Class 1 2018 - 2019

Mrs Jobbins

The teachers in Class One are Mrs Jobbins and Mrs Harris. We also have Mrs Roberts to help us with our learning.

Our big classroom is made up of lots of areas for us to explore and investigate. We also love to play outside and in our purpose built outdoor classroom 'The Den'. 

Our outdoor space is full of wonderful wooden equipment; our marvellous water wall, play house, rope and pulley system, den posts and story telling throne are just the beginning! We look forward to making the most of it all and seeing lots of wonderful conversations and moments of learning.

We are excited to be back after the Christmas holidays and we will start this term by focusing on fairytales, with our first one being Cinderella. We will learn about the features of a fairytale, ways to describe the characters and how to retell stories through role play, writing and story maps. We will use the next few weeks to prepare us for the national story telling week starting on the 26th January.

The fairtales that we learn about might also play a role in helping us to learn some new maths concepts. We will be looking at measuring (characters foortprints!) and time, as well as continuing our mastery maths approach to numbers 11-20.

We will also be looking at the history of castles and who might have lived there, designing our own castles and introducing a new artist to inspire our artwork.

We will be consolidating our learning of Phase 2 phonics where we will focus on single sounds, segmenting and blending. We will also be introducing Phase 3 phonics, moving on to more digraphs to support our reading skills.

The children all now have a school reading book and tricky words to practice and we are grateful for all the parental support with reading at home, the progress is just so wonderful to see.

The PE sessions will continue to run on a Tuesday with Mr Hodgson. The children are focussing on spatial awareness, listening and responding to instructions and gross motor skills in the morning with more of a focus on games and gymnastics in the afternoon.

We are so excited to share our learning with you over the coming weeks. Keep an eye out for photos!
