Class 1 2020 - 2021

Mrs Jobbins

I am Mrs Jobbins and I am the teacher in Reception. I have been working at St John's for 12 years now 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.

We are excited to welcome the children back for this final half term!

This half term we are exploring the wonderful world of mini beasts. We will start by going on a hunt to see which mini beasts live in our garden and then we will design and build a mini beast hotel for them to live in. We will discover what we already know about these mini beasts and decide what wonderful things we would like to find out about. 

Taking our lead from the children we will research our favourite mini beasts and look at their features before making a class information book.

We will observe and sketch, look at patterns and sort mini beasts. We will create art work, bake and explore lots of different small world sets ups in our tuff tray.

We will aim to map out and write our very own story with a bee theme. There’s so much to look forward to!

In phonics we will be completing our Phase3 journey. We are doing so well with segmenting and blending more complex words now and we will be putting everything we have learnt into practice by continuing with our sentence writing skills.

In maths we will start by focusing on doubling, this fits in perfectly with our mini beast topic as we will be matching spots on ladybirds and legs on ants!  We will also look at halving, sharing and counting in twos.

We will begin our transition into Year One with some personalised PSHE sessions, focusing on change and facing new challenges. 

Thank you to all parents for your continued support; it is so lovely to see all of your Tapestry uploads and comments in reading records.

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