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 Frozen Planet and we are starting off by looking at the features of Winter in our own country and the meaning of freezing and melting through investigations.

We are using the text, ‘Jack Frost’ by Kazuno Kohara to encourage the children to think about their own experiences of Winter and to create some beautiful artwork using wax relief and lino printing.

The children have planned their own learning and have asked to know more about the Arctic and the animals living there. They have asked some super questions, including ‘does is snow everyday in the South Pole?’ and ‘are polar bears dangerous?’ We will research these as we move through the topic, taking our lead from the children’s interests.

In maths we will continue focussing on numbers 6-10 in more depth, looking at how to represent each number in different ways and how to record sums totalling each number. We will also continue to look at one more and one less and problem solving.

In phonics we are moving on to Phase 3, this will open up a whole new world of reading for the children as they will begin to make more sense of some trickier words. We will continue to focus on letter formation and sentence structure alongside our literacy.

We are still enjoying our new Snuggle Case reading scheme, it has proved very popular with the children and it’s so lovely to read their reviews in the diary.  

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