Educational Visits

June 2022

Year 5 had a fantastic day at Blists Hill. The children got dressed into Victorian clothing and experienced what it would have been like to go to school in Victorian times. No one got the cane but it ws a bit scary! Children also had the chance to walk around the town and see all the shops that would have been in a typical Victorian town. Some of the shops they visited were a bank, photographers and chemists. Due to unforeseen circumstances,  some of the children were unable to take part in the candle dipping workshop so Blists Hill kindly let some of us go on the clay mine train trip. To finish the day off, the children had some time on the adventure playground. We're very proud of Year5, their behaviour was fantastic!

Year 1 had a wonderful day at Dudley Zoo. It was wonderful to hear the children applying their science learning when talking about the animals!

Not only did the children get to see vertebrates from all the five animal groups, they also had time for a train ride, a look round the castle and fun on the adventure playground.

We were lucky enough to have Pep the Poet spend 2 days at school sharing his love for poetry and his collection of silly poems. Children across school had the opportunity to spend some time listening to his funny poems such as 'The Bubble Wrap, The Scarecrow Rap and Where does the tooth fairy hide the teeth?' Children and teachers alike were completely entertained during the sessions and some children even had the opportunity to dress up as characters from the hilarious poems including rappers and scarecrows. A fun time was had by all and hopefully children have been inspired to create their own silly poems!

Our local police came to visit children to talk to them about staying safe outside of school. This was a valuable opportunity for pupils to hear important messages from the police and we are grateful that they
gave up their time to come and see us.

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!
