We have had some special visitors this week at Goldthorn Park, our local MP Pat Mc.Fadden and wonderful Wolfie, the Wolves mascot! Wolves Tech Aid kindly donated laptops to help support our children’s learning. After receiving our new laptops, the School Council and Digital Leaders at Goldthorn Park had the opportunity to conduct a Q and A session with the MP, asking current and relevant questions about our school and community. What a fantastic day!
Well done School Council and Digital Leaders, you are superstars!
Goldthorn Park Primary are proud to have participated in the Royal Mail’s Heroes of the Pandemic stamp competition. This competition supported Royal Mail to achieve Guiness World Record for the largest postage stamp design competition The largest postage stamp design competition consisted of 606,049 completed submissions and was achieved on 1 July 2021.
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.
What a fantastic time we had on our visit to St Peter’s church, Wolverhampton, for the Open Door Project! Learning all about the church was fascinating and we learnt many interesting facts about the church and its history during our tour. During the event, we had opportunity to make our very own stained glass windows, chalices, brass rubbings and stoles. These were lots of fun to make and we were all proud of the objects we made. Have a look at what we got up to by looking at the picture gallery below.
We hope you enjoy!
16 pupils from Year 5 attended a massed community choir event at the church together with pupils from St Bart’s, St Benedict’s, Woodfield and The Royal School.
The day involved taking part in fun warm-up games and rehearsing the songs –‘Sing, We Will Rock You, You Raise Me Up, True Colours and Firework’ – of which the latter song was undoubtedly their favourite! In the evening, they performed the songs at the concert which all parents attended.
The Year 5’s enjoyed performing as part of a larger choral group, and especially making new friends along the way!
Children in Year 2 celebrated Harvest with an assembly for their parents and the whole school. A big thank you to all the families that generously sent tins, fruits and packets of food – these were kindly donated to the Good Shepherd Ministry.
Congratulations to our winners and runner up in the Christmas Card competition run by Pat McFadden, MP for Wolverhampton South East. The children enjoyed a special presentation ceremony held at the Mayor’s Parlour where they were presented with a certificate and House of Commons prizes.We are really proud of you!
Well done to Hargunpreet who won the Eservices competition for EYFS.
Children from across Elston Hall Multi Academy Trust joined together to perform at this year's city-wide 'Diversity event'.
Pupils from Palmers Cross , Elston Hall and Edward the Elder danced, and were joined by our singers from Goldthorn Park. The 35 children wowed audiences at Aldesley Stadium during the performance on Friday (23rd November) night.
Around 20 schools performed at the event altogether, and were watched by staff and parents.
Elston's performance was to the song 'Happier' by Marshmello and Bastille.
Goldthorn Park and Edward the Elder were two of the ten schools from across Wolverhampton to be selected to feature on the Mayor of Wolverhampton’s Christmas Card for 2018. Two children from each school went to Bantock Park for the special photo shoot with the Mayor and Mayoress, they were then treated to refreshments, which everyone enjoyed!
Keep a look out for the Mayor’s Christmas Card.
Goldthorn Park have entered the ‘Paint a Poppy Challenge’ run by the SAA and the British Legion. This has proved to be a fantastic way for us to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of World War One, as well as displaying the progression of art skills taught across the school with a range of high quality children’s artwork.
Each year group created a beautiful, bright display of poppy paintings and drawings. These are now displayed in our Key Stage Two building.
