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 Steele and Mrs Marks and we have support from our wonderful teaching assistants Miss Heath and Mrs Hyett.  The classroom has lots of different areas of learning to explore.

Our School

The children have had a fantastic first few days in school! 

We started our learning topic with a 'super start' and went on a tour of the school. The children have enjoyed making new friends, exploring the classroom areas and meeting 'Luca' our listening teddy.  

Harvest
The children have enjoyed learning about harvest. They all performed a class poem at the harvest festival in church and loved creating their harvest themed paintings. The children also donated food items to the food bank and all shared prayers to thank God for what we have in our lives.
Past and Present
The children went back in time to learn about what our school was like in the past. They all thoroughly enjoyed looking at old photographs of the school and noticed that lots of the photographs were in black and white and had no colour! The children made lots of comparisons from what our school was like in the past to what our school is like today in the present.

Magic Maths 

The children have been exploring lots of fun maths challenges! 

Enterprise Week
The children learnt about money this week. They have been naming and sorting coins, having a go at coin rubbings and enjoying our role play shop. The children all came up with a class name for our company - Class One Creative Kids. They’ve been busy designing and creating their self-portrait canvas artwork which they sold at our ‘Enterprise Fair’.
