The Way Youth Zone will be hosting a “Meet your future classmates” event at The Way Youth Zone during the summer holidays and they would love for year 6’s to be part of it. The aim of the event will be to address any concerns or worries that our year 6 pupils may have during this big but exciting transition from Primary school to Secondary school. Children will get the chance to make new friends, engage in team building activities, be competitive with our fun and messy challenge as well as create an interactive art piece which will help them to settle into their new school.
The event will take place throughout the six weeks holiday and will cost 50p for your students to attend. Upon completing the activities your students will then be able to engage in the other activities that The Way has to offer until 8.30pm - this includes; rock climbing, boxing, dance, sport and many more. All they need to do is check the timetable to see when their new school will be meeting up at The Way.
Summer Squad is coordinated by City of Wolverhampton Council with the support of key city partners and friends.

Thank you to all the parents/carers of Year 6 children who supported our summer fete. We raised over £850.00 which is just fantastic!
We have had a wonderful creative week - full of fun and so much learning!
Year 1 had a fantastic Harry Potter science week starting off with designing and making their own wands and robes! After that, we had a very special delivery from Hagrid! Each class received a very special giant egg with strict instructions to take care of it and keep it safe from Voldemort. Children then thought about what could be inside the egg and they designed different fantastic and mystical beasts! On Wednesday the children were frantic as the eggs had disappeared! After a hunt around school, each egg was found but they had hatched! Luckily, Hagrid sent the children another message showing the children that the magical creatures were safe! Phew! Safe in the knowledge that the creatures were safe, children cracked on with their science experiments and potion making. They investigated density and found out what happens when you try to mix different liquids. They also designed their own potion and had fun investigating balloon racers! What a wonderful and magical week they had!
Year 1 had a very special delivery!
Year 2 have a had a busy, creative day. 'The Sorting Hat' sorted us into our team houses, which was very exciting! Next we made our very own wands and created a shield to match the house we were sorted into. After lunch we designed and made a 'Golden Snitch'.
Year 4 making wands ready for potions class!
Year 4 investigated which material was best for a quidditch ball to travel the furthest.
Year 4 thought carefully about the ingredients for a friendship potion!
Year 5 designing and making a snitch. Which one will go the furthest? Enjoying a butter beer!
Year 6 investigated the density of water, oil and food colouring.
Elston Hall were represented well in the athletics competition at Aldersley today with some fantastic results from all who took part. We had a winning performance from Fred in the 800m and lots of 2nd and 3rd places which means the children qualify to the finals. Well done to all the children involved!
Year 5 faced their fears and showed true grit and determination on their recent trip to Woodlands. So many children overcame fears and took on challenges that they didn't think they would be able to do - and they smashed it! Rock climbing, canoeing and vines and bridges - they were certainly tested! We are so proud of all of Year 5 for being Outstanding children, demonstrating super behaviour and attitudes throughout the whole of the day.
Well done to the Year 6 rounders team who represented Elston Hall at The Royal School. The rounders team showed great teamwork and sportsmanship during their matches against other schools across Wolverhampton. Elston Hall showed great batting and fielding skills and won the first match 16-9. Although team spirits were high, the second rounders game ended with a score of 10- 4 to the other team.
Well done to the boys and girls that participated showing superb effort and determination.
Year 1 children loved spending the afternoon with their dad, stepdad, uncle, granddad etc. this afternoon. They played phonics reading games, shared stories, designed front covers for books and even decorated gingerbread men together! Thank you so much to all who attended - the children loved it and it was great to see so many grown ups sharing in their children’s learning!
