Festive Foundation Stage!
It was a fantastic end to a festive week at Earls Hall today as the children in our Foundation Stage classes took to the stage for the very first time in order to perform our final Christmas performances of the week. the children acted, sang and danced their way through a play called 'The Children's Christmas' where all the words had been thought of by the children themselves and then arranged by the teachers. It was a smashing performance which made all the parents and family members in the audience smile from ear to ear! Well done children, we are proud of you! Later in the day the children in Year Five enjoyed a very special afternoon as they undertook their 'Dementia Friends' training sessions. The sessions were delivered by Mike from the Dementia Friends team and gave the children a clear understanding of the causes of dementia, how the condition manifests itself in terms of symptoms and how to treat people living with the condition with respect whilst adopting strategies to help them feel safe and comfortable. The children took the training seriously and were all presented with their 'Dementia Friends' badges which they can wear with pride. Well done children, we are proud of you! In the afternoon a group of children from Year Four helped out in the duck enclosure whilst the children in Willow investigated the constellation of the stars using marshmallows! The theme of space continued after school as the children in KS1 enjoyed another session of 'Astronomy Club'.
Perfect Performers!
It was another festive day at Earls Hall today as we continued our fantastic run of Christmas performances when the children from Year One took to the stage on two occasions in order to sing and act their way through 'It's a Baby!'. The children took to the stage with increasing levels of confidence and the audience of proud parents and other family members loved every second of the show. Well done children, we are proud of you! In the morning the children in the Year Three classes continued their investigations into foods by baking a range of exciting breads! After they had prepared and baked them they were joined by guest food judges, Mr B and Mr Geach, who sampled each loaf and chose a winning bake from each class. The range of bread on offer was wide and included some stunning combinations of flavours! Downstairs, in Dormice, the children learnt about how people were using the Woodland Diner to vote and then set up their own ballot box to cast their own votes based on their favourite television programmes. They chose between Peppa Pig, PJ Masks and Paw Patrol and they put a cross in the box for their favourite show. Paw patrol got 10 votes, Peppa 7 and PJ Masks got 12. One ballot sheet was spoilt. Later, all the children in the foundation stage were treated to a visit from two furry friends as Joash from Writtle agricultural college, who works at the school farm on a Thursday, brought in two guinea pigs for the children to see up close. Joash and Mrs Timpson told the children how to care for the animals and each child was able to have a stroke or a cuddle.
It’s a Cracker!
The children in Year Four were the stars of the stage on two occasions today as they performed in front of proud parents and other family members. Their Christmas production of 'It's a Cracker' saw the year group tell the story of a family who reminded themselves of the true spirit of Christmas. The acting, singing and dancing was out of this world and everyone worked together to ensure that the audience enjoyed themselves. Well done to all of the children for performing with such confidence, we are proud of you! Meanwhile, the children in Sycamore began using clay in order to create their own individual Greek Mythology tiles. They rolled the clay and imprinted the tile squares that they had previously carved their designs on. Outside, in the goat enclosure, Gerald entertained the children at lunchtime by continually spinning on his hind legs whilst the children in Year Six explored the whole school site as they continued to create their own prospectus' in the form of vlogs. In his office, Mr B enjoyed listening to more readers- today from Woodpeckers. Well done children, you made Mr B's day!
Santa’s on Strike!
The downstairs hall was full of proud parents and other family members on two occasions today as the adults came out in force in order to watch our first Christmas performances of the year! Our Year Two children performed the play 'Santa's on Strike' which told the children of a disillusioned Santa despairing of the bad manners of children before being shown a selection of kind children which changed his mind. The elves reminded him of the true meaning of Christmas by showing him the traditional nativity scene before he filled up his sleigh and undertook his usual festive duties! The children sang, danced and acted the play beautifully and all of the audience enjoyed themselves. Well done children, we are proud of you! Our very special guest at the play was none other than living legend, and former office administrator, Mrs Russell! Mrs Russell enjoyed the play before catching up with her former colleagues, visiting the children and even helping out in the office! Later in the day we were visited by the lovely Mrs Draycott and baby Ella. Mrs Draycott, who is currently on maternity leave, caught up with her friends in the staffroom before visiting her old class, who are now Kestrels, in order to introduce the children to her bundle of joy.
Duck DIY!
It was a great start to the penultimate week of the term at Earls Hall! The morning was a special one for the children in KS2 as their assembly saw them reward the efforts and achievements of our latest reading champions. Dozens of children from across the year groups were presented with bronze and silver badges in recognition of reading twenty five and silver badges respectively. Well done children, we are proud of you! There was more reading pride later in the day as Mr B listened to some of our youngest children read. The children from Robins were extremely keen to read and Mr B was incredibly proud of them! In the afternoon a group of children from across Year Six took on some of the farm duties of the school as they laboured over in the duck enclosure. The ground of the enclosure had become very slippery with mud so the children shoveled and spread a ton of pea shingle into the land in order to create some friction. The children worked well as a team and completed the job in just over an hour. Well done children, we are proud of you!
