Welcome to Eckington C of E

FIRST SCHOOL

Caring and Sharing... Believing and Achieving Together.

Class 3

 

Class 3 is in the oldest part of the school with a high ceiling and double aspect windows.  It is a bright room with an interactive whiteboard and computers to enhance learning.  This year it is home to our Year 3/4 Class taught by Mrs Dodd, Mrs Marks and Mrs Waller.

There is access to an outside space ('the secret garden') and we have a clear view to the Spiritual Garden.   

We will update our page regularly with details of our exciting curriculum.  You will also be able to access useful information like spelling lists and homework tasks.
