Rising to the Challenge!
It has been an eventful few days at Earls Hall, both at home and away at the Year Five PGL residential trip! In school, our newest children in the Foundation Stage have settled into school beautifully and, having gradually been with us for mornings only, today enjoyed their first full day with us. The children had a smashing day, playing both in the classroom and out in the Early Years garden. Meanwhile, over at the PGL trip, the children rose to challenge after challenge! They took part in a series of brilliant activities including abseiling, tunneling, Jacobs ladder, archery, raft building and the giant swing! Teamwork was key and the children motivated and encouraged each other time after time. There were countless comments about how wonderfully behaved the children were and a great time was had by all!
Full Foundation Stage!
It was a fabulous day at Earls Hall today as we welcomed our fifth, and final, group of new Foundation Stage starters into the classrooms. The children took part in the usual tour of key areas of the school before they familiarised themselves with their new surroundings and played alongside their new friends. It was smashing to see the classes full with children, all enjoying themselves and looking very comfortable. Meanwhile, as more children helped Mrs Cox care for the farm animals, the children in year Four developed their understanding of column addition whilst Mr B heard some fantastic readers in his office; today from Woodpeckers. Well done children, Mr B was very proud of you! In the KS1 morning assembly the children sang along with Mr B and his guitar where he was accompanied by some volunteers who helped lead the actions to some of their favourite songs. In the afternoon a group of children from 6M helped Mabel, our school puppy, with her training schedule. The children took Mabel for a walk around the roads of the school where they helped her sit at the side of the road before crossing and gave her plenty of praise when she followed their command.
Good Manners Cost Nothing!
It was another busy start to the week at Earls Hall! The morning began for the children in KS2 with an assembly focusing on the importance of showing good manners. Mr B talked to the children about making positive first impressions by displaying good manners and the children worked with talk partners to think of different ways that they could do this. They talked about the importance of saying 'please' and 'thank you' as well as saying 'excuse me' and 'I beg your pardon'. The assembly then highlighted ways to show good manners at lunchtime, including not talking with a mouth full of food, and Mr B reminded the children about being invited to dine at the centre table of the Woodland Diner when these manners are spotted. Meanwhile, the Foundation Stage classes were a little fuller than last week as we welcomed another group of new starters. The children spent time exploring the school before playing alongside their brand new friends, both inside the classrooms and outside on the decking. It was lovely to see the children settle into their first day so beautifully! Later in the day, the children in 6C took to their bikes on the playground as they took part in the first of their 'Bikeability' sessions whilst, out on the field, Mr smith worked with the children in Sycamore to develop their overarm throwing skills before they returned to the classroom to focus on ways to describe musical styles in French. . Back inside, the children in Beech investigated soluble materials. Outside in the goat area the children helped care for the animals by feeding them and cleaning out their stable and, at the end of the day, some of our parents also took the opportunity to pop in and say hello. Meanwhile, also after school, Miss Childs hosted the KS1 drama club in the downstairs hall.
House Captains, Head Boy & Head Girl!
It was a fabulous end to the first full week of the academic year at Earls Hall! The morning saw the children celebrate the achievements and efforts of individual children from each class in our two simultaneous 'Celebration Assemblies' where we presented the weeks 'Earls Hall Stars'. Well done to all of the children rewarded today, we are proud of you! In the assemblies Mr B had the honour of introducing the years house captains, Head Boy and Head Girl to the children. The children congratulated the captains for Warwick, Arundel, Oxford and Norfolk, who will be presented with their badges in an up and coming presentation evening, before our Head Boy and Head Girl were presented with their special badges. The children will undertake key duties throughout the year and will act as role models for the rest of the school. Well done children, we are proud of you. Meanwhile, the Foundation Stage classes were a little fuller today as we welcomed the third of our groups of new starters to Dormice, Hedgehogs and Robins. The children toured the school, visiting key areas such as the farm animals, the office, the hall, toilets and Mr B's office where they met George the tortoise. They then spent the morning getting to know their new friends and a lot of fun was had by all! Throughout the day more and more children visited the goats, chickens and ducks in order to undertake important or jobs or simply have fun with them. Geraldine, Gerald and Gordon are becoming friendlier by the day and are enjoying their regular visits throughout the day. In the afternoon Mrs Irwin, one of the school governors, met with the weeks 'Learning Ambassadors' where she found out all about the learning which has been taking place across the school since Monday. Mr Dorn worked in the downstairs hall with groups of children playing new aged kurling before the same hall played host to the first session of our 'Superhero Club'.
Thrilling Thursday!
There was more fun in the Foundation Stage classrooms today as the classes were joined by their second groups of new starters. The children all enjoyed a morning of fun as they explored their new surroundings and got to know their new teachers and play mates. The children investigated the school by visiting the animals, the toilets, the office ladies, the hall and Mr B in his office. There was plenty of time to play and a great morning was had by all. Meanwhile it was an exciting day in Year Six as Mr B had the pleasure of appointing this years house captains, Head Boy and Head Girl. Each house has a boy and girl captain who were chosen for displaying all of the Earls Hall qualities consistently. Once the children had been informed that they had been chosen they each phoned their parents from Mr B's office so that they could share their wonderful news. Our Head Girl and Head Boy had their parents called into the office at the end of the day so that the news could be shared in person. The house captains and Head Boy and Head Girl will be presented with their special badges in assembly tomorrow and will begin their duties from Monday. The rest of Year six were informed that all of the prefect projects which Mr B had received had been successful and parents will receive details of a presentation ceremony via a letter tomorrow. In order to be a prefect the children had to submit a proposed project which they needed to complete over the Summer holiday which reflected the Earls Hall qualities. They then had to present their project in a manner of their choice and there were some stunning projects submitted which clearly demonstrated how much effort the children had put into their tasks. Well done children, we are proud of you! After school the downstairs hall hosted karate club whilst the upstairs hall saw the return of our carpet bowls club.
