It was a fun end to the week at Earls Hall as the children helped support Comic Relief by taking part in the ‘Red Nose Day’ celebrations. Children and staff came into school dressed in red with some donning weird and wacky hair or accessories. The children all enjoyed taking part and their donations meant that the school raised a brilliant £336. Well done to everyone!
The morning saw the children take part in their usual ‘Celebration Assemblies’ where Mr B and Mr Geach presented individual children from each class with ‘Earls Hall Stars’ certificates for their efforts and achievements. There were also certificates for times table and reading achievements. Well done children, we are proud of you!
The day also saw some magnificent gymnastics on display as Mrs Ludlam accompanied a group of children from Years Three and Four as they represented the school at the Southend Gymnastics competition. The day involved performing solo routines involving splits, cartwheels and press ups. Each child had two turns at the vault and worked well as a team by encouraging each other to aim high. This was the first time that Earls Hall had entered the competition and they came a respectable seventh place. Well done to all of the children who represented the school, we are proud of you!
In the afternoon there was some excitement for the children in Rabbits and Foxes as they gathered together to hear the news that Mr and Mrs Geach are expecting a baby in September! The teachers shared their baby scan photo on the interactive whiteboard and to say the children were excited would be somewhat of an understatement. Congratulations to the Geaches from all in the Earls Hall community!
At the end of the afternoon Mr B was lucky to hear children read in his office, today from Foxes. He was thrilled by their progress. Well done children! After school the field was used to end the week with a football match between Earls Hall and Prince Avenue. The children demonstrated great team work, losing 3-1. Well done boys we are proud of you!
