Another week at Earls Hall began with the children in our KS1 assembly being introduced to the Wombles on the big screen by Mr B. The children watched the characters cleaning up litter on Wimbledon Common and then discussed how it was wrong that there was rubbish there in the first place. With talk partners they thought about the types of litter that is sometimes found around the school and how this can be reduced. The children identified places where we have bins and, after deciding that we probably don’t have any Wombles to clean up after us, we should put any litter we have in the bin.
Later in the day, the children in Beech talked about their favourite foods and whether they are healthy or not; all in French. Meanwhile, down the corridor, the children in Willow investigated life as a Victorian servant and compared it to the life of a child from today. After they had researched facts about the children, they wrote diary accounts as if they were the children themselves.
In Kestrels the children worked in teams in order to create fact file posters about the lives of creatures living in the Arctic whilst out on the field Mr Smith worked with the children in Sycamore to develop their long jump and shot putting skills. Meanwhile, also on the field, the children in 6S enjoyed a fast paced game of rounders.
