It was a busy day for the children in Year One as they ventured out of school in order to take part in a walk around the local area. On the walk the children visited places Traction Man had saved someone which had been identified on a map to follow. Being a helpful sort of hero, Traction Man also sent the children clues to answer and short stories explaining how he saved the day using his super hero powers in the local area. The children were extremely well behaved and came back to school to start creating a recount map. This week children will use their map to write their own recount in the past tense and they will use sentence starters, such as one day and a little later.
Meanwhile, back in school, the children in Year Six took part in a discussion centred around how the children who were evacuated during the war must have felt whilst the children in Oak continued to create their Lowry figures and the children in Year Three learnt all about the act of smelting.
In Dormice the children learnt about Chinese New Year and made their own Chinese lamps whilst in Hedgehogs some children showed an interest in puppetry and so made their own shadow puppets and theatre, lighting it up with a back light.
There was more sporting pride on display as a group of children from Year Three and Four represented the school in the Southend schools hockey competition. The team started superbly winning two and drawing one of there first three games before losing the next two games by one goal. When the scores were all tallied up it was very close…… Earls Hall finished third and were very unlucky not to win it. The children were over the moon to come home with a bronze medal. Mr smith thought that they were brilliant throughout the competition. Well done children, we are proud of you!
