Class 1 2020 - 2021

Mrs Jobbins

I am Mrs Jobbins and I am the teacher in Reception. I have been working at St John's for 12 years now and I feel very passionate about Early Years! Mrs Howarth and Miss Short will always be on hand 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 have a very busy half term ahead of us!

Our new IEYC topic is ‘The World Around Us'. We will start our term off by exploring the nature we have around us, from pebbles to trees. We'll link our exploring to the story of The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson. We will take part in the Great British Birdwatch at the end of January and learn about the local species we have around us. 
The children often take our learning off in lots of new directions and we will continue to be led by their ideas. We hope to look at recycling and how we can play a big role in caring for our environment.

In literacy we will focus on putting our phonics into practise through sentence writing, labelling, book making and researching and writing out simple facts. 

In maths we will continue our focus on numbers, moving on to look at pairs of numbers, combining 2 numbers using a part-whole model and then length and height and time.

In phonics we will finish Phase 2 single sounds before starting to look at the Phase 4 blends. We will then start the exciting Phase 3 phase where we will learn new digraphs. This is where the reading gets really exciting! 

We are planning lots more fantastic art projects, firstly looking at Andy Goldsworthy and his transient art pieces made from natural resources.

In science we will explore ice and how it is formed, we will look at the parts of a tree and the importance of roots and leaves. We will also look at the features of different birds for their environment. 

Thank you to all parents for your continued support; it is so lovely to see all of your Tapestry uploads and comments in reading records.

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