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.

Our wonderful Reception children have settled so well in to life at St John's and we are very proud of them.

We will spend the next few weeks focussing on Celebrations and Festivals. We will start by looking at the book Sparks in the Sky to help us understand and celebrate Bonfire Night; the book will help draw out some of our own experiences as the story follows Bo and Leo and how they celebrate.

We will then celebrate the Hindu festival of Diwali, a celebration full of colour and fascinating stories. We will be baking, creating colourful artwork and learning all about the story of Rama and Sita.

In Maths we will continue on our journey through the numbers. We have looked in depth at numbers one to five before half term and now we will focus on numbers six to ten. We will use numicon, dice, dominoes, multi link and number lines to help us investigate how these numberals are formed, where they appear within a number line and how we can make them through addition and subtraction sums.

We will continue our learning about Autumn, hibernation and seasons through the beautifully illustrated book 'Tree, Seasons Come and Seasons Go'. Now that our hedgehog house is in position on the school grounds, we hope a resident will make good use of it soon.

We will be continuing with Phase 2 daily phonics where we will focus on single sounds, segmenting and blending. 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.

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!
