Perfect Portraits!
It was another busy day at Earls Hall today! The children in Year Two were inspired by the work of Giuseppe Arcimboldo in their 'Forest Friends' sessions and used frames and a range of natural objects found in the woods and foraged from the cabin to create their own portraits. By the end of each session the floor was adorned with a host of amazing works of art, each with an individual personality shining through! Meanwhile, away from school, Mr Smith and Mr Dorn accompanied a group of children from Year Six as they took part in the Southend tag rugby competition. The team finished joint first in their group by beating Blenheim, Heycroft and Thorpe Hall and drawing with Greenways. In the 'Super 10's' the team beat Chalkwell, Bourenmouth Park and Heycroft but lost to West Leigh. In the semi final the team beat Greenways 5.3 but lost to West Leigh meaning that they now qualify to take part in the Essex finals in March. Well done children, we are proud of you! Back at home, the children from Aspen took part in their community clean up session where they collected litter as a class from around the surrounding roads of the school whilst in the Foundation Stage the children enjoyed another busy day of activity! Lots of children enjoyed acting out their own 'Letters & Sounds' sessions inside whilst others played in the Early Years Garden or role played with the dolls. There was more animal action over by the chicken and duck enclosure as more children joined Mr B to feed the birds and collect eggs from the hen house.
Community Clean Up!
The litter picking craze currently sweeping through Earls Hall continued to take pace today as children from Year Four took part in a community clean up! Armed with gloves and litter picking equipment, the children from Elm and Oak took to the surrounding roads of the school in order to collect as much rubbish as possible. The children then looked at the litter and discovered that the largest amount of waste was plastic based. Well done to all of the children involved! Meanwhile, back inside, the children in Hedgehogs were visited by Mrs Rick and Mabel the school dog. the children have recently shown an interest in pets and so today they asked Mrs rick lots of questions about our puppy in order to find out how to look after her. This resulted in lots of pictures and mark making based on Mabel as well as some doggy role play! Upstairs in 6M the children used hand saws to cut wood to size to be used in their structure making project whilst outside the children in Year One developed their hammering skills in 'Forest Friends' using a pumpkin, hammer and golf tees.
Wet Start to the Week!
It may have been a soggy start to the week at Earls Hall but it was also a busy one! The morning started with Mr B using the theme of the rain as a stimulus for the KS1 assembly. Mr B explained that when he was young his home used to suffer power cuts and the children realised that this would mean that they would have to entertain themselves without a tv, console or the internet. The children were challenged to think of things that they could do at home if it was too wet to go outdoors and there was no power. By the end of the assembly the children had decided that they could paint a picture, create some junk modelling, complete a jigsaw, read a book, write a story or build a den! Later, in the KS2 assembly, the children were joined by Mr Foster and a group of representatives from Chase High who came to talk to them about being resilient when facing challenges. The pupils told the children personal accounts of when they were involved in challenging situations and how they gained strength by facing them. The children were also inspired as the pupils sang and performed musical instruments for them. Thank you Mr Foster and pupils for giving us your time. Just before the lunch Mrs Heard met with the new members of the School Council. At the meeting the members discussed their expectations for the year ahead and clarified what their role on the council involves before thinking of agenda items for the next session. As the day progressed, the children in Year One were building landmarks which they saw when they went out on their local walk whilst in foxes the children investigated ways to soak up water. In Badgers the children used their PE lesson to create shapes using the apparatus whilst the children in Kites developed their ability to write sentences which included semi colons. In Beech the children investigated reversible and irreversible changes whilst the children in Owls designed their own wrapping paper which they will create using printing techniques.
Fantastic Friday!
It was a great end to another week at Earls Hall as the children gathered together in the morning to take part in our weekly 'Celebration Assemblies'. Earls Hall Stars certificates were presented to individuals from each KS1 and KS2 class for effort and achievement. There were also rewards for times tables and certificates for children who took part in the Summer library challenge. Later in the day, lots of children visited the goats for a play or cuddle whilst the children in 6J and 6C created their own self portraits which they used to identify the features of the face in French. Throughout the day a team of girls from upper KS2 represented the school at the emerging football tournament where they played against teams from across the town. Altogether the team played seven matches: winning four and drawing three. Team work was on display throughout the day and all of their hard work paid off as they were named as the overall winners of the day! Well done children, we are proud of you!
Painting, PTA & Postman’s Walk!
