Reception thoroughly enjoyed a trip to Birches Valley on Cannock Chase, where we explored a Christmas Trail and had the chance to meet Father Christmas in his Grotto! As we walked through the trail, we were able to find all 9 of Father Christmas’ reindeer. We were even lucky enough to say ‘hello’ to the Gruffalo along the way!

After we completed the Christmas Trail, we had the chance to play on the park. All the children enjoyed climbing and swinging from the different equipment!


After we had had fun on the park, we made our way to Father Christmas’ Grotto where we discovered some of his reindeer resting in the stable. Along the way, we saw penguins, polar bears and Father Christmas’ sleigh. We also got to throw some snowballs with his Elves! Inside the Grotto, we saw a beautiful Christmas tree and next to the cosy fire was Father Christmas! We all had time to talk Father Christmas and share what presents we would like to receive. We were lucky enough to receive two gifts from Father Christmas, a Christmas tree sapling and a badge! We finished our day waving goodbye to Father Christmas and the staff at Birches Valley and sang songs from our Nativity play on the coach journey home.


Our visit to Birches Valley was lots of fun; we were very proud of the children's sensible behaviour and excellent manners. The children’s behaviour and enthusiasm was outstanding throughout the day, children were excited to share their experiences and new knowledge in discussions back at school.

Nursery children have visited MAC theatre in Birmingham and been thoroughly entertained by ‘Sleepyhead’ ,a funny tale about a little baby who would not sleep at night time. There was so much for the children to enjoy - the puppets ,games of peepo, music, bubbles, shiny lights, dirty nappies, magic and silly games!

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.

BBC Children in Need brought back the theme of ‘SPOTACULAR’ as the nation’s pupils were so spot on with their fundraising last year. We  decided to get involved and help raise money for this incredible cause on Friday 16th November. To do our bit and raise money, children dressed in their spottiest clothes and donated 50p which went directly to the charity. School council organised the day, starting with an assembly they had prepared and finishing with a Pudsey Bear competition.
As part of the day we had a bake sale to raise more money for this worthwhile cause. Thank you to all parents/carers who sent in the most amazing cakes!

Year 2 have had a bostin’ day at the Black Country Museum. Children have had the chance to ride on transport from the past, watch a black and white Laurel and Hardy film and experienced what life would have been like for a Victorian child. Children were a credit to Elston Hall and impressed the tour guides with their manners and enthusiasm.

Year 4 thoroughly enjoyed their visit to Tamworth Castle where they had the opportunity to dress up as Anglo-Saxon soldiers, take part in an archaeological dig and re-enact a battle! The children were a credit to Elston Hall, asking relevant questions and impressing the staff at Tamworth castle with their knowledge about Anglo-Saxons.

   

 

  

 

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.
