Lights, Camel, Action!
The end of the week at Earls Hall was a proud day for all in Year Two as the children took to the stage on two occasions in order to entertain proud parents and other family members with their performances of 'Lights, Camel, Action'!  The Christmas play saw the cast of nativity celebrities celebrate Jesus' birth with a dazzling dance show in the style of 'Strictly Come Dancing'. The children acted, sang and danced their way through the performances confidently and a great time was had by all. Well done to all of the children who performed, we are proud of you!Once again, the PTA were on hand to serve refreshments after the performances- even dressing up as elves at one point! Thank you to all of the volunteers who have given their time throughout, what has been, a busy week of shows.Elsewhere in school, the children in KS2 took part in a 'Celebration Assembly' where Mrs Ludlam presented a child from each class with a 'Earls Hall Star' certificate in recognition of individual achievement or effort. There were also times table certificates presented.

Whoops!
It was a wonderful day for the children in Year One today as they took to the stage on two occasions in order to perform the Christmas story 'Whoops-a-Daisy Angel'!The performance told the story of  a disorganised, clumsy but lovable angel who never feels as though she is given an important job to do. Suddenly, she is surprised and delighted when she is chosen to show the way to Bethlehem in order to witness the birth of Baby Jesus.The children sang, danced and acted their way through the show to the delight of proud parents and other family members. Well done to all of the children who performed, we are proud of you all.After each of the performances had finished, the PTA were on hand once again to serve Christmas refreshments. Thank you, once again, to all of our volunteers.Elsewhere in school, the children in Year Five followed a series of instructions in order to create their own cardboard folded elf hat whilst the children in 6C were investigating how Darwin's Finches had evolved and adapted to survive in their environments through a fun experiment involving sweets! Meanwhile, in the upstairs hall, the children from Beech took part in a circuit of exercises.Mr B and Miss Neal were joined at the centre table in the Woodland Diner by another group of children who had been spotted displaying excellent manners. There was more pride on show in Mr B's office as he enjoyed some reading sessions with children from the Foundation Stage and KS1. Well done to all of the children who read today, you really made Mr B's day! 
Christmas Jigsaw!
It was a wonderful day for the children in Year Four today as they took to the stage on two occasions; thrilling proud parents and other family members with their performances of 'The Christmas Jigsaw'!In the afternoon the performance was started off by a routine performed by our Earls Hall timbrel group, the only group of its kind in Southend, where the children played and danced to music.The Year Four pupils then performed their play which told the story of a bustling Christmas market, full of the joyful sounds of carol singers and cheeky market sellers, where five excited children come across a very special stallholder who gives them a tatty old Christmas jigsaw in return for the promise that they will find time to complete it on Christmas Eve. As the children gradually pieced the jigsaw together with the help of a very special visitor, the Christmas story came to life with all the traditional nativity characters.It was a wonderful performance where all of the children had their moment to shine. Thank you to all of the children and staff for their hard work, we are proud of you!Meanwhile, there were celebrations on the sporting front as a group of children from across Year Six took part in the Southend Handball Tournament and were crowned champions! Our first match saw us play Bournemouth Park where we won 7.3. Next it was Westborough with us winning 8.0, then we had two tough games against Friars (3.2) and Chalkwell (2.0). This left us with one game remaining against Prince Avenue and if we won it we would be champions. We started slowly and found ourselves loosing 1.0……after that we got our game together and went on to win the match 4.1 and so we were crowned champions. All the players really listened and played very well. Well done children, we are proud of you!Elsewhere in school, the children in Beech continued to create their own Greek tiles out of clay, using a variety of tools to indent the clay to make different patterns and textures.
Foundation Christmas Play!
It was a special day for the children in the Foundation Stage classes today as they took to the stage for the very first time in order to perform their Christmas play. The children sang, danced and acted their way through the story of 'A Snowman at Sunset' in both morning and afternoon performances; a tale which told the story of a group of children who, whilst working together as a team to build a snowman, discover about the very first Christmas when baby Jesus was born.After the main story was performed more children took to the stage in order to sing and dance their way through a number of Christmas themed songs including 'The Reindeer Cokey' and 'When Santa got stuck up the Chimney'. It was a wonderful performance and we were proud of all of the children.After the performances our trusty PTA were on hand to serve hot drinks, mince pies, biscuits and cakes. Thank you to all of the volunteers who gave their time.Meanwhile, in Year Two, the children created their very own stockings by sewing felt together and Father Christmas Christmas cards by cutting and sticking card.
Animal Magic!
It was a day full  of animal magic at Earls Hall as the children from Year Three investigated a variety of different animals. The children learnt all about Hermione the tortoise, Rodney the rabbit and Kitty the Russian Hamster in three separate sessions. By asking questions about the animals, the children noted down bullet points detailing the facts that they gained in the answers which they will later use to write non-chronological reports.Later in the morning a group of children from across the classes extended their investigations by accompanying Mr B on a trip to Earls Hall Vets with Rodney. The children went into the consultation room where they met Vet Mark. He explained to the group the different ways he checks rabbits to see if they are healthy such as listening to their heart and digestive system using his stethoscope, checking their teeth to ensure that they are not overgrown and weighing them. The children had a go at listening to Rodney's heartbeat for themselves and asked Mark a range of questions, the answers of which they could feedback to the rest of the year group to help inform their reports. Rodney then had his claws trimmed before being given a clean bill of health, bar being a little overweight.At lunchtime Mr B was joined on the centre table by a group of children who he had spotted displaying excellent manners in the Woodland Diner.In the afternoon the children in 6J brought their Thames River learning to a conclusion by identifying the different aspects of the river on a map whilst the children in the Foundation Stage worked in teams to create huge train tracks, snowflakes and run a restaurant.
