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.
Year 2 have had a lovely day at West Midlands Safari Park and children thoroughly enjoyed their experience. We saw lots of different wild animals and even had the opportunity to hold some of the smaller creatures. Snowy the snake was definitely our favourite creature to touch.
We cheered for Callum the sea-lion and enjoyed watching all of his tricks. We couldn’t believe how clever he was.
School Council will be raising money for Marie Curie, which is a charity that supports people living with a terminal illness and their families. From Monday 18th March, School Councillors will be selling Marie Curie daffodil badges.
Thank you for your support.
Thank you so much to the families for all the delicious cakes sent in today and for all the generous donations to this worthwhile cause.
Children loved dressing up as their favourite characters to celebrate World Book Day. We spent the day celebrating reading, books and authors. Each year group chose a multicultural text to focus on.

- Emergency calls
- Fire hazards
- Stop, drop and roll

- In-car safety
During the session they learnt vital life saving skills.
