Class 1 2023 - 2024

Mrs Jobbins

I am Mrs Jobbins and I am the teacher in Reception. I feel very passionate about Early Years! Mrs Howarth and Mrs Woolley are 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 the second half of the Autumn term!

This half term we will start off our learning by focusing on the festivals of Bonfire Night (5th November) and the Hindu celebration of Diwali (starting on 12th November). We will compare the similarities and differences between these two festivals and look at the history behind them. 

We will use non fiction texts to help us learning about the traditions of each festival and we will use stories such as Sparks in the Sky, The Best Diwali Ever and Lighting A Lamp. 

We will learn lots of exciting new words that we will add to our own pictures as well as acting out scenes from the stories and learning about speech bubbles.

We will also be learning all about the changes in seasons and weather. We will create diaries to track the weather patterns and see how it changes as we move further in to Winter and we will investigate freezing and melting. We will use stories such as The Little Cloud and Once Upon a Raindrop to introduce us to the water cycle and inspire our writing. 

In phonics we will continue to practise our segmenting and blending skills whilst we continue learning the Phase 2 sounds. We will have lots of opportunities for mark making and forming some letters that are now more familiar. 

In maths we will learn how to subitise (recognise a quantity without counting), compare groups, saying which one has more or fewer and positional language. We will also learn about what makes a careful counter.

This half term we will be creating some larger scale art pieces; mehndi patterns and clay work to celebrate Diwali, bold colours (and glitter!) to show fireworks and transient art to represent different weathers. 

We have so much to look forward to over the coming weeks and we are so excited to share our learning with you.
