Class 1 2019 - 2020

Mrs Jobbins

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.

Our topic this half term is 'Celebrations'. We will look at the history and traditions of Bonfire Night by looking at the story of Guy Fawkes and a story of experiences called 'Sparks in the Sky'. We will spend time looking at the Hindu festival of Diwali and the story of Rama and Sita.

We will focus on when our birthdays are and how we all like to celebrate our special day and of course, we will look at the traditions, stories and experiences behind Christmas.

Now I have returned from Uganda, we will continue our learning about life in Kamutuuza Tower Primary School. We have lots of new resources to explore and the photos have inspired lots of questions and discussions. Thank you for all the amazing donations, they were so gratefully received.

In Phonics we will continue with Phase Two of Letters and Sounds, focussing on segmenting and blending. We will use our phonic skills to read and write simple sentences with the addition of 'tricky words' that are less decodeable. 

In Maths we will continue focussing on one number at a time, thinking about how it can be represented and broken down in to other numbers. We will be strating with the number 5. We will explore addition and subtraction sums and how we can represent them with practical objects such as multi link and numicon or numbers.

We will also look at the properties of 2D shapes, comparing and ordering objects according to size, length and height.

In Literacy we will practice identifying and writing all or parts of our name, mark making, simple sentence writing and enjoying stories together.

We are really enjoying our story vote each morning and we are introducing a new Snuggle with a Book scheme aimed to encourage all of our families to share reading time at home.

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