Welcome to Eckington C of E


Caring and Sharing... Believing and Achieving Together.

Eckington Curriculum

Topic format:

Ø Super Start - to engage pupils in an exciting way, grab them with a ‘hook’ into learning

Ø Range of Learning Opportunities - focus days, enquiry based approach, children's areas of interest

Ø Use of Quality Texts

Ø Fantastic Finish - to share learning with others, evaluation

Some of the topics we have developed:

Amazing Amazon – trip to Botanical Gardens

Ocean Explorers (Galapagos Islands and Charles Darwin) - visit to Sea life Centre

Fire! Fire! (don’t give anything away, but we always set fire to ‘pudding lane’ on the playing field)

Growth and Green Fingers – trip to Garden Centre, gardening plots in the school grounds

Food Glorious Food (culminating in an enterprise week where children planned, made and sold items at our enterprise fayre) – visiting chef

Below are our current long term planning documents for each year group.

In Reception and Key Stage 1, children have access to mathletics to support their maths skills and have occasional homework tasks. Key Stage 2 classes are given a weekly homework learning task.  These are given out every Friday on a 3 week rota of topic, English, Maths.  The homework is due back the following Thursday.  Alongside this all children are given weekly spellings to learn and reading books to share with their parents.
