It was another busy day at Earls Hall! The day saw the children in Year Two use their ‘Forest Friends’ sessions with Miss Chandler to create some magnificent mobiles from a range of natural materials. The children used their developing tool skills to drill holes in conkers and tie them onto string alongside discs of wood, pine cones and leaves. By the end of the day there was an array of mobiles hanging around the base camp log circle!
In the afternoon a host of children from across KS2 represented the school at this years cross country inter-schools competition. All of the teachers who were at the event were proud as punch of the children as each and every one of them tried their very best and represented the school beautifully. There were lots of high placements, most notable for Zoe and Jack who came first and Zach who came third. Well done to all of our runners, we are proud of you!
In the Foundation Stage there was plenty of action. Outside, in the Early Years garden, the children built their own restaurant out of building blocks which they later used to role play, with some taking on the role of the kitchen staff and others acting as customers. Inside Dormice the children were read ‘The Tiger Who Came to Tea’ and, inspired by the story,decided to make their own tiger masks.
Upstairs in willow the children investigated different ways to separate different solutions whilst the children in Year Two enjoyed their library sessions, spending time reading for pleasure.
At the end of the afternoon we were visited by Mr Dobson, our large animal vet, who came to give the goats their booster injections. Mr Dobson was joined by a group of children from Badgers so that they could ask him questions about his work as he carried out his visit.
