1JE 2018 - 2019
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 have been writing super descriptions of settings. We started the week looking at a beach setting, thinking about super adjectives that we could use and also practising using simple and compound sentences.The children then went on to independently writing a description of a haunted forest setting, which they did extremely well with. At the end of the week we created mood music to go with the picture of the haunted forest, thinking about volume, pitch and pace for the music.
In Maths, we have been going over missing number problems, number bonds to 20 and also doubling and halving.
In Art, the children looked at the artist Andy Goldsworthy and created their own natural sculptures outside of Giants.
In Pe, we played team games and created our own games.
Can we take this opportunity to thank your child for the super homework they have brought in this term. Here is a picture of some of the fantastic work produced. We know you put a lot of time and effort into these and we really appreciate the support in your child's learning.
Next week we shall be having lots of fun in Year 1 for our final week together.
Have a lovely weekend.
