Mrs Jobbins

I am Mrs Jobbins and I am the teacher in Reception. I have been working at St John's for 13 years and I feel very passionate about Early Years! Mrs Howarth is always 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.

Welcome back to our final half term.

Our IPC topic is Brilliant Bugs and our children will be scientists for the next few weeks! We will explore different minibeast habitats, identify the key features of an insect and learn all about life cycles.

In Literacy we will link our learning to the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle and What the Ladybird Heard by Julia Donaldson. We will also look at the non-fiction text, The Bee Book by Charlotte Milner.

We will create information books about insects, label diagrams, create story boards and write a short story about the roles of a worker bee.

In Phonics we will continue working through Phase 4, focusing on blends to improve our reading fluency. We will work on our sentence structure and putting our Phase 3 learning into practice.

We will support our handwriting through a dedicated time for letter formation but we will continue to use playdough, dancing, painting and drawing to practice our fine motor skills and build our muscle strength.

In Maths we will continue with our Maths Mastery programme; focusing on the composition of 10, addition and subtraction and learning how to use the rekenreks.

As always, we will adapt and change our plans alongside the children's interests and focus and ensure that they play a key role in what they learn about.

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