Unfortunately as the situation becomes more challenging, it is becoming increasingly more difficult to maintain staffing levels, therefore childcare for all Trust schools will take place at Elston Hall Primary School from Thursday 26th March.

Year 1 had a very exciting time in a Space Explorer Dome. The children learnt all about the planets and our solar system. They heard lots of ancient stories and were amazed to see the constellations. The children learnt that the sun is a star and found out why the sun moves across the sky. They watched in awe at the different phases of the moon. The Space Dome has certainly inspired some future astronomers in Year 1.
Year 6 focussed their learning during Science Day on taste. Our first investigation aimed to prove a scientific theory that children prefer sweet foods and dislike bitter tasting foods.
Are you a supertaster? Well...Year 6 aimed to find out if they were by counting the number of fungiform papillae on their tongues. We painted our tongues with blue food colouring and repeated the counting 4 times and took an average to determine the total number. Our observations found that the majority of children were classed as tasters which backed up the scientific evidence.
To celebrate British Science Week, children in Year 4 have been investigating: 'What materials make the best thermal insulator?'
We made our predictions before conducting our investigation.
In the afternoon, we shared our results with Key Stage 2 in a special assembly.
Well done to the children who took part in our mini performance!
On Thursday 27th February 2020, Year 2 were lucky to have a visit from Animals in Hands. Mo (the animal man) taught the children about animals from the rainforest. The children saw Shahrukh the python, Charlie the chinchilla, Brian the snail, Alisha the tarantula and lots more
We all really enjoyed Mo’s visit, especially being able to touch and hold the animals. Well done Year 2!
Year 4 had a wonderful morning with the Police Community Support Officer Team!
The children were extremely well behaved and the officers commented on the children's enthusiasm and positive attitude.
Well done children, we are very proud of you!
Year 4 had fun at Elston Hall Primary School with other pupils from across our trust.
They have been exploring the app 'Garage Band'. The children have learnt many skills that they are going to bring back to Goldthorn and teach their class friends.
We are looking forward to making music!
