It was a great end to the week at Earls Hall. The morning started with parents and other family members of children from the Foundation Stage joining the lovely Mrs Bowden in the downstairs hall in order to find out more about ‘Letters & Sounds’. Mrs Bowden explained to the parents about how the sessions are used to teach reading and writing on a daily basis before she was joined by children from Year One who demonstrated how they segment and blend words. Thanks to everyone who made it along.
Meanwhile, in the community room, Mr B held the first ‘Family Council’ meeting where parents heard more about, and provided feedback on, parent information meetings, fifteen minute fitness and lunchtimes. The council will be meeting every month and all the meetings are open to everyone, thanks to everyone who came along today.
Later in the morning the children gathered in both halls in order to take part in the Friday ‘Celebration Assemblies’. Mr Geach and Mr B presented the weeks ‘Earls Hall Stars’, celebrated the achievements of the cross country team and the weeks learning ambassadors. Well done to all of the children presented with awards today.
Meanwhile Mrs Geach met with the new members of the school council for the first time. Last year the school council asked Mr B if the dining hall could have a woodland theme when it was redecorated and so today Mrs Geach asked them to think of a name for the hall. The members discussed various possibilities before deciding on ‘The Woodland Diner’.
Later in the morning the weeks learning ambassadors met with Mrs Wilson, one of our school governors, and talked to her about the learning which had taken place in their respective classes since Monday. The children were our first ambassadors and have done a sterling job, well done everyone!
At lunchtime both Mr B and Mr Geach were joined by children who had been identified as demonstrating excellent manners in the hall at the centre table.
After school the children at the ‘Clay Cottage Club’ began making their own clay token boxes with a Harry Potter theme.
