Welcome to Eckington C of E


Caring and Sharing... Believing and Achieving Together.

Class 1


Welcome to Class 1.  We have a bright and colourful classroom for our Nursery and Reception children to enjoy learning in. The classroom is separated into different areas to encourage the children to develop independence in their learning. We have a maths area, writing area, creative area, construction area, role play area, book corner, computer table and a malleable play area. The children also have access to an outdoor garden area. We love to use our imaginations to support our learning in class 1. The children are taught using a balance of adult led and child initiated activities which enables them to immerse themselves in new and fun learning experiences. 

Please keep checking our class page for updates on our learning.

Autumn Term 2018-2019

Legoland Discovery, Birmingham.  

Reception and Nursery spent the day in Birmingham today.  We went our first class visit and had a very special day at Legoland Discovery.  The children had a FANTASTIC time (so did the adults!)  

We spent time on rides where we had to save the princess, went to a 4D cinema show, build houses to withstand the earthquake plates and race cars to zoom down the ramps.  We also spent time in Mini land, looking at the sites of Birmingham made entirely out of Lego.  It took 9 master builders 9 months to create it!  The children were so excited and enjoyed every minute. Their manners, thoughtfulness towards others and happy faces made us all so proud.

"It's all in the hips." Dylan tells us!

Autumn hats for our dads!

Class 1 and the Year 5 children have been paired up as reading partners.  They have loved sharing books together.  Thank you Year 5.

What fantastic fun, teamwork and independence we are having in Class 1...Sleeping lions, snakes in the grass, model making...

Our Amazing Nursery Children.  What a brilliant start to life at Eckington CE First School Nursery.

Our First Day at Eckington CE First School!

My Family.

Welcome to Eckington CE First School and to Class 1 for your first term at 'Big' School. 

I am really looking forward to us getting started and having lots of fun with our learning. 

Our first topic is all about our families.  We will be reading lots of exciting books about family life and creating some fantastic art linked to them.  Very excitingly, some of our parents will be coming into class to talk about their jobs.  This is so we can meet all the parents and learn about what they do and find out about all those different jobs our parents do when they go to work.

During the term we will add lots of photos and pictures of all the interesting learning we get up to so our parents can see all the fun we are having.

Our computer self portraits

Reception children from Class 1 had a go on the computers in our computer room today (Friday).  We used the 2Publish programme to draw our portraits.

Indoor PE

Bean bags and heads, shoulders, knees and toes today!  We got our hearts pumping with lots of jumping, catching and dancing in PE. Great work Class 1!

Making jelly in Class 1.  What do you thin will happen to it when it is cooled down?

Talks from our mums and dads

Thank you to Willow's mum for talking to us today (Monday 1st October) about your job as a nail technician.  The children loved to hear about your job and really got creative drawing nail art and make up on the pictures you brought in for them.  Thank you.

Thank you to Poppy's mum and to George's mum for their fantastic, interesting talks about their very important jobs.  The children have been re enacting the jobs that you do in our role play area.

Thank you to Jessica's mum for coming into Class 1 to talk about her interesting job in an office.  The children loved seeing the photos and trying on your lanyard.

Thank you to Dylan's mum and Leo's mum for coming in today (Wednesday 12th September) to talk about their jobs.  The children loved finding out about being an interior designer and selling cheese. We had a wonderful time.

Thank you to Mr Greaves for coming to  Class 1 and talking about his job.  The children listened really well and then took part in drawing tall buildings together.

Reception's First PE Lesson

Today (Monday 10th Sept) Class 1 got changed all by themselves, had a fun PE lesson and got dressed back into their school uniform.  Well done for playing with the balls, hoops and each other so well.

Class 1 in Forest School

Our wonderful nursery and reception children stomped across the field in their wellies to explore Forest School.  We had an amazing time playing games, exploring the woods, bug hunting and making seesaws! 

More muddy Forest School Photos.  Today (Thursday 20th September) we were building shelters as well as a swing, balance beams and mud sausages and snakes linked to our phonics.
