Our Year Four spelling team had a wonderful time on November 25th when they attended the Spell-it Challenge at Wolverhampton girls high.
Tarun, Vegnita, Barney and Deb competed in the quiz against nine other schools. The rounds included anagrams, compound words, finding hidden words and dictionary order.
 
All four children did us proud, not just showing their fabulous English talents but also with their wonderful manners and behaviour whilst representing Elston Hall. We are proud of them all.

Year 2 had a fantastic day at RAF Cosford and all children thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The children experimented with different materials to make a parachute. We then tested which material made the most effective parachute and children were full of excitement when dropping them from a height. Children experienced sitting in a cockpit and had many questions about what it must be like to fly a plane. We were very proud of Year 2 children and their impeccable behaviour during the day. All children were a real credit to Elston Hall.

Year 5 absolutely loved their 'out of this world' day at the National Space Centre, Leicester.
The children had time to look around the centre and take in all of the interesting facts including visiting the rocket tower. They also watched a fantastic show in the planetarium - finding out what it takes to become an astronaut. The highlight of the day, was taking part in a Mars Rover Workshop, programming a lego rover to complete different missions such as going around a piece of 'Mars rock' and getting close to alien life. We were very proud of Year 5's super behaviour during the day! Everyone had a fantastic day!

Year 6 have had a fantastic day at Cadbury learning about how Cadbury’s have changed over time. We enjoyed our tour of the factory, tasting chocolate, seeing how chocolate is made and even had a ride on a little chocolate cart. The 4D experience was brilliant - lots of screams on the ‘rollercoaster’! We still had plenty of time for some fun on the park. Finally, a Mayan talk to aid our thematic learning made us ask some fantastic questions.

Year 1 absolutely loved their day at the Think Tank in Birmingham. The day was filled with learning, fun, excitement and laughter. The children were engaged throughout the Amazing Bodies Workshop , their time in the Science Garden, MiniBrum and lots more! The Science Garden was certainly packed full of surprises and fun activities. One of the hi-lights was MiniBrum, an interactive child-sized city where the children are in charge! We were very proud of Year 1's impeccable behaviour during the day!

School Councillors and Deputies had a fantastic day out at Mount Pleasant School Farm today. They received a warm welcome from Idris, Nina and Nicky and they immediately got to work!
Group 1 were in charge of prepping the vegetable soup for lunch learning how to use the 'claw' and 'bridge' grip when chopping carrots, leeks, tomatoes, onions, runner beans and cabbages. Group 2 were in charge of prepping the fruit salad for pudding which included chopping strawberries, grapes, apples, pears, pineapples and many more! Teachers and children absolutely loved lunch and even asked for seconds!
Throughout the day, children enjoyed spending time with each other and feeding the sheep and chickens. They loved meeting Perky the pig and all of the cows in the barn. They even saw a calf only a few hours old!
Everyone had a brilliant time and the staff at the farm even said that our children are a credit to our school. Well done school councillors!

Year 6 had an amazing final trip visiting Laches Wood. They tested their nerves, stepped out of their comfort zones and faced their fears!  A fantastic day had by all, making memories with super team work! Proud teachers!

February 2020

We had a very exciting day in a Space Dome!
The children learnt all about the planets and our solar system. They heard lots of ancient stories about the constellations of the stars and loved being able to see the constellations right in front of their eyes.
The children learnt about the sun and how the Earth and other planets in our solar system move around it.
Did you know that the sun is the size of 1.3 million Earths?

Year 4 had a fantastic time at Birmingham Sealife Centre. There were many highlights of our visit such as watching the feeding of Gentoo Penguins, getting up close with giant rays and Reef Sharks in the Ocean Tunnel, jumping aboard the Polar Express in the 4D cinema and a surprise visit from Santa! The children behaved impeccably and were a credit to our school.
