Year 3 parents enjoyed coming into school to use the school library.
The children and parents looked at different books before deciding on a book to take home and share together.
We look forward to hearing all about the books that were taken home and looking at your 'Reading Together' posters.

School will be closed to children as it is being used as a polling station for the General Election. Sorry for any inconvenience caused.
As an exciting start to our new theme for this half term, ‘Let’s Celebrate!’ the children in Nursery and Reception have helped to organise a special ‘Bonfire Celebration Day’.
Reception children wrote lists in preparation for the event and all of the pupils enjoyed making edible sparklers in class.
We wrapped ourselves up in wellies, hats, scarves and gloves and gathered around our fire pit to sing songs and eat marshmallows on sticks. We used scarves and streamers to create firework dances to fantastic sound effects and worked as teams to collect wood and sticks for our imaginary bonfire. We even watched Mrs Harris light sparklers!
We had a great deal of fun and found out all about firework safety along the way.
What a wonderful way to introduce our new topic!
School councillors had an amazing experience visiting the Mayor of Wolverhampton and the Mayor's Parlour! They were given a tour of the chamber, were allowed to try on official clothing as well as ask many questions! They represented their classes and our school exceptionally!
Children from across Elston Hall Multi-Trust Academy performed their piece to ‘Speechless’ which reflects the importance to never underestimate the power of a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, or the smallest act of caring. We have two ears and one mouth, so we should listen more than we say. We have within us, the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars and change the world one small step at a time.
The children were fabulous and made us all proud.
As usual, poppies will be on sale at school from Monday 4th November in the lead up to Remembrance Day the following week. There is a suggested donation of 20p for a poppy. Other items including pencil, eraser, reflector and pencil sharpener are available for 50p, and a ruler for £1.
Year 6 had a fantastic time visiting Cadbury World. There were plenty of opportunities to bring their learning of the Aztecs and the Mayans to life during our trip, in particular during our educational talk where some of us even got to dress up! We travelled back in time to learn about the history or chocolate as well as enjoyed a tour of the factory - not forgetting opportunities to taste the chocolate too! One of our favourite parts was experiencing the 4d cinema! Super behaviour by all!
Year 3 thoroughly enjoyed participating in a number of 'feel good' activities. They particularly enjoyed their yoga and cake decorating sessions.
The children in Reception have been learning all about Autumn traditions.
We have had so much fun carving pumpkins and making scarecrows – Lots of sticky fingers!
We are drying out the seeds to grow our own pumpkin plants.
The children in Reception have been learning all about healthy eating and making healthy food choices this week.
Parents and carers have been wonderfully generous and donated so much fresh fruit that we have been able to make the most enormous and delicious fruit kebabs!
We have been so busy chopping, peeling, slicing and dicing…but more importantly we have enjoyed sharing the most scrumptious and fresh healthy food.
We have also been learning how to look after our teeth and keep them healthy. We have been talking about which food and drink is bad for our teeth and how the dentist can help us to keep our teeth healthy. We have been following instructions to learn how to brush our teeth properly and even took a new toothbrush home with us! Our learning has been so much fun!
