Children in Year 6 worked well in teams to plan and produce a product to sell to parents. They have had to think carefully about costing, profit margins and final profits. They worked brilliantly together and the 'selling hour' was very successful! We are very grateful to family and friends who supported the children! The profits have been counted and verified and the winners, with the highest profit are...….Top Sellers, with a fantastic profit of £53.09. All profits will now go towards a 'Fun Day' for the children in their last week of being students at Elston Hall Primary School. A massive well done to all involved.
Children in Year 1 were very excited to welcome Firefighters from Fallings Park Fire Station.
Joshua the fireman showed the children a presentation about The Great Fire of London and how it started. He was very impressed with the children's knowledge about the fire and how it started. The children were told about what firefighters do and that they don't just put out fires. They help people out of car crashes, get cats out of trees and help people out of canals. The fireman also discussed the fire hazards that could be in and around the home.
Each group had the opportunity to climb into the cabin of the fire engine and sit in the seats! Whilst inside the fire engine they were shown different elements; for e.g the heat detector. which was used to detect people who might be trapped in the smoke, the storage within the cabin for the firemen's helmets and the gas mask. Afterwards, Rob the firemen showed the children all the different tools found on the fire engine; such as 'Jaws of Life' used to help cut people out of cars when they are stuck from a car accident. The children also had the opportunity to watch Rob put on a full firefighter's uniform.
The children had a fantastic afternoon!
Choir attended the annual Sing 4 Summer event at St John’s Church and had the most amazing time. Children had an opportunity to join other schools in performing songs that they have been rehearsing in Choir Club. It was a great workshop to demonstrate singing skills and join in with other children playing instruments, dancing and harmonising their lovely voices. Our choir also demonstrated how ‘Outstanding’ their voices are, when they performed their own rendition of ‘This Is Me’ – wow! What a tearjerker! They certainly left everyone with goosebumps! Another lovely afternoon and another proud moment for our children!
Zaara from Year 4 took to the stage at Wolverhampton Grand Theatre after winning part of a regional competition. Zaara drew an advert for local firm ERA as part of the Express & Star 'Design an Ad Competition.' Her design was the winning one chosen from all the other Elston Hall entries. Zaara was presented with her entry framed, a certificate and a Waterstones voucher at the ceremony on July 3rd. ERA also gave Zaara and her family an annual pass for the Black Country Museum and a goody bag. Elston Hall won a cheque for £50. Other winners from across the region also won prizes for their winning entries for adverts for other local companies. Well done Zaara!

Year 1 found out about snot! What it is and why we need it to stay healthy. They carried out an experiment to find out whether thick or thin snot travels further when we sneeze!
Year 5 analysed vomit (home-made) and carried out an experiment in order to design the perfect sick bag!
Well done to our athletics team who represented not only Elston Hall but Wolverhampton at this year's Black Country School Games Summer Festival. We joined more than 1500 other athletes competing in a range of events at The University of Wolverhampton.
Our athletics team gave 100 % effort on the day and were great sports men and women. We came 7th out of 15 teams competing. Superb performance!
Children took part in canoeing across a lake and then had to cross a lake using vines and bridges - many of them fell in! They also had a go at abseiling and climbing. Everyone enjoyed it and there were some amazingly brave children.
Class 10 have had the pleasure of learning how to play the cornet and mini trumpet in their music lessons over the Summer term. The children learnt how to hold the instrument and fit the mouth piece correctly, how to find the beat in a piece of music and how to play several notes on the instruments. The children showcased what they had learnt in lessons beautifully in the music concert.
A great morning of sport at KS1 Sports Day. Thanks to all the parents and carers for attending!