First of The Foundation!
It was an exciting day today at Earls Hall today as we welcomed the first group of our new Foundation Stage children into school! The first group of Robins, Dormice and Hedgehogs spent the morning playing in their classrooms and each went and explored the school; visiting Mr B in his office, the farm animals, the hall, office and toilets. It was a lovely first morning and we can't wait to welcome the rest of the children, group by group, in the coming days. Meanwhile, the children in Year Six took part in a fantastic architecture workshop throughout the day when they joined 'Architectural Workshop' in the upstairs hall for a construction challenge! ‘Architecture Workshops’ are hands-on fun educational activities for all Key Stages and abilities. They are designed to enhance the national curriculum and to communicate the art and experience of architecture, art, and design. Each child was challenged by Vivienne, the team leader, to build a tetrahedron using canes and elastic bands independently before working as a group to construct one on a larger scale. Throughout the activity the children had to continually assess their work and make changes to improve it accordingly by working together, enhancing their team building qualities. The children were then challenged to think of shelters to construct which would be suitable for a variety of habitats. The challenge was designed to apply skills developed in design technology, maths and science and the workshop worked to stimulate our pupil’s imagination, interpretative and visual problem solving skills helping to develop higher order thinking skills. Throughout the day different groups of children took turns to work with the farm animals. Some children cleaned out the bantams whilst others fed the goats and changed some of the ducks pond water. The animals are growing used to the children now and are more than happy to be visited and even cuddled! Meanwhile, Mr B had a lovely time listening to children from Woodpeckers read in his office. The children read with confidence and made Mr B really proud! After the school there was lots of activities taking place as we hosted more of our new clubs. Mr Cole hosted his new Star Sports football club on the field and Mr Smith held the first of his tag rugby club. Netball club took place on the playground whilst, inside, Mr Geach hosted the first of his country dancing club whilst our KS2 'Love on the Rocks' and cooking club took place in the Year four classrooms.
Music & Mucking Out!
It was another full day of fun at Earls Hall today! The morning began with the children in the KS1 assembly taking part in a singing assembly with Mr B on his trusty guitar. A number of volunteers helped by leading the singing and actions at the front of the hall as the children sang some of their favourite songs. Throughout the day more children joined Mrs Cox and Mrs Timpson as they looked after the farm animals. Today saw one group take on the job of cleaning out the chicken coop; a key responsibility needed to be carried out on a weekly basis, and the children loved helping out! Later a group of well behaved children were chosen to take Mabel, the school puppy, for a walk. Mabel is still learning the expectations of a walk so the children acted really sensibly in order to help her stay calm. Well done to all of the children, we are proud of you! Meanwhile, in the Forest Room, the first 'Rock Steady Workshop' took place where the children were joined by Gordon the new rock teacher. The sound of electric guitars, keyboards, and drums mixed with vocals echoed down the corridor. Outside on the playground 6J continued with their Bikeability course which this afternoon saw some of the children take to the local roads whilst inside, in Year Two, the bicycle theme continued as the children used charcoal to create some stunning pictures of Mrs Armitage's bike. After school the first of the terms KS1 'Reptile Clubs' took place where the children loved getting up close and personal with the animals.
Friendship & Farmers!
It was a busy, if a little wet, first day of the week. The morning began with the children in the KS1 assembly focusing on ways to ensure that everyone experiences enjoyable playtimes. Mr B was supported by a number of volunteers who helped him act out scenarios from the playground. The children were reminded that if they ever found themselves without someone to play with then they should go to the friendship bench where it is everyone's responsibility to invite them to play. All of the  children agreed to abide by the system before thinking of a list of games which, when played, would result in everybody enjoying themselves. Meanwhile, Mrs Cox and Mrs Timpson were joined by groups of pupils as they helped carry out jobs in the farm enclosures. The children made sure that Gordon, Gerald and Geraldine the goats had dry straw in the stable and were fed and watered. They also collected eggs from the chickens, cleaned out and fed the Giant African Snails and fed the ducks. Out on the playground the drizzly weather didn't stop the children in 6J enjoying their first 'Bikeability' session where they took to the playground to demonstrate their cycling skills. Meanwhile more children enjoyed sessions in our new KS2 library whilst Miss Brooker hosted a PGL information session for Year Five parents in the upstairs hall. After school Mr Cann hosted the first of his percussion orchestra club where the sound of music echoed down thew corridor.
Personal Bests!
It was a busy end to the first week back at school on Friday. The morning assemblies in both key stages focused on how to improve on personal bests by trying again and again. Mr B talked about his love of drawing but explained that he had tried hard to develop his skills over time, not always getting it right on every occasion but improving over the years. He demonstrated how his drawings of rabbits had changed and improved since he was a child and shared the various stages of development that they had gone through. He explained that in order to improve he needed to try and add detail every time and take on board the work of more experienced artists as he went along. One of the important messages of the assemblies was that it didn't matter if other people seemed to be better at drawing as he progressed provided that he beat his own personal best over time. Meanwhile, more and more children tied ribbons onto the giant yeti as a symbol their commitment to adopting the 'I can't yet' approach to learning whilst classes continued to visit the animals in their enclosures.
