On Thursday December 7th. the children in Reception travelled to Birches Valley in Cannock Chase to visit Santa in his Grotto. After a very rainy start to the day the sun came out just as we arrived which meant that we could have lots of fun on the playground with our friends. When it was time to meet Santa we were greeted by his reindeer and travelled through a passage of twinkling lights and snowy scenes to his cosy cabin. Santa spoke to each and every one of us and we were all eager to tell him what gifts we would like for Christmas. He gave everyone a Santa badge and a small fir tree to plant in our gardens at home. We cannot wait to watch them grow into our very own Christmas trees! We all had a wonderful time!!
Y6 children were invited to Coppice Performing Arts School to watch their production of ‘School of Rock’. The performance was fantastic and the children loved it! Some of them even managed to get a quick photo with the main character!
Year 2 children had a fantastic visit at the B.C.L.M. They were greeted by a costumed tour guide, Carol, who showed and explained what life was like to live and work in one of the world’s most heavily industrialised landscapes. Sparks flew as the children observed a chain maker forging a link and stomachs rumbled at the smell of the fish and chip shop which served chips as they did in 1930.
The children laughed and giggled in the cinema, which only screened black and white moving pictures to music. They were shocked at the basic furniture, food and clothes in the original period shops and houses. Children were amazed at how people from the past survived without hot running water, electricity, bathrooms and the television !
Overall Year 2 had a great time to kick start their history topic - Transport. They found out why the Black Country became famous for the manufacture of vehicles and they took a ride on the vintage tram and bus.
A huge well done to our Year 5 children for the good behaviour demonstrated during their St Peter's Church Visit in Wolverhampton. The children and staff had a brilliant day and gained so much from the visit.
Year 3 pupils from across Elston Hall Multi Academy Trust visited Telford Town Park. The visit gave children from the three schools - Edward the Elder, Elston Hall and Palmers Cross - the chance to meet, socialise and also learn some science.
Year 4 have enjoyed a fantastic visit to Llandudno and Conwy. They enjoyed time on the beach writing in the sand, investigating pebbles and eating lunch. They also went on the tram up the Great Orme and, although it was very blustery, the views were phenomenal. Before heading to Conwy, the children enjoyed an ice cream on the pier and some free time in the arcade. Once in Conwy, they were amazed by the smallest house in Great Britain, spent some money in the gift shop and enjoyed fish and chips outside overlooking the harbour. Throughout the day, the children were complemented by members of the public for their behaviour and manners. Well done - we are very proud of you!
Year 1 visited St.Thomas' Church in Wednesfield on the morning of Thursday 27th April. They visited the church to reinforce their learning linked to religious buildings and Christianity. Year 1 were invited to explore St. Thomas' Church by Rev. Nick Watson who also spoke to the children about the building and he answered their questions. To finish the visit off, the children were shown the special clothing and were given the opportunity to try some items on. Before leaving, a prayer was said and a candle was lit.
School Council enjoyed a fantastic visit to the Mayor's Parlour in Wolverhampton.
They met the Mayor, took a seat in the council chamber and tried on the robes and Chain of Office.
They were also complemented for their impeccable behaviour and represented our school extremely well.
Year 3 visited Palmers Cross Primary School for their Stone Age Workshop.
We became archaeologists for the morning digging up lots of artefacts from the past!
We learnt about cave paintings, hunting, food and weapons! We had a great time and have loved learning about the Stone Age!
