Happy Chef’s Day!
It was a special day for the ladies over in the kitchen today as they were treated to a song and dance by some of the children from Year Three. Some time ago one of our pupils, Orlaith, decided that she wanted to say thank you to Mrs Warren Hardy and her ladies for all of their hard work cooking and so she arranged meetings with Mr B and Mr Geach and rallied friends together to help her. Today, at the beginning of the lunch break, the children went over and performed a special 'Happy Chef's Day' song and dance and left celebratory posters for the staff. Well done children, we are proud of you! At the end of the lunch break the team said a fond farewell to Mrs Underhill as she finished her final shift. Thanks on behalf of all of the children for your hard work Mrs Underhill! Meanwhile, George the tortoise continued to gain energy following the end of his hibernation. Today some of the children from Robins helped Mr B feed him and enjoyed watching him zoom around the office! Down in the Foundation Stage the children finished off their learning about Chinese New Year by making a host of Chinese lanterns whilst, outside on the playground, the children from Elm enjoyed a hockey based PE lesson. In our two simultaneous 'Celebration Assemblies' individual children from each class were presented with 'Earls Hall Stars' certificates in recognition of effort and achievement and, at the end of the afternoon, our 'Learning Ambassadors' met with Mrs Irwin, one of the school governors, in order to discuss the learning which has taken place across the school throughout the week. Well done children, we are proud of you!
Super Science!
There was lots of productive activity taking place at Earls Hall again today! The morning began with Mr B leading assembly for the children in Foundation Stage and KS1 where they focused on how to stop germs spreading. The children talked about the importance of hand washing, covering their mouth when coughing and throwing away old tissues in the bin. Later in the morning, in KS2, Mrs Crouch told the children all about Burns Night. Later in the day the children in Elm enjoyed a fun Science lesson. They made predictions about circuits and then made them to test if they worked or not.  They learnt about circuit diagrams and symbols for electrical components before enjoying an art lesson where they made moving figures to support their work on Lowry.   The children in Year Two were practising their dancing by moving together in 'unison' whilst the children in Foundation Stage were writing their own fortune cookie messages to make each other happy following on from their learning about Chinese New Year. They also made Chinese lanterns to decorate the classroom and lucky red envelopes to store chocolate coins in.  The pupils in Year Three were keen to show off their own cleverly designed cheesy Stonehenge, using cheese puffs and cream cheese as a glue whilst the children in Year Six were exploring how to create shadows and how to change them by altering one variable.  Some children made the shadow longer or shorter by changing the distance between the  light source and the object.  Others changed the darkness of the shadow by swapping around the objects they were using.  Some of our scientists used rulers to measure the length of the shadows whilst others were drawing around the shadows on paper.  In the afternoon the children in Year One were using Eric Carle as inspiration to create their own tissue paper collage flowers, butterflies and caterpillars.
Sport & Singing!
It was a busy day again at Earls Hall today and one which saw lots of children from across KS2 represent the school, both in sport and singing! Our Year Five and Six choir are currently at the O2 where they are taking part in the 'Young Voices 2020' celebration- singing with thousands of other children in unison! Details of how they got on will be in the website news tomorrow.Well done to all of our singers, we are proud of you! Meanwhile, Mr Smith, Mrs Elliott and Mrs Bowers accompanied dozens of children at the KS2 indoor athletics competition which was held at Garons. The children competed against sixteen other schools and ran, jumped and threw their way through the tournament. It was a successful day which saw the Year Five and Six pupils rank in third place and the Year Three and Four come in second place. Well done to all of the children who took part, we are proud of you! Back in school,there was plenty of animal magic as more children from the Foundation Stage helped out with the farm animals. The children discovered that the ducks had laid eggs and had fun playing with the goats. Meanwhile, in Mr B's office, George the tortoise finally fully woke up from his hibernation and had plenty of visitors as a result. Down in Dormice, the children saw the egg, which had accidentally been taken by the teachers on their adventure, be returned back to its own time and hatch to reveal a baby long necked dinosaur. As a result the children hatched their own papier mache eggs to reveal their own mini dinosaurs inside!
Chinese New Year!
It was a busy day for the children in Foundation Stage today! The morning began with many of the children exploring the ice and frost in the Early Years Garden before they moved on to learning all about the Chinese New Year! The children loved taking part in dragon dances in the hall as well as tasting noodles and prawn crackers using chopsticks. Meanwhile, the children in Year Four were investigating and comparing the differences between different settlements. They had to make inferences about where in the world the pictures were taken and decide which area they would prefer to live . Elsewhere, also in Year Four, the children in Oak were creating an electrical circuit and drawing a diagram to represent it. They were then recording results about each circuit made, in a table. The children in Year Two children enjoyed showing their friends in Year One what they had learned about dinosaur extinction theories. They made books that they shared and the Year One pupils enjoyed hearing about it. There was much excitement in school as the legend, Mrs Russell, visited the children in Year Two in order to listen to them read. Our much missed, and dearly loved, former office assistant promised to come back to hear the children again soon! Our dinosaur theme continued as the children in In Year One continued to make their dinosaurs out of paper plates by painting, cutting and sticking whilst, upstairs, the children in Year Three followed up on their work on the Stone Age by making some cave art. They practised some different designs in their books, before completing a second draft of their chosen design.
