Welcome to Class 1. We have a bright and colourful classroom for our Nursery and Reception children to enjoy learning in. The classroom is separated into different areas to encourage the children to develop independence in their learning. We have a maths area, writing area, creative area, construction area, role play area, book corner, computer table and a malleable play area. The children also have access to an outdoor garden area. We love to use our imaginations to support our learning in class 1. The children are taught using a balance of adult led and child initiated activities which enables them to immerse themselves in new and fun learning experiences.
Please keep checking our class page for updates on our learning.
Our school is 150 years old!
Today (12th September) we went exploring around the school to try and find where the 'old' school used to be. We discovered that Class 3 and the computer room were the first 2 classes with over 100 children in them! We found a fireplace in Class 3 and a bell in the staff room, which we rang! We also got to walk through the old front door as if we were children coming to school 150 years ago.
Our First Day at Eckington CE First School!
Welcome to Eckington CE First School and to Class 1 for your first term at 'Big' School.
I am really looking forward to us getting started and having lots of fun with our learning.
Our first topic is all about the history of the school and the people and families that came here. We will be reading lots of exciting books about school life and creating some fantastic art linked to it. Very excitingly, We will be building up to a garden party where we will be showcasing some of our talents and sharing stories about the school.
During the term we will add lots of photos and pictures of all the interesting learning we get up to so our parents can see all the fun we are having.
