1JE 2017 - 2018
Welcome to 1JE's class page.
Parent Information: Our PE days are Monday and Thursday, please can you make sure your child has their kit in and comes to school without jewellery on these days. Please can you also provide a bobble to tie long hair up if appropriate.
Reading books - They are then given time during the day to go and change their books. They are also given the opportunity and asked in a small group after their guided reading session. Some children do change their books every day but others don't seem to be doing so. Thank you to the parents who have sent their child back in at the end of the day or have come to us to say they haven't changed it. It is much easier for us to remind your child if you have asked us as we don't have time to collect in and go through 30 planners every day. From Monday, children will be asked each morning to place their planners and books in a certain place IF they need to change their book so that we can remind those children to change their books.
We have 2 new teachers!
Mrs Harrop teaches on Monday and Tuesday and Mrs Jones teaches on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
Here is a little bit of information about us!
Mrs Harrop (was Miss Munro until last year!)
I have worked at Offley for about 13 years. I have mainly been in Year 2 and Year 3, but had the opportunity to teach in all year groups for a term too. I live in Scholar Green with my husband, 2 little girls, a nearly 4 year old a 15 month old and we have a Lhasa Apso dog. We designed and built our own house and it is an ongoing project that we are very excited about and enjoy doing.
I have been teaching now for 9 years. I have been at Offley for 3 years. I have mainly taught years 1 and 2, however last year I had the opportunity to work in Year 4. I live in Congleton with my husband and my two little boys (Jack who is 5 and Tyler who is 9 months). We also have a dog called Barney so our house is a very busy household! In my spare time I take part in Amateur Dramatic shows down at the Daneside Theatre in Congleton. I also enjoy going skiing with my family and spending time with family and friends. It is great to be back at Offley and I look forward to working with you all.
In English, we started the week by recapping our stories and writing them up neatly for display. The are looking fantastic and the children have put in so much effort in their work. We then moved on to looking at WANTED posters. The children spent time thinking of adjectives to describe the giant and used 'role on the wall' to do this. Some super adjectives were created. We then looked at an example of a good wanted poster and picked out the features. We then had a go at writing our own posters on Friday.
In Maths, we have been looking at money. First we spent time becoming familiar with the coins and their values. By the end of the week we were having a go at adding amounts/coins together. We still need to think carefully which coins we can use to make an amount and remember there are no such thing as 3p coins etc.
Thank you to everyone who came and supported the children's sports day. The weather was beautiful and the children had a fantastic day! Well done to the children for taking part and trying their best!
We are getting lots of fantastic homework coming in. Please keep them coming. The classroom is slowly getting taken over by beanstalks and castles!
Here are a couple of our displays showing some fantastic WRITING, ART WORK and HOMEWORK.
Thank you for your support this half term and we look forward to welcoming back the children for our final half term in Year 1.
Have a lovely half term.
