Super Silver!
It was a super start to another week at Earls Hall as we celebrated the achievements in reading of children across the school in our latest 'Reading Champions' assembly! Today, as well as presenting bronze badges to children who had read over twenty five times at home, we presented smashing silver badges to children for the first time in recognition of reading a fabulous fifty times! We also presented our 'Earls Hall Stars' certificates for individual effort and achievement to children in each class as we didn't get the chance to on Friday due to the photographers being in the halls. Well done to all of the children rewarded today, we are proud of you! Later in the day Mrs Heard held another meeting with the school council. The children discussed which charity we would support as a school this year and looked at various different options before voting on a final choice. The children decided that they would support Havens and Little Havens and will spend the next couple of weeks feeding back to classes about their work. At 11am the whole school fell silent in recognition of Remembrance. Throughout the day the children in the Foundation Stage and KS1 investigated poppies and created paintings and collages of them.
Riveting River!
It was an interesting day for the children in Year Six today as the pupils took part in some 'River Workshops'. The children identified rivers around the world on some enormous maps before investigating the history of many of the rivers in our local area. It was a great opportunity to develop their understanding of every aspect of rivers in a fun and hands on manner and a great time was had by all. Meanwhile, in the downstairs hall, Mr Geach challenged the children in KS1 in a special assembly. The children have been learning about the adventures of 'The Jolly Postman' and identified all of the locations he has visited on his travels. At the end of the assembly the children were challenged to think of possible locations he could visit and then, back in the classroom, began thinking of questions they would need to find the answers to in order to plan his journey. Whilst more children helped Mrs Cox look after the farm animals, the children in Kites began investigating bread. The children taste tested a range of breads and described and evaluated them. Outside on the playground the children in Willow used our super new basketball hoops to develop their throwing, passing and shooting skills.
Moon Landing & Mindfulness!
It was a proud day for sport again at Earls Hall as Mr Smith took a team of children from across Years Five and Six to represent the school at the first round of the Southend schools basketball competition at Heycroft. The hosts at Heycroft were our first opponents where the match saw our players win 12.0. The team then beat Richmond 24.0 meaning that the team are through to the finals which are due to be held on the 29th November. Well done children, we are proud of you! Meanwhile, back in school, the children in Badgers and Kites took part in the first of four sessions of yoga and mindfulness delivered by the team at 'Kalma Kids'. The children took part in a series of moves and developed breathing techniques and a great time was enjoyed by all. In the afternoon we were visited by Mr Hawes who leads Year Seven and is responsible for transition over at Chase High. Mr Hawes met with Mr B and Mrs Crouch in order to gain an understanding of our wide and varied curriculum expectations across KS2. Thanks Mr Hawes for giving us your time. Later in the day the children in Sycamore took part in role playing an interview of Buzz Aldrin, Neil Armstrong and Michael Collins as part of their work investigating the events of the moon landing.  The interviewers carefully chose their 'probing' questions whilst the interviewees used their knowledge about the famous astronauts to give some well thought out answers. In 6J the children were applying the finishing touches to the houses that they designed based upon the story of Kensuke's Kingdom whilst the children in 6C were writing up their conclusions about their micro-organisms experiment.  They wrote about the observations of what had happened to the bread when left in different conditions.
Firework Fun!
It was a busy day at Earls Hall as the children returned back to school after the half term break as there was a theme of fireworks throughout the school. In the morning the children in the KS2 assembly Mr Brasted told the children all about the story of Guy Fawkes whilst, downstairs in Year Two, the children investigated their own gunpowder plot! The children related the plot to the story of Guy Fawkes, sequencing the events of his gunpowder plot and describing events in a series of pictures. Later in the day the children across KS1 and the Foundation Stage used paints, pastels and collage materials to create their own fireworks pictures with some stunning results. Meanwhile, in Sycamore, the children began investigating the wonders of space by using concept cards and justifying why they agreed or disagreed with the statements about the moon. Throughout the day there was plenty of musical activity as the day began with our KS1 recorder club, at lunchtime we held our first handbells club and in the afternoon the lovely Mrs Cook taught the first of our new weekly flute lessons.
Top of the Table!
