Fab Final Day!
It was a busy, and at times emotional, final day of the school year today and the day which saw us say a fond farewell to our  lovely Year Six pupils.The morning started with the team in school being showered with gifts from the children. The whole team would like to say a massive thank you to everyone for their generosity.Miss Brooker was surprised when she entered her classroom as the children in Sycamore covered her in masses of confetti and popped a veil on her head as a way of celebrating her up and coming nuptials in the Summer holidays, Congratulations Miss Brooker, we hope that you have an amazing day!Later in the morning our simultaneous 'Celebration Assemblies' saw us congratulate our 'Earls Hall Stars' for individual achievements as well as announce the Green Team Challenge winners and runners up for each year group. In the upstairs assembly Mr B told the Year Six children how proud the whole team in school are of them and each class in the year group took a bow as the rest of the children gave them a round of applause. At the end of the assembly the year group sang 'A Whole New World'. There was also much excitement as the total  number of tallies for each house was announced, with the winning house receiving an additional playtime. Well done to the children in Norfolk!At lunchtime the grand final of the school table tennis tournament took place in the hall, overseen by Mr Smith, and the battle of the finalists drew quite a crowd. Jack won his runner up game, as did Noah, making him champion! Well done to all of the children who took part in the competition, we are proud of you, and a special well done to the champion Noah!The afternoon was a fun one for the KS1 classes, as they enjoyed their end of year parties, and an emotional one for the Year Six classes as they spent time signing each others shirts and autograph books. It was a smashing end to their time at Earls Hall. We have been so proud to work with such a lovely year group and know that they all have bright futures ahead of them!
Awards & Retirements!
It was a special day at school today for many different reasons. The morning saw us greet Kirk Edwards from the Southend Primary Sports Association who came to join us for assembly. Kirk spends the end of term visiting schools from across the borough in order to present them with sporting awards. The awards are few and far between so to be visited once again is quite an honour.The first award was presented for 'Team of the Year' and Kirk explained that it was awarded in recognition of the fact that the team won in Southend, Essex, the regional finals and the South East before going on to the national finals and coming second and fourth. Our table tennis team was judged to be the best team in Southend out of all the many, many teams and we could not have been more proud as they were presented with their trophies.Next, Kirk explained that there were ten awards for the whole of the borough, five girls and five boys, and that two of them were to be presented to pupils from Earls Hall. The winners had to have been successful in a wide range of sports and so the children were delighted when Kayleen and Connor were recognised for all of their hard work in sport.Kirk then spoke about the most prestigious award of all, 'The Southend Sports School of the Year' and the fact that Earls Hall had won the award for the past three years. He then explained that to win the award for a fourth time would be remarkable and unprecedented in the history of the sports awards. There was a huge cheer when he then announced Earls Hall as the winners and presented the award to Mr Smith, Will and Hannah. To win yet again is a phenomenal achievement and is testimony to the hard work of all of the children and, of course, to Mr Smith. We are so lucky to have such a talented coach as part of the team. Well done children and Mr Smith, we are proud of you!It was an end of an era today as we marked the retirement of Mrs Babak and Mrs Fry after twenty four and thirty one years service respectively. The team held a cake party for them in the staffroom where their friends were able to wish them well before the children from Foundation Stage and KS1 held a special assembly for them in the downstairs hall. Mr B thanked them for their decades of hard work before the children sang them 'A Million Dreams' from 'The Greatest Showman'. The children then presented them with cards and banners that they had made and shared memories of working with them. On behalf of all of the literally thousands of children both ladies have supported over the years, I would like to thank them for the dedication that they have shown to the school over the years.In the afternoon there was time for one final 'AOK Club' mission as Mr B was helped by a group of children from Year Six to clear the front of  the school on Carlton Avenue of weeds and litter. The children came up with a chant, "We Need the Weeds" and worked brilliantly together as a team. Mr B was delighted to present the children with their special badges in recognition of their kindness. Well done children, we are proud of you!Also in the afternoon, upstairs in the hall, the children from Years Two to Five were treated to a performance from the 'Steps Ahead' performing arts group. The group performed their showcase of 'We Will Rock You' and really impressed their audience. Well done children, we are proud of you!
A Whole New World!
It was a special day at Earls Hall today as the children in Year Six took to the stage for the last time in order to perform their end of year leavers production of 'Aladdin'. The show was fantastic and saw the children act, sing and dance their way through the story of the hard on his luck boy who won the heart of Princess Jasmine.There were solos and duets sung by the children as well as numbers where the whole year group sang together. The acting was amazing and the audience, full of proud parents and other family members,gave the stars a huge round of  applause to show their appreciation.It was a lovely way for the children to end their time at the school and with just two days to go emotions were running high. Thank you to all of the children and staff for all of their hard work. We are proud of you!
Terrific Transition!
There was a theme of transition in school today. The children in our current Year One enjoyed lunch over in the dining hall at lunchtime in preparation for when they eat over there every day as Year Twos in September. They practised lining up at the serving counter, independently collecting their cutlery and pouring their own drinks of water or milk from the jugs on the table. Mrs Warren-Hardy was very impressed with the children's manners and was pleased to hear lots of children saying please and thank you. Well done children, we are proud of you!Meanwhile, out in the Forest Friends area out of the front of the school, the children in our current Years Two and Three enjoyed a picnic lunch together. The children in Year Two prepared their own lunches in class throughout the morning and were then joined by the teachers and children from Year Three where they got to know each other a little better in a relaxed atmosphere eating and playing games.In the afternoon, the downstairs hall played host to our final transition meeting for parents as Mrs Cockett told the parents of next years Year Four all about the curriculum next year. At the end of the session there was the opportunity for the parents to introduce themselves to the teachers over a cup of tea.After school the teachers held another hand over session where they talked through the children in the widest possible sense with the colleagues who are teaching them in September.
Bravo for Belchamps!
The final week of the academic year started with a bang today as the children from Year Three ventured out of school on a fantastic trip to Belchamps. Throughout the day the children had to face a number of challenges and teamwork really was the word of the day. The children wore harnesses and climbed a series of towers, poles and crates, encouraging each other to keep on trying their best. At the end of the afternoon there was the chance to gather around the fire and sing a range of camping songs. It was a great day which all of the children enjoyed.Meanwhile, back in school, Year One spent the morning in their new Year Two class. The whole morning was about team building and developing perseverance skills. All the children created a book mark using a running stitch and it was great to hear them encourage each other when they got stuck. Children also worked with their new friends to build newspaper towers and create their own islands whilst working in a team. Everyone had a lovely morning and they were very excited about their new classes.In the afternoon a group of children from Sycamore took part in our latest 'AOK Club' mission where they were challenged to wash the school minibus as a surprise for Mr Smith. They worked as a team to make sure tat the bus was sparkling clean and Mr B was delighted to present them with their special badges in recognition of their kindness.Meanwhile, the downstairs hall played host to two transition meetings for the parents of children moving into Year Five and Six next year. Mrs Creak and Miss Brooker talked through the curriculum for the year before the parents chatted to the teachers over a cup of tea.Later in the hall the children from the KS1 Steps Ahead performing arts group performed their end of year showcase. The children performed a series of songs which told the story of Oliver and dazzled the audience with their confidence. Well done children, we are proud of you!In the evening a large group of our Year Six pupils and their parents enjoyed a leavers meal at Zen City. The children were joined by Mr B and the Year Six team where they all enjoyed a Chinese meal before partying the night away!
