Thank you to our Year 4 children and our school choir for our annual Christmas concert with St James' Church. Wonderful singing, readings, poems and acting! Thank you to parents/carers for such a big turn out!
Congratulations to our runners up in the Christmas Card Competition organised by Emma Reynolds, MP for Wolverhampton North East.
They were awarded a special certificate during assembly.
Well done! We are extremely proud of you!
Children from across Elston Hall Multi Academy Trust joined together to perform at this year's city-wide 'Diversity event'.
Pupils from Elston Hall, Edward the Elder and Palmers Cross danced, and were joined by singers from Goldthorn Park. The 35 children wowed audiences at Aldesley Stadium during the performance on Friday (23rd November) night.
Around 20 schools performed at the event altogether, and were watched by staff and parents.
Elston's performance was to the song 'Happier' by Marshmello and Bastille.
9th November 2018
The day started with a wonderful, moving assembly performed by our Year 6 children to commemorate Remembrance Day. Children spent the day creating art work, writing poems, making monuments or making poppy biscuits so they could learn about and understand the significance of the day. Some of our children had the opportunity to attend the Wolverhampton Schools Remembrance Service and marched through the city centre alongside veterans and soldiers. All the children have contributed to our wonderful school display in the entrance hall.
On Friday 5th October 2018 Elston Hall was 80 years old!
We had an amazing day celebrating, sharing memories with ex pupils and recreating school life in the 1930's for our current children. Thank you very much to our 80 year old visitors who fascinated the children with their memories of school life!
Year 5 hosted a fantastic Harvest assembly. Thank you for all of your kind donations, they are very much appreciated. This year we will be donating the food to the Little Brothers of the Good Shepherd who do lots of great work for the city’s homeless people!
Thank you to everybody for your continued support.
Zaara from Year 4 took to the stage at Wolverhampton Grand Theatre after winning part of a regional competition. Zaara drew an advert for local firm ERA as part of the Express & Star 'Design an Ad Competition.' Her design was the winning one chosen from all the other Elston Hall entries. Zaara was presented with her entry framed, a certificate and a Waterstones voucher at the ceremony on July 3rd. ERA also gave Zaara and her family an annual pass for the Black Country Museum and a goody bag. Elston Hall won a cheque for £50. Other winners from across the region also won prizes for their winning entries for adverts for other local companies. Well done Zaara!

Year 4 welcomed the Fire service to inform us about fire safety. We learnt what we should do to prevent a fire such as fitting smoke alarms and closing our doors when we go to bed. Also we learnt what to do if we were in a situation where fire was present.
On 22nd January, twenty-one dancers from three Trust schools (Elston Hall, Palmers Cross and Edward the Elder Primary Schools) competed in the regional heats of the Great Big Dance Off at Birmingham's Alexandra Theatre. Pupils performed their dance 'Faded', choreographed beautifully by dance teacher Miss Jones. Pupils worked extremely hard to perfect the dance and produced a stunning performance! Despite not getting a place in the final, staff and parents are extremely proud of how well pupils performed. More importantly, it has been wonderful to see friendships blossom between pupils from different Trust schools. Well done dancers - you were outstanding and did us all proud!
The first trip of 2018 and what an amazing trip it was! The choir were lucky enough-yet again-to attend Young Voices at the Genting Arena in Birmingham, where they joined 6,000 other children in an incredible performance for friends and family. The performances were brilliant and the atmosphere was truly electric! The children have been working hard since September to learn many new songs and it was lovely to see them enjoy the night and join in with other schools. A massive thank you to parents who were able to join us in the evening and joined in the fun and entertainment of the night. A truly magical and spectacular night had by all! Well done Choir!
Pupils across Elston Hall added some festive cheer to local care homes for the elderly by making Christmas cards for residents. Each year group designed a card which were then delivered to homes across the city. We hope everyone in the Wolverhampton area enjoy a very Merry Christmas.
