As promised, here is the 2020 Elemore Hall School Christmas extravaganza!
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas at Elemore… The pupils participated in a festive activity to create their own Christmas tree baubles. To create the baubles, there was a selection of various sizes of polystyrene balls, dress making pins and sequins. By using the materials provided, the pupils were able to apply their own creativity and imagination to produce and design a unique bauble. Also, I provided other materials such as paint, feathers and glitter in order to promote higher order thinking skills with the aim to encourage them to think outside of the examples and demonstrations I had provided. Overall, it was a successful and very festive session which both the pupils and staff enjoyed.
Pupils from various class groups had the opportunity to visit the Centre For Life. This year the exhibition was Game on 2.0. The focus on the day was gaming and how it has developed over the last 50 years. Pupils could play more than 150 playable games which included Pac-Man, Defender and Donkey Kong. Every pupil who went had an amazing time.
On Thursday 4th July the annual county Athletics event took place at Shildon Athletics Stadium organised by Windlestone Hall school. The weather was fantastic and all the pupils performed excellently in their individual events. This culminated in Elemore winning the overall junior and senior boys events. Highlights of the day included Kyle Layton winning the senior boys 800m by a long distance, Isaac Jordan taking gold with a comfortable win in the junior boys 200m and Kristen Myles winning the junior boys Javelin with a distance that would have won gold in the senior boys event!
A big thanks was sent to Mr Nicholson by the Windlestone PE teacher who said had it not been for the Elemore staff running the events (Mr Peat Triple Jump, Mr Morris high Jump, Mr Nicholson Shot Put) most of the events would have been cancelled. Well done to everyone who took part in the day.
Here are a few pictures from our Sports Day, A full report is coming soon!!
Pupils who attend Mr Clifton and Mr Peat’s climbing activity on a Wednesday evening participated in the 2019 North East Junior and Inter-School Climbing Championships held at Climb Newcastle. This individual and inter-school competition is one of the biggest junior climbing events held in the UK.
All the pupils tried really hard, worked as a team and as a result have achieved the highest total group score we have ever had!
We currently have a vacancy for a Child Care Officer/Learning Support Assistant from 1st September 2019 (1 year temporary initially)
