It has been a busy end to the week full of reasons to celebrate! On Thursday morning the children in Foundation Stage and Year One invited parents into the classrooms in order to see how we develop writing in school. Thanks to all of the parents who came along. On Thursday afternoon a group of children from our KS1 choir were accompanied by Mrs Bowden, Mrs Critoph, Mrs Russell and Mr B to the infant ‘Music Festival’, once again held at the Freight House in Rochford. The children were joined by three other Essex schools and sang group numbers, playing percussion instruments to one, and performing two individual songs on the stage. Proud parents and other family members watched and a great time was had by all. Well done to all of the performers, we are proud of you.
On Thursday afternoon, after school, Mrs Linfield and Miss Ellacott hosted ‘Tennis Club’ whilst Mrs Cockett held another ‘Craft Club’ where children decorated cakes.
On Friday morning the children gathered in both halls in order to take part in our ‘Celebration Assemblies’. Mr Geach and Mrs Cockett presented ‘Earls Hall Stars’ certificates to individual children from every class in recognition of their effort and achievement. There were also certificates presented for times tables and reading races. Well done to all of the children who were presented with certificates, we are proud of you!
Over the last three days the community room has hosted ‘Mothers Day sales’ so that children can purchase gifts for their Mums and other special ladies in their lives. The sales have been a great success, thank you to all of the PTA volunteers who gave their time to the sales.
This morning the school was visited by Cllr Boyd who has a responsibility for children and learning within the council. Mrs Boyd is a former Earls Hall pupil so, along with taking a trip down memory lane, was interested to hear all about the developments of the school and took time to talk to some children about their learning.
This afternoon we announced our latest group of prefects who will take responsibilities across the school. Mr B informed all of the children in Year six that our third and final group of prefects will be announced very shortly after the Easter holidays. Well done to all of the children chosen, we are proud of you!
