It was a busy start to the week at Earls Hall today, particularly for the children in Foundation Stage and KS1, as the classes took part in a ‘People who help Us’ day where they found out about a range of careers from volunteers in our community.
Throughout the day the children were visited by a range of visitors who told them about their jobs. They found out about the work of fire fighters, police officers, dog groomers, dietitians, psychologists, nurses, counselors, physiotherapists and conservation arbortists.
The children were able to ask lots of questions to the volunteers, try out some of their equipment and wear some of their uniforms and a great time was had by all. The day gave our youngest children a great insight into the world of work. Thanks to everyone who gave us their time.
At the beginning of the day Mr B was joined by the children in KS1 in a singing assembly. With the help of a range of eager volunteers who demonstrated the actions, the children sang along to some of their favourite songs. Later in the morning, in the KS2 assembly, Mr B talked about the importance of talking. The children thought about how picking up the phone to speak to a relative can brighten their day, how sharing a worry with an adult can be important and keep us safe and how sharing a joke with a friend can lift peoples spirits.
After school we held our latest ‘Reptile Club’ where the children got up close and personal with lizards and snakes!
