Year 4 had an exciting visit from Severn Trent to learn about water use and sewage treatment. We found out how water travels around the water cycle and, in groups, we measured out the water use of different families to identify water savers and water wasters.
On 22nd January, twenty-one dancers from three Trust schools (Elston Hall, Palmers Cross and Edward the Elder Primary Schools) competed in the regional heats of the Great Big Dance Off at Birmingham's Alexandra Theatre. Pupils performed their dance 'Faded', choreographed beautifully by dance teacher Miss Jones. Pupils worked extremely hard to perfect the dance and produced a stunning performance! Despite not getting a place in the final, staff and parents are extremely proud of how well pupils performed. More importantly, it has been wonderful to see friendships blossom between pupils from different Trust schools. Well done dancers - you were outstanding and did us all proud!