Greeks & Grotto!
It was a busy and exciting end to another week at Earls Hall! The children in Year Five spent the day as ancient Greeks with the help of the team from ‘Portals from the Past’. The children all came to school dressed to impress as Greeks and gathered in the upstairs hall where they learnt all about the Sparta and the Athens battle. They then had the opportunity to play a Greek game, complete a jigsaw and compete in a quiz; drawing on all the facts that they had digested throughout the day. In the afternoon the children all competed in a mini Olympics and loved taking turns to throw the javelin! It was a brilliant day which everyone enjoyed. Thanks to all of our lovely parents for helping it go so well by sending the children into school in such great costumes. Meanwhile, downstairs in the community room, the magical grotto continued to welcome more visitors throughout the day who were all eager to spend some time with Father Christmas. Classes from across KS2 took turns to visit the main man himself and were assisted by members of the PTA and our Year Six elves as they did so. Thank you once again to all of our helpers and to Father Christmas for giving us his time at, what must be, his busiest time of year! In the morning our simultaneous 'Celebration Assemblies' saw us present our 'Earls Hall Stars' to children from each class for effort and achievement and this morning we also congratulated children who had taken part in the national Maths challenge. Well done children, we are proud of you!
Magical Grotto!
It was a magical day at Earls Hall today as, overnight, the community room had been transformed in to a magical grotto which welcomed a very special visitor....Father Christmas himself! Throughout the day, the children from Foundation stage and KS1 visited the grotto class by class and each child had a special chat with Father Christmas and was given a present. The awe and wonder of every visit brought a lump to the throats of the adults helping and every child left with a big smile on their face. Throughout the day the younger children were assisted by our Year Six elves who did a wonderful job. Thank your to the elves, Father Christmas and all of the PTA pixies who transformed the room last night. Meanwhile, down the corridor in the Bumblebees Room, Mrs Smoothy worked with groups of children from across Year One in order to make the official Christmas cards of the school. The children created lots of cards which will be sent to other local schools and regular visitors. Later in the day Mr B welcomed a group of children to his office from Year six who wrote the insides of the cards in their neatest handwriting. Geraldine, Gordon and Gerald the goats welcomed a host of child farmers throughout the day, as did the ducks. The ducks had their water changed in their pond whilst the goats enjoyed a change of hay in the stable. In the morning Mr Smith accompanied our handball team to the Southend inter-schools tournament at Garons. The team played well and came a great third place overall. There was more team spirit on show in the afternoon as our girls football team played against the team from Chalkwell Juniors. The girls performed magnificently and the final result was 8-0. Well done to all of todays sporting stars, we are proud of you!
Brilliant Boccia!
It was another busy day at Earls Hall and one which saw the school earn our third borough sporting win in under a week! Mr Smith accompanied both our Boccia and New Aged Kurling teams to this years Southend inter-school tournament held at Garons where all of the children represented the school beautifully. Our New Aged Kurling team played well and made it to the semi finals whilst our Boccia team triumphed in the final against Bournemouth Park making them Southend champions! Well done to all of the children who represented the school, we are proud of you! Back in school, the children in Woodpeckers enjoyed an arts and craft session with Mrs Cockett where they created story settings for the story of the 'Billy Goats Gruff'. They used a range of collage materials and worked in groups to create some stunning pieces. Meanwhile the children in Year Two used their Forest Friends sessions to collect natural materials from the cabin and use them to create a series of beautiful Christmas decorations. The children painted and decorated pine cones in order to transform them into owls which were particularly stunning. There was more creativity on show in Hedgehogs as the children made their own baubles to hang on their class Christmas tree. Whilst more children helped to look after the goats, there was a sense of pride across Year three as the teachers shared some wonderful examples of their BFG homework projects. Down the corridor, the children in Sycamore investigated the phases of the moon by recreating then using Oreos which proved to be a tasty end to the day!
A Tree for Mr Kilpatrick!
It was an important day at Earls Hall today. The morning started with us being joined by Mrs Kilpatrick, the wife of our dearly missed former Assistant Site Manager Mr kilpatrick, as she accompanied the school council, house captains, head boy & girl, Mr B, Mrs C, Mr Geach and Mr Gheorge as they planted a tree on the field in memory of him. Mr B said a few words about how missed Mr kilpatrick is and how much he loved working at the school whilst each member of the group helped plant a flowering cherry tree. It was lovely to see Mrs Kilpatrick on such an important day. Thank you for giving us your time. Later, after school, the team took part in the first 'Jim Kilpatrick Bowling Tournament' where, because Mr Kilpatrick was a firm ten pin bowls fan, they played against each other in his name. Well done to Mr Martin who triumphed in the competition and was presented with the Jim Kilpatrick shield whilst Mrs Winder was presented with a fitting Mr Kilpatrick style t-shirt to mark her gaining the lowest score. Meanwhile, earlier in the day, our latest 'Reptile Club' saw the children investigate a salamander closely whilst more children from across KS1 enjoyed taking part in 'Construction Club'.
