Welcome to Eckington C of E


Caring and Sharing... Believing and Achieving Together.

Class 2



Welcome to Class 2.  This year we have moved to the other side of the school.  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

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!
