Class 4

Welcome to Class 4.  I'm Mr. Merchant and I am Class 4's teacher.  We are also very lucky to have Mrs. Crumpton, who teach the class on Wednesday afternoons.  We are based in the oldest and original part of the school, with a very spacious layout and a welcoming, friendly atmosphere. I am looking forward to a very exciting year in Class 4 and I hope you are too!

Jubilee Day!

We celebrated Her Majesty The Queen's Platinum Jubilee in style with a day dedicated to her amazing 70 year reign over the United Kingdom! We created beautiful portraits of the Queen and learnt a great deal about Her Majesty, having lots of fun along the way! We also had a non- uniform day with everyone dressing up in the colours of the Union Jack- Red, White and Blue.

Condover Hall Residential!

We had an amazing time on our residential visit to Condover Hall in Shrewsbury, taking part in a wide range of amazing activities and making memories to last for a lifetime! We had a fantastic time on activities such as fencing, archery, kayaking and the climbing wall, conquering our fears every step of the way!

Football Tournament at Evesham United

We were very lucky to participate at a football tournament alongside our fellow cluster schools at the wonderful Evesham United FC. We played some solid football and our teamwork and true team spirit was a joy to watch! Well done to everyone who took part in the event!

Take a look at all the amazing things we have been up to this term!!!                              

Pompeii: The Rain of Fire!

We completed our school production this term, based around the Romans and the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in Pompeii on 24th August 79BC. The children of KS2 were amazing and have worked so hard to ensure that they knew their lines, songs and actions when performing! I am very proud of each and every one of you!

World Book Day 2022!

We celebrated World Book Day 2022 in style in Class 4, completing a wide range of activities while also taking part in our very own fashion show in the hall! We all had a fantastic time, showcasing some fantastic outfits, while sharing some of our very favourite books!

Corinium Museum Trip

We were lucky enough to visit the Corinium museum in Cirencester to further our learning about the Romans and Anglo- Saxons! We had a fantastic time and learnt an awful lot from our walk around the museum and numerous workshop activities, including dressing us as Romans and recreating Roman pots!

Eckington's Own Roman Army!!

In our topic, we have been learning about the Roman Army and the power that it held! We have explored the equipment that soldiers used, the uniforms they wore and the different tactics they deployed on the battlefield. Here, the children are showing off the Wedge and Tortoise formations!

Forest School Fun!

On Thursday 20th January, Class 4 took part in a fantastic forest school session ran by Mrs Hyett and Miss Curnock. We created roman roads, designed and casted our very own Pewter Roman coins, painted our own Roman inspired mosaics on blocks of wood and baked stick bread over an open fire! Despite being so busy, we still managed time to build a den and have a cup of hot chocolate! We had an amazing day and learnt an awful lot about how the Romans would have lived!

Djembe Drumming!

We have been learning how to drum using the African Djembe drum! This has been taking place on a Monday afternoon and has been brilliant fun for all while learning some key music skills!

Autumn Term

We are over the moon about our topic, 'To Infinity and Beyond', here in Class 4! We will be looking at our solar system in great detail through our topic and science work while learning the answers to many key questions, such as 'Is the moon made out of cheese?'.
