Pupils across Elston Hall added some festive cheer to local care homes for the elderly by making Christmas cards for residents. Each year group designed a card which were then delivered to homes across the city. We hope everyone in the Wolverhampton area enjoy a very Merry Christmas.
Two Elston Hall pupils won a city-wide competition to design a Christmas card for our MP.
MP Emma Reynolds stopped off at Elston Hall to present the girls with their prizes.
Their designs beat competition from hundreds of pupils from 11 schools across the city. Isabelle was the overall winner and her entry has been printed on 1,000 cards sent out by the MP. She was presented with her entry in a frame and cinema tickets as the prize. Ellie was a runner up and received book tokens. Both were also given a certificate.
Well done to all the children who impressed their teachers so much that they were chosen as 'Pupil of the Term'.
Year 6 spent the afternoon at The Grand Theatre watching Jack and the Beanstalk. All of the children had a fantastic time (Oh yes they did!) and lots of laughs were had by all. The production was amazing and the children got involved with the boos and the hisses (good practice after their own Christmas panto!) It was smiles all round at the end and certainly got the children into the Christmas spirit!
Musicians from Years 4, 5 and 6 performed for parents in a short Christmas musical extravaganza.
Violinists from Years 4 and 5 took to the floor with their instruments alongside Year 5 on the flute and Year 6 on the clarinet.
Songs performed included Bags, Suo-gan, Au Clair de la Lune, The Old Shepherd, Spring Time, Ode to Joy, Minuet, Jingle Bells and Old King Wenceslas.
The children have been learning their instruments for 30 minutes per week led by teacher Mrs Adams and Mrs Walters.
Children braved the snow and had a wonderful Christmassy day wearing fantastic Christmas jumpers to raise money for the 'Save the Children'! Children also enjoyed a delicious Christmas lunch! Thank you to School Council for helping to organise the day.
