Magic Monday!
It was another great start to the week at Earls Hall today. The day saw the children in Foxes gain an understanding of being visually challenged or blind by using their senses to identify numbers on a domino. Mr Geach explained how some people use braille in order to read and how important it is to use other senses when one, such as sight, is impaired.The children in the Foundation Stage continued to enjoy their full day in school. They continued to explore the early years garden, playing and learning with their new friends on the new water wall as well as with the tyres, small world play items and building blocks. In the classroom some children worked in the creative areas to make a range of decorative hats and accessories.Out on the playground, in the afternoon, the children in 6C took part in their first 'Bikeability' session of the week where they gained confidence throughout the session whilst developing their understanding of how their bikes work. Meanwhile, out on the field, the children in Hawks developed their sprinting skills with Mr Cann.Over in the dining hall the PTA hosted a welcome tea party for parents new to the school where they chatted about ways to get involved in the work of the group which benefits all of the children. Thanks to everyone who made it along.
Perfect PGL!
It has been an exciting couple of days for a group of children from Year Five who have been having the time of their lives at PGL, Windmill Hill Sussex. The children soon settled into the idea of challenging themselves throughout their stay by taking part in a range of exciting and daring activities. So far the children have been on the climbing wall, taken part in raft building, developed their fencing archery skills and tried their best at attempting the trapeze. The meal times have been a pleasure and bedtime, although a little later than usual, was pretty uneventful!Having taken part in a campfire activity last night, the children will tonight enjoy a giant game of night time tag called 'Hunt the Flag'.
Final Foundation!
It was a fantastic morning at Earls Hall today as we welcomed the final group of Foundation Stage starters into the three classes! It was smashing to see each class finally full with happy children and the new starters soon familiarised themselves to their new surroundings. They visited key areas of the school and got to know their new friends and teachers by playing alongside them, both inside the classroom and outside on the decking area.In the morning we were joined by Mrs Eshmade, one of our school governors, who met with our new Head Girl, Head Boy and House Captains to discuss their new roles. They told her all about the qualities which we aim for everyone in our community to display in order to be the best people they can be and how they have settled into Year Six.Later, in the afternoon, the downstairs hall played host to another 'Rock Steady' workshop where Phil put the children through their paces by teaching them the drums, electric guitar and keyboards in a band setting.Outside on the playground the children from 6MC took part in their second day of Bikeability sessions where they made stunning progress and grew massively in confidence!In Sycamore the children worked in pairs to create electrical circuits which lit a bulb whilst in Year Two the children identified how to share worries in a healthy way by creating their own worry monsters.
Marvellous Monday!
It was a busy and exciting start to another week at Earls Hall today. The morning saw us welcome our penultimate groups of Foundation Stage pupils into the classes who spent their time familiarising themselves with their new surroundings. They played alongside the rest of the children, visited the library and Mr B in his office, earning one of his special stickers for making such a positive start to their time with us.The assemblies in the morning focused on one of our key qualities which make us the best people we can be. Today Mr B talked to the children about being honest. In the KS1 assembly the children helped him act out the story of 'The Boy Who Cried Wolf' and thought about how important it is to be thought of as an honest person rather than someone who tells lies. In the KS2 assembly Mr B reminded the children about the story and then the children identified possible consequences for being dishonest.At lunchtime Mrs Creak and Mrs Ludlam enjoyed lunch at the centre table where they were joined by children who they had seen displaying excellent manners.In the afternoon the children in Year Three studied aerial photographs, including ones of the school, and identified features whilst the children in 6MC took to their bicycles in order to take part in 'Bikeability' lessons.The afternoon saw the children in Squirrels and Woodpeckers joined by Miss Drew and her therapy dog; Koda. Children took turns to join Koda and read to him, loving every minute of the experience!
Role Models!
The end of the week was a special occasion in more ways than one at Earls Hall. The day saw us welcome another group of children into each of our Foundation Stage classes, joining those who started with us on Wednesday and Thursday. The children investigated their new classrooms and went on a tour of some parts of the building which they will soon visit on a regular basis. They visited the library, looked at the fish tank and said hello to the lovely office ladies before popping into Mr B's office to investigate his toys. As more and more children join the classes, it is lovely to see them take to their new surroundings so well.It was also a special day in terms of celebrating role models. As always on a Friday, we held two simultaneous 'Celebration Assemblies'. Mr Geach led the assembly in the downstairs hall with the children from Years One, Three and Five whilst Mr B led the second assembly in the upstairs hall with the children from Years Two, Four and Six. In his assembly Mr B addressed the children from Year six and explained about the process of becoming a prefect. Prefects will be chosen this year at two points of the year; October and February. Children will be asked whether they wish to take on extra responsibilities by being a prefect and will have to complete an application which must demonstrate how they display the qualities which make us the best people that we can be. At Earls Hall we want children to be honest, unique, creative, responsible, reflective, team players and respectful and applications will have to reflect these qualities.Mr B then explained that to start the year the year group leaders had met with himself, Miss Ellacott, Mrs Critoph and Mr Geach to identify a small group of children who already had a proven track record of displaying these qualities and these children would serve as House Captains, Head Boy and Head Girl. These children will have to act as continuous role models for the entire school and undertake key duties on a weekly basis. After the children were announced and presented with their special badges in recognition of their achievements they went downstairs to be announced to the children in Mr Geach's assembly before they each in turn phoned their parents to tell them the proud news from Mr B's office. Well done to all of the children who were given the roles in recognition of their magnificent behaviour over a sustained period of time, we are very proud of you all.At lunchtime the children enjoyed another tasty lunch in the swanky new dining hall and a group of children who were spotted displaying excellent manners in the hall were invited to join Mr B on the centre table in recognition of their efforts. Well done children,we are proud of how polite you are.In the afternoon the children in Foxes began planning and drafting some exciting stories before Mrs Linfield met with a group of parents from Beech for a 'Tea with Teacher' session in the downstairs hall.After school the downstairs hall played host to Mr B's Jungle Club whilst Mrs Smoothy put a group of KS1 children through their paces in Tag Rugby club on the field. In Squirrels more children showed off their artistic flair by taking part in Clay Cottage club where they began to make their  own money boxes.