Fab Festivities!
The end of the week at Earls Hall was a busy one, particularly for our PTA volunteers! Throughout the day the children from KS2 went, each class in turn, to visit Father Christmas in his magical grotto and were once again assisted by some of our lovely Year Six elves. Each child had a little chat with the big man himself and talked to him about their plans for the festive period and what they might like for Christmas. Thank you so much to Father Christmas for giving us so much of your time over the past couple of days at, what we are certain, is an extremely busy time of year in the workshop!In the morning we held our two 'Celebration Assemblies' simultaneously where we presented our 'Earls Hall Stars' to an individual from each class for their effort or achievement. We also presented certificates for reading races and times tables. Well done to all of the children who were rewarded today, we are proud of you!In the afternoon the whole building was a hive of activity as the PTA set up this years magnificent Christmas Fair which took place directly after school. There were plenty of fun stalls to choose from and prizes to be won. there were also lots of tasty treats on offer over in the Woodland Diner and a great time was had by all. Thank you to everyone who gave their time to set up, manned a stall, tidied up or simply supported the event.
Great Grotto!
It was a magical day for the children in Foundation Stage and KS1 as they were visited by none other than father Christmas! Last night Mr B heard reports of a sleigh landing on the roof of the school and, when he returned to the school in order to investigate, he found that the community room had been transformed into a magical grotto! Today, as Mrs Russell kept the reindeer company on the roof by feeding them carrots, each class in turn visited the magical grotto; entering a magical snow world complete with igloo and adorned with sparkling trees before entering a cosy gingerbread house and spending time with Father Christmas. Every child who visited talked about how they had been well behaved and, if they were on the good list, were given a special present to mark their visit.Throughout the day the children were supported by elves from Year Six, either in the grotto or playing with them out on the playground, and a wonderful time was had by all. Thank you so much to all the PTA helpers who may have had more than a little to do with the transformation last night!Meanwhile, in Year Five, the children were joined by Madeline, a local artist, who came into each class in turn in order to share her clay work. All the children used their Greek designs to make a clay tile. They used two types of clay and various tools to build texture on the tiles. It was a wonderful visit which all the children enjoyed. Thank you Madeline for your time.At lunchtime both Mr B and Mr Cann were joined at the centre table in the Woodland Diner by children who they had witnessed displaying excellent manners.In the afternoon the children in Year two created their own moveable toys, complete with axles, whilst the children in Rabbits sorted animals to given criteria in various tables and charts.
Sport & Science!
It was a day of full of team work today at Earls Hall. Throughout the day a number of children represented the school at the Southend Boccia and New Aged Kurling tournament at Garons. In the morning our Boccia team played well, winning three games and losing three games which proved to be an exciting result for all involved. In the afternoon the New Aged Kurling team won six out of eight matches meaning that they were ranked third place overall. Well done to all of the children who took part, we are proud of you!Meanwhile, another team of children represented the school at the National Young Mathematician Awards. In the first round, nine teams entered in the Southend regionals and Earls Hall qualified for the second round which took place today. The children were set a number of high level Maths challenges and were marked on mathematical skills, teamwork and communication of their reasoning and solution. We will find out how the team scored next week, good luck! Well done to all of the children who represented the school, we are proud of you!Meanwhile, back at school, both Mr B and Mr Geach enjoyed lunch at the centre table with children who had been identified displaying excellent manners in the dining hall. Well done children, we are proud of you.In the afternoon Mr B was joined in his office by a group of children from Year Six who were chosen to write the official Christmas cards the school send out each year to friends and fellow schools in the area. Children from KS1 made penguin cards on Monday afternoon with Miss Bennett and today the inserts were written to the recipients in stunning handwriting.Upstairs some children who were identified as keen Scientists in Year Five were joined by twelve students from Westcliff High School for Boys who taught them how to conduct a series of experiments covering three aspects of Science; Chemistry, Biology and Physics. The children had the opportunity to burn elements over a bunsen burner and observed the colours. They looked at cells from their cheeks under a microscope, investigated Bernoulli's principle of air pressure and made parallel and series circuits. It was a great afternoon, thank you to all of the students who gave us their time. 
Rockin Around the Christmas Tree!
The sound of rock echoed around the school on two occasions today as the children from the 'Rock Steady workshops' performed a series of hits in a special concert. The children have been learning a range of instruments as a band throughout the term and today three bands took to the stage in the upstairs hall in order to show how brilliant they now are when they play together. In the first performance the children played to the rest of the children from KS2 and then afterwards they performed again, this time to proud parents and other family members. Well done to all of the children who took part and performed, we are proud of you!Meanwhile, outside in the Forest Friends area, the children from Year One created a series of works of art out of natural materials, made large scale dens in teams and created a series of Christmas decorations by drilling and painting wooden disks.At the end of the afternoon the children in Year Three continued to investigate bread by creating their own dough. The children followed a series of instructions in order to create dough that could hang upside down without falling which they could then roll and twist into different shapes ready to bake.....some were more successful than others!
