Class 1 2018 - 2019

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.

We are so excited to be back just as the season is changing, we are seeing signs of Spring all aorund us and with it, lots of opportunities for learning and exploring.

Our long term planning is focussing on Paws, Claws and Whiskers but the children have taken a really strong interest and enthusiasm for learing all about endangered species and the impact that humans are having on our planet. With this in mind we will focus on our local wildlife and how we can encourage and promote it. We will read our first story of the term, The Messy Magpie and we will put up bird boxes, plant wildflower seeds, explore recycling and keeping our environment tidy and digging out our allotment ready for this years planting to begin.

We will then widen our learning to look at some of the endangered species around the world. We will support this learning with a trip to the zoo to learn more about the work being done around conservation.

We have some beautiful new books that we will be looking at over the next few weeks. Red Alert! By Catherine Barr and Anne Wilson. The Messy Magpie, a twinkl original, The Hunter by Paul Geraghty, Disappearing Acts by Isabella Bunnell and How to Help a Hedgehpg and Protect a Polar Bear by Jess French and Angela Keoghan.

In Maths we will start off by focussing on capacity, using our large outdoor water tray to encourage the children to use vocabulary related to measuring liquids. We will also be looking at weighing using both balancing scales and weighted scales. Our giant scales both indoors and outdoors continue to be a source of fascination for the children.

Some of us will be consolidating our learning of Phase 2 phonics where we will focus on single sounds, segmenting and blending. We will also be continue our Phase 3 phonics, looking at our new digraohs ad trigraphs to help support our reading and writing skills whilst we continue to read for understanding and comprehension.

The children all now have a school reading book and tricky words to practice and we are grateful for all the parental support with reading at home, the progress is just so wonderful to see.

We will now have weekly home learning challenges where the children will be encouraged to continue their learning at home through hands on, practical activities as well as writing/maths activties related to our learning in school.

The PE sessions will continue to run on a Tuesday with Mr Hodgson. The children are focussing on spatial awareness, listening and responding to instructions and gross motor skills in the morning with more of a focus on games and gymnastics in the afternoon.

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