Thrilling Thursday!
The week in school continued to be a great one as we welcomed another group of children into each of our three Foundation Stage classes. The children took turns in class to share their 'This is Me' bags; bags which are full of important things which belong to the children and make them unique. The children who started to day visited key areas of the school and met lots of the adults from outside their classes before joining their new friends back in the Foundation Stage. It was lovely to see even more children in the classrooms than yesterday.Meanwhile, in the upstairs hall, Miss Ellacott led an assembly for the children explaining all about the recent Jewish celebration of Rosh Hashanah. She was supported by a number of children of the Jewish faith who shared with the children all about how they celebrated the festival with their families.At lunchtime the children enjoyed a gammon roast and were joined in the dining hall by the Year Three teachers, Mr B and Mrs Rick who all identified children who had been displaying excellent manners to join them on the centre table.In the afternoon the swimming pool saw children from Year Six develop their strokes whilst 6J continued to develop their cycling skills on the playground as part of the 'Bikeability' course. Meanwhile, in Oaks, the children painted water colour scenes of underwater whilst in Aspen the children began to design their own underwater creature stuffed toy.After school the downstairs hall hosted the return of our Karate club led by Mr England whilst Mrs Joyce led the rounders club on the field.
First Foundation!
It was an exciting day for the Foundation Stage team today as they welcomed the first of their new children into school for the first time. A small group of children spent the morning getting to know each other and familiarising themselves with their new surroundings. They investigated the toys in the classroom, the equipment on the outside decking area and visited Mr B's office in order to know where they would celebrate their work with him with some even eating fruit from his fruit bowl as a reward! Each day the team will welcome a further group of children until each  class is full. Well done to all the children for enjoying such a great first day with us!Meanwhile, the children in Squirrels investigated digraphs in their daily 'Letters & Sounds' session whilst the children in Elm started a topic about living things and their habitats. As a starting point for a session on coding the children in Sycamore created a flowchart about running a bath whilst in Kestrels the children wrote postcards to the character of Flat Stanley.In Willows the children were learning about the properties of solids, liquids and gases whilst in Kites the children researched a range of sculptures and identified their favourite one, giving reasons for their choices.
Workshop & Wheels!
It was another busy day at Earls Hall today as the school was a hive of activity!The day started with a visit from Mr Stanton, our Chair of Governors. After meeting with Mr B, Mr Stanton met with a group of children from Year One who told him all about their transition from the Foundation Stage and their recent storytelling session by Charlie Wilson.Throughout the day, in the upstairs hall, the children from Year six worked in teams and took part in an architectural workshop. ‘Architecture Workshops’ are hands-on fun educational activities for all Key Stages and abilities. They are designed to enhance the national curriculum and to communicate the art and experience of architecture, art, and design.Each child was challenged to build a tetrahedron using canes and elastic bands independently before working as a group to construct one on a larger scale. Throughout the activity the children had to continually assess their work and make changes to improve it accordingly.Martin, the workshop leader, then challenged the children to think of shelters to construct which would be suitable for a variety of habitats. The challenge was designed to apply skills developed in design technology, maths and science and the workshop worked to stimulate our pupil’s imagination, interpretative and visual problem solving skills helping to develop higher order thinking skills.At lunchtime the dining hall saw Mr B joined by a group of children at the centre table who had demonstrated wonderful manners before Mrs Cockett and Mr Brasted also came over to enjoy lunch with another group of children.In the afternoon the children in Year Two took part in some team challenges where they used newspapers to build different structures with as much strength as possible whilst the children in 6J took part in 'Bikeability' sessions on the playground. 
Wonderful Wilson!
It was a fabulous start to the new week for the children in Years One and Two as they were treated to some smashing storytelling sessions by master storyteller; Charlie Wilson.Charlie came in to tell a story to the Year one children about the Honeymouse followed by another story retell for the Year Two classes called 'The Rabbit and the Sky Goddess'.  He engaged the children by including repeated phrases, songs with instruments and actions; even entertaining the children by strumming his trusty guitar. It was lovely to see so many children volunteer to stand up in front of their classes and play the roles of characters within the story.  Some children even had their own dialogue, which they delivered with fantastic confidence and expression.  Afterwards the children discussed what they liked best about Charlie's storytelling style.Thank you to our PTA for funding the morning; the latest in a long line of curriculum enrichment activities.Later in the day Mr B was joined at the centre table at lunchtime by children who he had spotted displaying wonderful manners. It was noted that the children were also willing to try part of the lunch which they had not tried before. Well done children, we are proud of you!
