Class 1 2017 - 2018

Mrs Jobbins

Welcome back after our first half term in Reception.

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 new equipment; our marvellous water wall, wooden 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.

After a wonderful week of celebrating Diwali just before the half term, we will be continuing our theme of 'Celebrations' by focussing on Bonfire Night and Christmas. We will also be celebrating the closing of apple season by picking the last of the apples from the orchard, ready to take them up to The Random Apple Company to press in to juice.

We will be looking closely at the changes in the seasons and how this affects our environment and the wildlife around us. We will spend some time up at our Woodland School where we will do some creative projects such as winter bird feeders and putting up some winter roost boxes. Autumn watch has begun!

We will then take the children's lead with the planning and follow their interests for what comes next. Watch this space!

In Phonics we will be continuing with Phase 2 of Letters and Sounds. We will be learning through whole class activities, games and small group sessions to put what we have learnt into practise.

All the children have now got a reading book to take home, along with their magnetic letters to support their segmenting and blending.

In Maths we will spend the next two weeks focussing on 2D shapes before moving on to look at money and then addition sums. As ever, we are flexible with our learning and we will adapt our plans to ensure that it suit the needs and interests of our children.

We have a busy few weeks ahead! We look forward to sharing our learning with you soon.
