Welcome to Eckington C of E

FIRST SCHOOL

Caring and Sharing... Believing and Achieving Together.

Class 2

 

 

Welcome to Class 2.  We have a big, bright and colourful classroom for the year 1 and 2 children.  The class has windows overlooking the playground and school field.  We also have a doorway leading straight out onto the field.  We have a large interactive whiteboard for us all to use, computers in the room and access to group sets of iPads.  

In the classroom we have 100s of reading books in our cosy reading area, lots of learning games and construction kits to engage the children in independent learning.

Please continue to look at our class page for updates in our learning.

Autumn Term 2018-2019

Class 2 got to be reunited with 'Dot' the cockerel today (Friday 14th December).  Mrs Steed kindly brought Dot back to see us.  Dot hatched in Class 2 last May and the children were amazed at home much he has grown in just 7 months.  The children were very gentle and respectful of him.  Dot was also very kind to let the children feed and stroke him.  The children got to ask lots of questions about him too.  Thank you Mrs Steed for bringing him in and bringing our science learning to life.

EYFS and Key Stage 1 went on a magical trip to Smart Trees yesterday (Thursday 29th November).  We were all super excited to meet Father Christmas, his elves and his reindeer.  The children had to first, go on a treasure hunt amongst the trees to find the 12 days of Christmas.  After that we tiptoed our way through Santa's grotto to find him.  He gave us presents and asked us lots of questions.  We had such an amazing day.  Thank you to all the parent helpers that came with us.

Our Autumn Topic is 'Lost and Found' based on the book by Oliver Jeffers.  The story sees a young boy and a penguin go on an adventure to the South Pole and discover about friendship on the way.

We'll be using the book to create our own 'lost' stories.  Additionally, we'll explore the setting of the book by learning about polar regions.  We'll discover the amazing animals that call them home as well as the brave explorers who have journeyed there.

We the Curious

We kicked off our Science learning this term by visiting the brilliant 'We the Curious' (previously @Bristol) the Bristol Science Museum.  We had an amazing time exploring all the interactive exhibits and took part in a workshop all about mini-beasts.  The children used a giant classification key to name different insect specimens.

Forest School

The children started their forest school this week with Mr Tranmer and Mrs Hyett.  They had lots of fun making mud pies!
