprised by the Easter Bunny as they enjoyed breakfast. Our floppy eared friend presented Mr Brasted with eggs for each and every child before hopping away and leaving the class to their adventures which included the exciting mud slide!Back in school there was a surprise in store for Mr B as he arrived back at Earls Hall having slept at Wat Tyler. As it is Mr B's 40th birthday in the Easter holidays the children and staff in Foundation and KS1 surprised him by throwing him a special 'This is your Life' assembly!All the children had made hats that they thought Mr B would like which were mainly themed around Dr Who, cake and Christmas and there were special guests who appeared including people he had loved working with such as Miss McGaw, Mrs Weidner, Mrs Bass, Mrs Brown and even Mrs Dellow and Mrs Hunter as well as his very own Mum and Dad. Mr Geach led the assembly where he shared clips of Mr B as a child with the children before they presented him with a very special card.  It was a smashing surprise, thank you to everyone who made such a special effort.In the afternoon there was more excitement as the Easter Bunny made his annual appearance and visited all of the classes. Assisted by Mrs Rick and Mrs Haynes, the bunny gave eggs to al of the children before hopping away for another year. Thank you to the PTA for supplying our fluffy tailed friend with the eggs.
WWII, Wat Tyler & Wonderful Performance!
The week continued to be a busy one as there was plenty of activity both at Earls Hall and off site.The children in Elm class had a great time at the Wat Tyler Country Park. At the park they took part in team games where they were challenged to achieve targets as a group using key communication skills with Martin from the education centre.Later in the day the children helped prepare the meals that they ate as well as undertaking key jobs to keep the residential centre tidy such as hoovering and wiping tables.Back in school the children in Year Six came to school as evacuees as they travelled back in time in order to spend the day experiencing WWII. As part of the day the children made their own dishes of Woolton Pie which was a commonly made meal made predominantly out of vegetables which could have been grown in the garden. Thanks to all of our families for supporting the day and sending the children into school looking the part,In the afternoon and evening the children in Year Five took to the stage in the upstairs hall in order to tell the Easter Story with a modern take. The children acted, sang and danced their way through the show brilliantly and made everyone proud! Well done children, we are proud of you!
Delightful Dinner!
There was an air of excitement over in the dining hall today as the team in the kitchen served up an incredibly special lunch!Our recent 'Design a Dinner' competition saw tens of dozens of children enter recipes with the chance of having their meal cooked and served to the rest of the school. After much cogetation and deliberation Mrs Warren-Hardy chose a recipe of 'Sausage & Beans Pie' served with peas or sweetcorn which was entered by William from Year Three.This morning William joined the team over in the kitchen to oversee the preparation of the meal and added the finishing touches before popping it in the oven to cook.At lunchtime he was joined by his parents, Mrs Howard, Mr B and Mr Genovese- school governor for Year Three- who were all delighted to sample the meal. The children in the dining hall gave William a huge round of applause for his efforts, with many of them giving him a thumbs up and lots of positive feedback. Well done William, we are proud of you. All the children who entered the competition will be presented with a certifciate in recognition of their efforts in 'Celebration Assembly' on Friday.Meanwhile, in Beech Class, the final of the school chess championship continued as the Schofield brothers battled it out for the title of chess player of the year. The end of the first game was a stalemate, but in the second game Vincent was crowned champion. Well done boys for a highly enjoyable game, we are proud of you.
