It was a fantastic and fun end to the week for the children in Year Six as they enjoyed some well deserved play time at Priory Park. Having undertaken their statutory SATs tests this week, the children were rewarded for their hard work with a morning of games. Some children played rounders whilst others enjoyed games of quick cricket. Others enjoyed tennis matches whilst some children simply spent time relaxing by playing card games, chatting or colouring. In the afternoon the fun continued as the children were treated to anything they wanted from an ice cream van on the playground and the down time continued. The children have all tried their best this week and we could not be more proud of them.
Meanwhile, back in school, the pride continued as the children from Foundation Stage to Year Five enjoyed two simultaneous ‘Celebration Assemblies’. Certificates were presented to our ‘Earls Hall Stars’ for individual effort and achievement, our times table achievements and reading race rewards. Well done to all of the children presented with certificates today, we are proud of you!
In the morning the School Council met with Mrs Geach where they discussed ways to help children’s mental health whilst the Green Team met with Miss Neal where they planned their ‘Around the World Green Day’ and agreed to implement a new crisp bag recycling initiative in the Woodland Diner.
As the day progressed, the children in Year One made churches out of junk modelling materials whilst the children in year Four created their own Viking long houses.
At the end of the afternoon our new KS2 Deputy Headteacher, Mrs Crouch, visited the chickens for the first time with a group of children from Kites. Mrs Crouch was introduced to our feathered friends and in next to no time was enjoying plenty of cuddles with them. Meanwhile, back in school, the weeks ‘Learning Ambassadors’ met with Mrs Irwin, one of our school governors, where they told her all about the learning which had taken place across the school.
After school our PTA held a ‘Cake & Uniform Sale’ in the Woodland Diner where our supportive families raised a brilliant £274. Thanks to everyone who made or donated cakes, bought them or ran the sale.
