Class 2 had a brilliant time during their bike ability ‘go ride’ sessions. They started by using their balancing skills to travel on the bikes and moved on to pedalling without any stabilisers, some of us even for the first time. Well done!

Class 2 have had an amazing time visiting RAF Cosford for our Up Up and Away topic. We watched the 4d cinema, made parachutes and tested them!

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.

The children thoroughly enjoyed themselves. They listened to an education talk about The Aztecs and chocolate, experienced the 4D cinema, saw first hand how chocolate is made, wrote their names in chocolate and much more.

Thank you for all your Harvest donations this year, they were very much appreciated. We hope you enjoyed Year 2's Harvest Assembly. The children were joined by a representative from the Little Brothers of the Good Shepherd who then took all your donations away for the homeless people in our City.  They do some extremely valuable work and we are always happy to be able to support them so thank you!

Class 4 had a fantastic time exploring under the sea using virtual reality (VR) googles. We saw the different layers of the ocean and the animals that had adapted to live in each zone. 

 

 

Class 2 have had a very exciting start back to the term learning all about our new topic 'Up Up and Away'. We had a strange crash landing in our classroom so we did some investigating and followed clues to find that Russell from Up had landed in our school! Since then we’ve been learning all about flight, we have also been researching hot air balloons using search engines.
  
Class 7 have been on a number hunt around school.
  
Year 3 have been working well together in teams to think of ideas for our 'Class Charter'.
Class 3 are learning how to use a 'safe' search engine to find out about how humans survived during an ice age.

Class 4 were very excited to meet our new friends in class today. We have decided to call them Bubble and Squeak. 

Class 5 have started their journey into space travel by researching existing rockets and the Apollo Program, generating ideas, planning and making their own paper rocket. What a space-tastic start!

 

  

 In Maths we have started off the year by looking at place value. 

Class 5 have started their new Science topic of forces. They have started the year off looking at measuring forces in newtons. 

  

Class 5 had a space-tastic time using virtual reality to look at the different planets, the moon landing and the Milky Way Galaxy.
