We wish all of our families a very happy Easter.
On Monday and Tuesday we went on our trip to Weston Park as part of our Victorians topic. We had a fantastic day that was filled with activities. First, we made our very own cup and ball that we decorated with bright colours. After that, we went on a walk around the grounds and saw Weston Hall. We saw a stone pineapple at the entrance and learnt that the Victorians often had pineapples around their homes to show people how wealthy they were. Next we played with Victorian toys outside, there were wooden hoops, skipping ropes, croquet, wooden skittles and quoits. Lunchtime came and we all ate our food together in the hall. In the afternoon, we dressed up in Victorian clothes, played with Victorian toys and learnt about Victorian nurseries. The children thoroughly enjoyed the day!
Congratulations to the Year 3 and 4 five-a-side team!
A squad of 7 players competed in the five-a-side tournament at Compton Park (Wolves training ground) The team won 3 and drew one match to finish second in their league. They played Christ Church in the quarter finals. Unfortunately, after a quick start from Christ Church they took the lead. Elston Hall played well and had two very close chances. Christ Church went on to score two more goals. Final score was 3:0 to Christ Church. The team played very well and represented the school fantastically. Well done!
Player of the tournament for Elston was Alfie H, who scored two super goals.
Nursery would like to thank all the parents for attending our writing workshop. We are pleased that you found it helpful, informative and fun to share time with your child in the nursery setting. We look forward to working together to help develop your children's writing skills.
Year 2's Easter Assembly will be held on Friday 12th April at 2.30pm NOT 5th April as stated on a previous newsletter. Sorry for any inconvenience caused.
Year 4 had a lovely day celebrating all things Asian! Children had the opportunity to make Chinese fans, design mehndi patterns, learn an Indian dance, create rangoli patterns, listen to Arjan play his dhol drum and participate in a delicious Indian feast made by Mrs Suwali! Thank you to parents/carers for providing children with their amazing outfits.
Another great result!
Elston Hall travelled the short distance to play Rakegate Primary School on Wednesday 20th March. After a slow start, the team began to find their feet and played some excellent football. The Rakegate goalkeeper produced some fantastic saves. Just before half time, Harry broke the deadlock and scored a great solo goal. In the second half, Elston Hall continued to dominate play and showed excellent passing. Harry scored another super goal. Final result was Elston Hall 2 Rakegate 0.
Star performance was Harry for his two great goals.
A huge well done to our cross country team. All the children ran their socks off and were a credit to our school! Well done to Fred who won the individual race.
