Welcome to Eckington C of E


Caring and Sharing... Believing and Achieving Together.

Class 3


Class 3 is in the oldest part of the school with a high ceiling and double aspect windows.  It is a bright room with an interactive whiteboard and computers to enhance learning.  This year it is home to our Year 3/4 Class taught by Mrs Dodd and Mrs Waller.

There is access to an outside space ('the secret garden') and we have a clear view to the Spiritual Garden.   

We will update our page regularly with details of our exciting curriculum.  You will also be able to access useful information like spelling lists and homework tasks on the 'helping your child' page linked to our class page.  **Please scroll down the page as new content is added regularly.**

Spring Term 2019-2020

Our new topic... Rock and Roll...

This term our topic is history led, based on the historical period from the Stone Age to the Iron Age.  We made a 'super start' learning about evidence of everyday life for Stone Age people found in cave paintings.  We enjoyed making our own art - it was tricky working in the dark in cramped conditions, but great fun!


The children enjoyed a fantastic range of activities working with different teachers on amazing projects.  They floated boats, built bridges, made a variety of structures and controlled robots.  Throughout they developed their creativity, thinking, reasoning, teamwork and investigation skills. Great learning children!

Drama Workshop

Thank you to Mrs C who presented a drama workshop for our class.  This involved playing lots of games designed to test our ability to listen and work as a team.  We thoroughly enjoyed the games and will be trying some of them again soon in school.

27th January

We enjoyed an exciting and inspiring day when we were visited by the author Steve Clifford.  He led an assembly then taught us about sentence manipulation.  He set us a challenge to write a story opening in the style of his 'time portal' novels.  We loved reading our stories to Mr Clifford.

Autumn Term 2019-2020


This term our topic is the 'Mysterious Maya' and this will take us on a journey to South America and well into the distant past.  We will look into the customs and beliefs of these ancient people and the geography of the continent.  Follow the links on our supporting learning page to find out more.
