I can't wait to see you all and get started! Please do come and introduce youselves to me when you see me at the end of the day. 


Class 4

Residential trip to Condover

Children from Class 4 enjoyed an action packed trip to Condover. Children participated in a range of activities including kayaking, archery, climbing, zip line and trapeze. The children demonstrated their perseverance skills and team work. It was a great 3 days! 


Crime and Punishment 


Our topic this term is 'Crime and Punishment'. The children are really looking forward to finding how punishment has changed over time. We will be focusing on a different time period in our topic lessons through to the present day. This will enable the children to make comparisons and question why things are so different now. Our DT project for this term links nicely with our topic; we will be designing and making a wooden punishment tool. 

World Book Day 


Cluster netball tournament

Class 4 had a fantastic morning at Bredon Hill Academy participating in the cluster school's netball tournament. The children showed great team work and determination, demonstrating some fantastic netball skills. Although we sadly didn't win overall, the children were victorious in a few of their matches. Well done Class 4!! 

Spring Term 2024


Our topic for this term is 'Secrets of the Sphinx'. We will be learning all about life in Ancient Egypt, the children are really looking forward to this. To kick off our learning, we had our 'WOW' afternoon, the children spent the afternoon making a large scale Sarcophagus for our display, Egyptian neck collars and wrote their names in hieroglyphics. We will also be having an Egyptian workshop later on in the term, this will provide children with the opportunity to become immersed into Egyptian life. 

In English, our focus is on Egyptian myths, the children are learning about the different gods and myths. Following this, they will create their own god and write their own myth- the children can showcase their creativity. 

Walk like an Egyptian


Class 4 have been working so hard designing and creating their Egyptian headdress portraits. They look fantastic and were too good not to share on our class page! 


Global Explorers Week 


We started the Spring term off with a trip to South America. The children had a fun-filled three days learning about culture, identifying the different countries, food tasting and a Zumba lesson. Following this, we had an art morning. Class 4 looked at the work of Brazilian artist Beatriz Milhazes, inspired by her work the children created their very own paintings. The colour inspiration for their art work came from the flags of the countries in South America. The children showed great creativity and produced some super paintings. 

Autumn Term 2023

Our Topic this term is 'Cooking up a Storm'. We will be looking at different food types from across the world, and locating these countries on a map. During DT lessons, the children will be food tasting and, using their research of seasonal produce will be creating a savoury dish.  

Science - The Digestive System


We have been learning about the digestive system in our science lessons,  finding out the function of the organs and how the digestions system works. To enable us to understand this better, we made our very own digestive systems using a pair of tights along with a chocolate spread and banana sandwich.  The children were really engaged with this lesson and had great fun!

Enterprise Week 

We had a fantastic Enterprise week, the children worked so hard in the design and execution of their handmade felt christmas decorations.  The children learned how to applique and develop their sewing skills, creating a range of wonderful decorations. 

Football Tournament 

Pupils from Class 4 recently participated in a cluster school's football tournament at Evesham United. The children showed great teamwork and determination and played well together. It was a tough competition. However, the children were not defeated and scored some great goals. Amazingly, the children won two of their matches. Well done to everyone who played. 

Class trip to Tewkesbury 

To enhance our topic 'Turbulent Tewkesbury', Class 4 enjoyed a field trip to Tewkesbury. Our day started off by asking members of the public a variety ofquestions to determine the reason for their visit and if they had any concerns about Tewkesbury. Following this, we went to look around the amazing abbey. The children were blown away by its beauty and architecture. After lots of hunting, we were able to find the plaque of the young Prince Edward, who was killed during the Battle of Tewkesbury. 

Artist in residence - Sketching and water colour paintings of local landmarks 

During topic lessons, we have been looking at Ordnance Survey maps, identifying local landmarks and symbols. Furthermore, we have been focusing on reading 4 and 6 figure grid references. 

In our Science work, we carried out an investigation to answer this question: 'If you have bigger hands, are you able to pick up more cubes?'. The results proved to be very interesting... 

Cluster Tag Rugby at Bredon Hill Academy.

On Wednesday, Years 4/5 took part in a tag rugby tournament with the Bredon Cluster schools. We entered two teams which both competed fiercely in their games! The children’s commitment, sportsmanship and skill was fantastic to see and we received brilliant feedback from our fellow schools! A big well done to everybody who took part and Mr Butler for his help! Mr Merchant 

Inter House Hockey!

We held our House sports competition on Wednesday afternoon, with all KS2 children in their houses ready to win some hose points! We played six minute games of Hockey across two pitches, showcasing the skills and techniques we have learnt in this half terms PE sessions. Our results were extremely close and were ultimately decided on goals scored, with River coming out victorious! A big well done to everybody who played and showed the very best of our school! Mr Merchant 

Cross Country

Years 4 and 5 travelled to Bredon school to participate in a Bredon cluster cross country competition. The children raced in year group races and showed their talents, tackling a slippy course underfoot! The children did a fantastic job and showed the Eckington spirit throughout the day, persevering under challenge and showing our school values by helping others and encouraging every runner from the sidelines. We are very proud of every participant and hope this has inspired the children to pursue running out of school! A big well done!
