Class 1 2017 - 2018

Mrs Jobbins

Welcome back after our first 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 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 starting our term off with the classic story of Paddington Bear. The children have already come up with some fantastic questions...

'Where is darkest Peru?', 'Why did his family send him away?', 'How did he travel all the way to England?', 'Does he eat anything else other than marmalade?', 'Who put the label on his coat?'.

These questions will form the basis of our learning over the next few weeks.

We are also preparing for the RSPB British Bird Watch, happening in a few weeks. We will be learning about the different birds that live in our gardens, comparing them to birds of prey and sea birds. We will also look at the ways that we can encourage birds to visit our gardens and school and making some bird boxes to help them nest in the Spring.

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 starting Phase 3 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. We will also be starting guided reading sessions to encourage the children's understanding of books and love of reading.

In Maths we will spend the next few weeks focussing on number recognition, ordering and formation before moving on to look at addition and subtraction. 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.
