Class 1 2019 - 2020

Mrs Jobbins

The teachers in Class One are Mrs Jobbins and Mrs Harris. We also have Miss Short 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.

This half term, we will be focusing on our planet, the environment and the animals within it.

We will start by looking at the story The Messy Magpie, we will learn about life within a forest and how pollution can negatively impact the life there. We will learn about the importance of recycling and how we can separate the materials at a recycling centre. We will also learn about the properties of these materials,  and we will make new objects by reusing some recyclable objects from home.

In maths, we will be focusing on number bonds to 10 and recognising, ordering and creating numbers 11-20. We will also be supporting the children to investigate their own maths problems through challenges, questioning and new and interesting resources.

In phonics we will continue with our phase 3 digraphs and trigraphs; it is such an exciting phase as it opens up a whole world of reading, things really begin to make sense! We will support our phonics learning by attempting to write simple sentences and labels.

We are looking forward to our trip to the Sea Life Centre in Manchester, where we will link our learning about different animals and the affects of climate change and pollution on our environment.

We are also looking forward to STEM week where we will test the properties of materials, carry out a floating and sinking investigation and make recycled planters and seed bombs.

We are still enjoying our new Snuggle Case reading scheme, it has proved very popular with the children and it’s so lovely to read their reviews in the diary.  

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