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 long term planning is focussing on 'How is it made?' We will use the story of Iggy Peck, Architect to inspire us to design and construct. We will visit local landmarks and look at famous landmarks and use a range of construction materials to help us build and create replicas. We will carry out STEM investigations to see if we build bridges that will carry heavy weights.

We will use the story of the three little pigs to help us consider the materials that we build with, we will compare the properties and decide which materials we would use to build a house for a teddy in order to keep it dry. We will also research houses in different countries to see how they differ to our own.

We will be designing and making our own toy cars then testing them to see how effective they are. 

Our chicks will be returning and we will continue caring for them until they are big enough to be away from the heat lamp full time. The children have loved reading to them every day.

In Maths we will start off by revisiting odd and even numbers and looking at word problems.We will also continue with our mastery approach to learning numbers 15-20.

We are preparing the transition in to Year One now, encouraging the children to work more independently and spending time with their future classmates and teacher.

Everyone will also be continuing our Phase 3 phonics, looking at our new digraphs ad trigraphs to help support our reading and writing skills whilst we continue to read for understanding and comprehension. We will also be looking at the blends in Phase 4 to help us read longer and more complex words.

The children all 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!