It was another fantastic day at Earls Hall! The day began with the children in Year Five investigating the properties of 3D shapes whilst the children in Year One continued to investigate the work of the Jolly Postman. The children from Rabbits, Woodpeckers and Squirrels used the map which Dan the postman gave them yesterday in order to follow a route around the surrounding streets of the school. Whilst on the walk the children identified landmarks to place on the map and took photos of them to look back at when back in the classroom. Road safety was key and the children were supported by lots of helpful parents and grandparents, thanks so much for giving us your time! Meanwhile, back in school, Mrs Cox worked with groups of children to carry out jobs with the farm animals. Gaining a sense of the responsibility needed to look after animals, the children swept out the goat enclosure and cleaned out the chickens, bantams and ducks. Later in the day, the children in Oaks spent time in the afternoon developing their sewing skills whilst the children in Year Two used paint to create a spectrum of tones and shade. In the evening the PTA held their annual general meeting where they reflected on their work over the previous year. Mrs Bates and Mrs Welling were re-elected as co-chairs. It was a time for celebration as the committee heard that the grand total of funds raised for the school over the previous twelve months was over £28,000! Thanks to everyone on the committee for their wonderful work and to all of our lovely families for supporting the work of the PTA!
The Park & the Postman!
It was a busy day for the children at school and for those in Year Six who ventured out on a trip. The children from Year Six took part in a curriculum enrichment day at Thorndon Country Park linked to their work on the text Kensuke's Kingdom and their topic of shelters and survival. The day was split into three activities: the children learnt how to scavenge for supplies in the forest in order to build shelters. Next they used a flint and spark to make a small, controlled fire with cotton wool as the fuel. Jerry, the park ranger, showed the children how to build the fire up gently so that it did not go out. All of the children enjoyed the geocaching activity; they used devices to follow compass directions so that they could discover clues around the park. It was a great day, enjoyed by all! Meanwhile, back in school, the children in Year One used their English lesson to continue investigating the text 'The Jolly Postman' by meeting a postman in real life! The children were visited by Postman Dan and composed their own series of questions which they wrote down in order to find out about his job. Dan asked the children to guess the prices of stamps and revealed that he had 420 homes on his delivery round. All the children had the chance to hold his postal bag and investigate a map of the local area that he gave them to use on their walk tomorrow! In the KS1 assembly Mrs Sterling told the children ll about Yom Kippur whilst, upstairs in Beech, the children investigated symbols found on ordnance survey maps. After school Mrs Cheema hosted another fabulous cooking club whilst Mrs Riley held another enjoyable 'Love on the Rocks' club.
Den Making & Dog Walking!
It was a great day for the children in Year One today as they worked in teams during their 'Forest Friends' sessions in order to create a series of magnificent large scale dens! The children put their best knot tying skills to the test as they fastened large branches together to make constructions which they then attached tarpaulin to in order to protect them from the elements. It was a great challenge which each and every child rose to! Meanwhile, as Mabel the dog was taken for a walk by several groups of children, Mrs Cox was joined by a series of children in order to carry out tasks with the farm animals. Some children helped her change the pond water in the duck enclosure whilst others swept the goats enclosure so that it was clean and tidy. There was more tidying on show as children from Year Five volunteered their time at lunchtime in order to take part in an impromptu litter sweep. The children did a sterling job, well done children we are proud of you! In the afternoon a group of children from Year Five and Six represented the school as they took part in a series of friendly football games against our friends at Chalkwell Junior School. All of the children played well and showed great team spirit throughout the afternoon. Well done children, we are proud of you! In the evening the downstairs hall played host to our second 'Growth Mindset' information session for parents. The parents heard from the teachers all about ways we are encouraging children to adopt a growth mindset in school and how this can be supported at home. Thanks to everyone who came along for the session.
Hands, Hunting & Horticulture!
It was a busy start to the week at Earls Hall. The morning began with the children in the KS1 assembly focusing on kind hands. The children worked together to identify all of the kind things which could be achieved with hands: from practical activities to symbols and signs created with fingers. Mr B helped the children think of ways in which hands could be used in ways which are not acceptable in school and every pupil agreed that they would not be seen in school. Later in the day, the children in the Foundation Stage enjoyed taking part in a scavenger hunt as part of their second 'Forest Friends' session. The children were challenged by Miss Chandler to search the woods to locate and retrieve a series of natural objects, allowing them to show their ability to follow instructions outside whilst also exploring each and every part of the outdoor area. Whilst Mrs Cox was supported by groups of children to clean the goat enclosure, Mr B was joined by a group of children from Oaks to plant up the plant boxes which were recently positioned by their classroom door. The children helped him dig holes, teased out roots and planted them as a team to create a much greener welcome for the children each morning. Meanwhile, out on the playground, the children in 6M developed their hockey skills whilst, inside, the children in Beech investigated which materials acted as insulators.
Stars of the Week!
There was a theme of celebrating as we said farewell to another week at Earls Hall! In our two simultaneous 'Celebration Assemblies' our 'Earls Hall Stars' were presented to individual children from each class for effort and achievement. There were also lots of 'Times Table Rock Stars' certificates presented in the downstairs assembly whilst, upstairs, the children in Year Six were presented with their 'Bikeability' badges. Later in the day the weeks 'Learning Ambassadors' met with Mrs Irwin, one of our school governors, to tell her all about the learning which had been taking place across the school whilst the children in Sycamore began creating their 'Witches' frames and the children in Elm developed a range of stitching techniques.
