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 are so excited about welcoming our new starters this September! We have made some changes to our classroom and we can't wait for you to see them!

The transition from home to school will be our main focus; the children's emotional wellbeing is very important to us and we will take our time settling the children and getting to know them.

Our first topic will be 'All About Me' and we will learn all about ourselves and our families, our bodies and staying healthy and the immediate world around us. We have some beautiful new books to share including As We Grow by Libby Waldon and In Every House On Every Street by Jess Hitcham. 

We will spend time with each child, getting to know their interests and abilities and over the coming weeks we will begin to plan our maths and literacy based on the needs of the children. 

We will focus on Phase One phonics, listening for sounds and rhymes; this will be maintained over the coming months and will run alongside Phase Two where we will start to look at individual letter sounds. 

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