Welcome to Eckington C of E

FIRST SCHOOL

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.

Mr Scott Tranmer.

Summer Term 2017-2018

Thank you to Class Catering for donating seeds, seed tray and compost.  Class 2 have been sowing lots of seeds today so we can eat our fresh produce as part of lunchtimes.

Over the last month Class 2 have been looking after some eggs that were donated by Mrs Steed.  She brought in an incubator for us to follow the progress of new life in 7 little chicks.  This has been a real life science investigation.  The children haven't stopped talking about the chicks.  We have watched from the very beginning seeing the eggs move in the incubator, to the very first crack.  We have watched the chicks hatch out of their eggs and take their first breath.  Now they are fluffy, lively and noisy.  

The children have named all the chicks too.

Thank you Emily and Mrs Steed for making such a magical moment for us all.  

Class 1 and Class 2 were so lucky to visit The Bell today, 17th April.  We went along to work with Mr and Mrs Leighfield and their chefs, Justine, Zdenko and Megan.  They were all so kind and helpful.  They taught us all about healthy and non healthy food, how to make a delicious, healthy pasta salad with lots of vegetables and a tasty, tangy salad dressing.

We are so lucky to have such wonderful parents who help us to learn new things.  Thank you to Mr and Mrs Leighfield for our SUPER START.

Spring Term 2017-2018

KS1 trip to Eastnor Castle to finish off our topic, Damsels, Dragons and Dungeons.  We had a wonderful time looking around the castle.  Thank you to all the parent helpers that joined us for the day.

Topic Sharing Morning with our parents and grandparents.  Thank you all so much for coming and joining us at our Medieval banquet and castle model making.

Forest School Artwork.  Children have been linking their science learning into our forest school sessions despite the snow.  We have been identifying common garden spring flowers and creating pictures of them using natural materials.  What do you think of our wonderful art?
