All staff wish you a very happy half term holiday. We look forward to seeing the children safely back at school on Monday 26th February.
Well done to our Cross Country Team. Boys won the team event for the under 8 team and for the under 11 team. The girls won for the under 11 team.
Everyone ran well, especially in such cold conditions. It was great to see the excellent support from families!
Year 5 had a fantastic day at RAF Cosford. This visit supported our learning about the Battle of Britain in our history lessons. The children experienced what life was like for an RAF pilot during the war and got to see the spitfires and other aircraft.
Year 4 welcomed the Fire service to inform us about fire safety. We learnt what we should do to prevent a fire such as fitting smoke alarms and closing our doors when we go to bed. Also we learnt what to do if we were in a situation where fire was present.
The Area Cross Country Races will now be held at Tettenhall College on Saturday 27th January.
Arrive at 9.15am for a 10am start.
On 22nd January, twenty-one dancers from three Trust schools (Elston Hall, Palmers Cross and Edward the Elder Primary Schools) competed in the regional heats of the Great Big Dance Off at Birmingham's Alexandra Theatre. Pupils performed their dance 'Faded', choreographed beautifully by dance teacher Miss Jones. Pupils worked extremely hard to perfect the dance and produced a stunning performance! Despite not getting a place in the final, staff and parents are extremely proud of how well pupils performed. More importantly, it has been wonderful to see friendships blossom between pupils from different Trust schools. Well done dancers - you were outstanding and did us all proud!
Elston Hall athletics team made it through to the Wolverhampton City Final!
At the Final the top 8 schools out of 77 schools across Wolverhampton competed together in various track and field events.
Out of the 8 teams Elston Hall finished in 3rd place, winning bronze medals. Well done to our athletics team and I would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone that came to support us. This means that we will now represent our borough at the 2018 Black Country School Games Festival in June.
