Home Learning

Dear Parents/Carers

During these unprecedented times, we are aware that children will need to continue their learning from home. With this in mind, we have prepared a range of resources to support your child/children at home. We recognise that this unique situation presents many challenges but would welcome all the support you can provide during the period of closure. In addition, immediate feedback will assist the children in tackling their lack of understanding or any errors that they may make.

Unfortunately, we will be unable to formally mark and feedback on such large quantities of work when we return. To support with this, we would welcome feedback as appropriate. To access support with learning, when completing planned activities, you should email the Class Teacher (email provided below). As you can appreciate, this will work efficiently if support is requested when it is necessary. We will aim to respond as we become aware of emails promptly during the hours (9am-4pm term time only). Resources and links will be continually updated to ensure you have access to the best possible resources to support learning at home.

Class Teacher email: mdodd@eckingtonfirst.worcs.sch.uk (Mon-Fri)

See below for further information.

When searching for appropriate activities for your children search for specific national year group objectives e.g. Year 4 round any number to the nearest 10, 100 or 1,000

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!

STEM DAYS 7&8 JANUARY 2020

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.