Birds & Bibles!
It was a busy start to another week at Earls Hall! The morning began with the children in KS1 discussing the importance of good manners in their assembly. The children focused on how being polite makes others feel and how displaying good manners costs nothing but creates a positive impression. The children reminded each other of lots of ways which they can be polite on an everyday basis and a positive time was had by all! Later in the day the children in Year Five were making mini movies based on their class text, Chinese Cinderella, using animals from the story of the Chinese Zodiac.  They began by using software to trace a picture and colour it in.  Meanwhile, in Year One, the children were painting paper plates and cutting paper to create their own paper dinosaur based on a dinosaur of their own choice.  In Year Two the children were making their dinosaur pictures based on Henri Matisse's 'painting with scissors' technique. Also in PE, Badgers were dancing moving high and low and making tall and small shapes.  In Year Three the children were looking at popular books and comparing them to the Bible as a special book for Christians.They had to discuss and choose what they believed to be the most important reasons for owning a bible and then put them in order of importance.  Year Five were designing a piece of sewing based on the story of the Willow Pattern.  They were each given a different part of the story, which will then be sewn and put together to make a sewn storyboard. In the Foundation Stage the children used their 'Forest Friends' sessions to focus on birds. They spoke about birds, their nests and how they were made. The children then went off to make their own nests from natural resources and pretended to be baby birds waiting for the Mummy or Daddy bird to come and feed them. The children each took turns to make fat balls or cereal feeders to feed the birds.
Friday Finals!
It was an exciting day for Earls Hall as Mr Smith took our basketball team over to Colchester in order to compete in the Essex finals. Following their Southend victory before Christmas, the team were pitted against the very best other teams from across the county and finished a magnificent second place by the end of the competition! Well done to all of the children who represented the school, we are proud of you! Meanwhile, back in school, individual children from each class were presented with our 'Earls Hall Stars' certificates in our two simultaneous 'Celebration Assemblies' in recognition of their efforts and achievements. Certificates were also presented for Club 24 achievements and Times Table Rock Stars. Well done to all of the children rewarded today, we are proud of you. At the end of the afternoon our 'Learning Ambassadors' from each class met with Mrs Irwin from the governing body in order to tell her all about the learning which has been taking place across the school since Monday. The children answered questions about the themes that they have been learning through beautifully. well done children, we are proud of you.
Cool for Cats!
It was a purrrrrfect day for a group of children from Rabbits today as they took part in our latest 'AOK Club' mission which saw them assist lots of new four legged friends. The children ventured out to Kitty's Paradise, a cattery which houses up to twenty three cats for short periods, where they helped Mrs Dorn, who runs the cattery, to look after the cats. The children helped sweep the areas where the cats are housed and also stimulated them by playing with them and showing them affection. All of the children behaved beautifully throughout the mission and Mr B was delighted too present them with their special badges back at school in recognition of their kindness. Well done children, we are proud of you! Meanwhile, there was more animal magic on display as Mrs Timpson was joined by more groups of children from the Foundation Stage who helped her look after the farm animals. Geraldine, Gerald and Gordon the goats entertained the children as they found out all about the jobs needed to be undertaken in order to keep them healthy. The children also visited the ducks and the chickens and fed them treats. After school there was excitement in the Foundation stage as Mr Town began building some new bits of furniture which will enhance the learning environment for our youngest learners.
Musicians & Mathematicians!
It was a busy day at Earls Hall again today. The day saw a group of children from Year Six accompany the lovely Mrs Collins in order to represent the school at this years 'Explore Learning Mathematicians Award' competition which saw them compete against six other local schools. The competition saw the team take part in two challenges where they had to work as a team and then present their findings. The results of the day will be announced next Wednesday. Well done to all of the children who represented the school, we are proud of you. Meanwhile, back in school, Mrs Timpson was assisted by a host of children from across the Foundation Stage as they helped her undertake farming duties with the school animals. The children were confident when helping in the goat, chicken and duck enclosures and the animals loved being petted by our little farm hands. In the afternoon Mr B and Mrs Humphrey took a group of children from Year six on our latest 'AOK Club' mission. The children ventured out to Priory House residential home where they entertained the residents with their musical talents. The home provided the children with an organ on which they played their latest piano pieces, adapting their playing skillfully when playing a different instrument. After they had performed the children took the time to chat to some of the residents who showed a particular interest in their talents and the home staff were very appreciative of their time. Mr B was pleased to present the pianists with their special badges back in school. Well done children, we are proud of you!
Puddles & Pictures!
It was a wet and windy day at Earls Hall today. The weather inspired the children in the Foundation Stage to explore puddles. They had great fun splashing but also investigated what happened to the puddles when they added more water or scraped away mud. In Dormice the children continued to show an interest in weddings and so some of the them made their own model wedding cakes. In Year One the children in Rabbits were making personal timelines starting from when they were born, ending with being at school and with something of their choice in between.
