Welcome to Eckington C of E

FIRST SCHOOL

Caring and Sharing... Believing and Achieving Together.

Class 1

Welcome to Class 1: our bright, spacious classroom that looks out onto the school field and our forest school, and home this year to our Nursery an Reception class.  Your teachers are Mrs Bishop and Mr McDonagh and we have support from our wonderful teaching assistants Mrs Stone and Mrs Hyett.  The classroom has lots of different areas of learning to explore during our first few days together.

Cosmic Yoga

We have been learning to following instructions and have done that as part of our PE. Today we followed our yoga teacher. She helped us follow instructions by teaching us different yoga moves through an adventure. We prepared our picnic, blew up our hot water bottle and travelled to an island! We landed in a tree, turned ourselves into a boat and then swam like fish! We had lots of fun!

Skeleton- Funny Bones!

Using our Story 'Funny Bones by Janet and Alan Ahlberg' we learnt all about our skeleton and the different bones we have in our body. We thought about the size of different bones and even made our own skeletons! We created story maps with Mrs Bishop to show what we learnt about the story. We even learnt a skeleton dance with Mr McDonagh! Take a look at our 'Funny Bones'.

Maths- Exploring Numicon and numeral recognitions

In maths, we have been working really hard on our place value. We have been exploring numbers, counting patterns and recognising numerals. We even tried tricky challenges when counting out of sequence and showing our understanding of the Numicon.

PE- Big Balls

In PE, we have been working on our concentration, listening and problem solving using lots of different balls. We have been using rugby, basket and tennis balls to complete different challenges. These challenges include: throwing and catching, trying to balance in different ways. Have you ever tried to pass a basket ball through your legs and behind your back without dropping it?! Have a go!