It was an exciting end to the half term at Earls Hall! In the morning the children gathered together in the halls for our weekly 'Celebration Assemblies' where we presented children from each class with our 'Earls Hall Stars' certificates in recognition of individual effort and achievement. In the assemblies we also presented our latest 'Reading Champions' with their bronze badges. Well done to all of the children rewarded this morning, we are proud of you. There was plenty of creativity on show throughout the school as the day progressed. The children in Kestrels created leaves out of clay whilst the children in Elm continued to sew their underwater felt creatures. In Year Six the children put the finishing touches to their wooden shelters. It was a time for celebration as the day came to a close as both our boys and girls table tennis teams were crowned Essex champions, having spent the day competing over in Harlow. The teams played against the best other schools from across the county and played brilliantly. Congratulations children, we are proud of you!
Cracking Cross Country!
It was another day of wonderful effort and achievement for sport at Earls Hall today as a group of children from across KS2 represented the school at the Thorpe Hall cross country competition. The weather conditions were dreadful at times but this did not deter our runners from adopting a growth mindset and giving the competition their very best. All the runners represented the school brilliantly, with the Year four boys and girls and the Year six boys coming an overall first place! A run down of all the runners placings will feature in this weeks newsletter. Well done to all of the children, we are proud of you! Meanwhile, back in school, the children in Kites enjoyed a creative afternoon as they created their own leaves out of clay. The children used a range of tools and mark making techniques to recreate their 2D drawings of leaves, complete with their various patterns, in clay. Downstairs in Year Two the children's party planning skills came to fruition as they held a birthday party for Goldilocks. The children created and played games, made banners and cards and spent time writing birthday messages for her. The parties went with a bang and a great time was enjoyed by all! In the Foundation Stage the children were convinced that the changeable weather outside would lead to them seeing rainbows but, even though none appeared, they decided to paint some of their own anyway- arching the array of colours using paints independently.
Hoorah for Harvest!
It was another busy day at Earls Hall today as we opened our doors to the families of Year Three who all came along to help celebrate harvest. The children from Hawks, Kestrels and Kites were watched by proud parents and other family members as they performed their harvest assembly. The children all showed great confidence when speaking and singing their way through the assembly and a sense of pride swept through the upstairs hall. Thanks to everyone who made it along to watch. well done children, we are proud of you! Meanwhile, the children in Year Two used their 'Forest Friends' session to classify different varieties of trees. The children went on a leaf hunt where they matched varieties according to their appearance and then shared their findings to the rest of the group. There was more outside activity as Mrs Cox was joined by more children who helped her undertake some of the daily farming tasks needed to be carried out in order to look after the animals. Later, at lunchtime, the gates to the goat enclosure were once again opened to children who wished to spend some quiet time with our four legged friends. At the end of the afternoon Mr B was lucky enough to hear some wonderful readers in his office, today from Woodpeckers. Well done children, you made Mr B's day!
Family Foundation Fun!
It was a morning full of family fun today at Earls Hall as the children in the Foundation Stage classes were joined by a host of parents who came into school in order to find out about how the curriculum is organised. The parents gathered in the hall where the teachers spoke about our Early Years philosophy and how this is reflected in the teaching which takes place in the classrooms. The children then went down to Dormice, Hedgehogs and Robins in order to play and learn alongside their children through a range of activities before they regrouped in the hall to hear about how to support this philosophy at home. It was a fantastic morning, thanks to all of the parents who gave us their time. Meanwhile, elsewhere in school, Mrs Cox was joined by a group of children from Elms who undertook some of the essential farm jobs needed to be carried out to look after the animals. The children swept out the goats and cleaned out the hen house to a high standard! Later in the day, the children in 6C used glue guns to develop their wooden structures whilst the children in Sycamore inserted electrical circuits into their 'Witches' frames and the children in Oak continued sewing their felt underwater creatures.
PE & Party Time!
It was a bit of a rainy start to another week at Earls Hall but, despite the damp day, inside the school was a hive of activity! The morning began with more children helping Mrs Cox look after the goats who, not being fans of the rain, were keen to stay in their stable. Meanwhile, inside, the children in Owls planned a party for Goldilocks. The children created decorations and created lists and invites: all essential to ensure the party goes with a bang! Later in the day the children in Squirrels developed their cutting skills and created repeated patterns whilst the children in Dormice created their own board games. The children drew the boards, ensuring that the numbers were in the correct order, before rolling the die and counting along the squares. In Woodpeckers the children investigated real life heroes and identified ways for them to travel whilst, in the downstairs hall, the children in Badgers developed their rolling skills in PE. At the end of the school day we held the first day of our learning conferences where parents, children and teachers met to discuss progress and targets whilst, over in the Woodland Diner, the children in the KS2 'After School Club' decorated biscuits and played table tennis and pool.
