It was a busy start to the first festive day at Earls Hall. There was much excitement in the air as Mr Gheorge and Mr Town put up this years Christmas trees around the school. The trees were once again chosen by Mrs Frost and Mrs Jones- thank you for spending so much time getting the best possible trees for the children. After school the team spent time decorating the trees until they looked beautiful ready for the children to see in the morning.
Earlier in the day the children in both KS1 and KS2 spent their assembly time rewarding our latest ‘Reading Champions’ with their bronze and silver badges in recognition of reading twenty five and fifty times respectively. Well done to all of the children presented with badges today, we are proud of you!
The children in Year Four acted as code breakers this morning as they used Roman numerals transferred to letters in order to work out hidden texts. Later in the day the children in Aspen investigated the life of Queen Boudica whilst the children in Elm began an investigation into evaporation. Meanwhile the children in Oak used their RE lesson to investigate how some faiths believe in reincarnation.
Outside, the children in the Foundation stage used their ‘Forest Friends’ sessions to build miniature shelters for Chip the chipmunk using sticks and leaves as well as large scale dens which they made with tarpaulin with support from adults. The children then used the shelters to act out stories with puppets.
