It was a day to celebrate at Earls Hall today as we marked thirty glorious years of the lovely Mrs Russell being part of the team! Mrs Russell first started working at Earls Hall Infants on October 10th 1988, working as the first clerical assistant in the office and the first to use a computer. Over the years she has worked under three Headteachers; Mrs Hoskings, Mrs Foster and Mr B as well as thousands of children. When the Infant and Junior Schools amalgamated to become a Primary in 2015 Mrs Russell continued in her role in the office and remains a cornerstone of the team, admired and loved by both adults and children alike. Her anniversary was celebrated by the children in our KS1 assembly this morning where she was presented with flowers before she was treated to a special tea at lunchtime by the staff to mark her special day. Here’s to the next thirty years!
Also in the KS1 assembly Miss Toms talked to the children about crops of various sorts being harvested. The children identified fruits and vegetables they knew and the colours they were before they all sang the song ‘Harvest Samba’.
Later, in the KS2 assembly, the children were treated to a series of musical performances by the choir and some proud pianists.
Throughout the day a group of KS2 children represented the school at this years inter-school Tag Rugby tournament. The children showed great team work skills and came a respectable sixth place in the tournament. Well done to all of the children who took part, we are proud of you.
Meanwhile, back in school, the children in Sycamore investigated geographical symbols whilst the children in Aspen continued to create their own underwater felt creatures by sewing a range of stitches. In 6MC the children developed their understanding of the plight refugees around the world, taking part in a discussion about the subject.
