Lego Competition

November 2017

What a fantastic evening! Four Class 6 boys took on the challenge of the 2017 Lego competition. They had to build a vehicle ensuring they followed the building instructions fully. They also used teamwork, determination and excellent communication skills. After 2 hours building and programming their vehicle in three separate challenges the boys are through to the final coming second place.  Bring on the final in February.




KS2 Grand Theatre Visit

The children had a fantastic time at the Michael Rosen theatre visit.

It was a language rich environment, which we are sure will inspire their own creative writing.

The children were extremely well behaved and a real credit to our school.

Year 3 Telford Park Visit 2017

Year 3 had a fantastic time at Telford Park along with their Year 3 peers from across the Elston Hall Academy Trust.

Seven Valley Railway - Christmas Cracker Express 2016

Year 1 visit to Dudley Zoo 2016

'As part of our Science work we have been learning about different types of animals. To finish off our learning we went to see the animals at the zoo. We saw lots of animals including a lioness, tigers, crocodiles, giraffes, flamingos, meerkats and lots more. We even got to hop on the train for a lift down to see the farm animals. It was a great day!'

Year 2 Residential Visit to Kingswood 2016


Year 2 had a fantastic time on our residential visit to Kingswood. They took part in a wide range of activities. They showed their daring side when they were climbing trees, working their way round a rope obstacle course and taking their turn on the zip wire. There were lots of opportunities to learn about different animals when the children met Nelly the tortoise and Treacle the rabbit, including those that we found in the pond. Ieva and Gursimran were lucky enough to find themselves a newt each! The children worked really well in their teams to build a den large enough for their whole group and they had to work together to create a bird’s nest when we went on a walk to Kingswood Common. The children thoroughly enjoyed their visit to Kingswood and many of them have asked if they can return with their families!


Year 3 visit to the City of Caves, Nottingham

Year 3 undertook a long journey to Nottingham to experience a real sandstone cave. We had a fantastic time and learning some amazing facts about Nottingham. We learnt how people used to lived underground, where people used to go to the toilets and nice and horrible job people had to do. We even learnt some interesting facts about sandstone that linked really closely with our Science topic Rocks. Year 3 did Palmers Cross extremely proud, behaviour was impeccable, excellent questions were asked to further their knowledge and perfect manners were used.


Black Country Museum

During the Autumn Term, Year 2 visited the Black Country Museum. We learned a lot about transport from the past but the children's favourite moment was when Miss Fenton was told off in the school room.
