1LG 2020 - 2021
Welcome to 1LG's class page!
Hi my name is Miss Garton and I have been teaching at Offley Primary Academy since February. I am really excited about working with you all! At home, I enjoy spending time with my family as well as going to theme parks. We are also very lucky to have Mrs Perry helping us out. Each week I will update 1LG’s website so you can see what goes on inside our classroom.
1LG's P.E slots take place on a Tuesday Morning. Please ensure your child keeps their P.E. kit in school until Christmas.
Children will be given the chance three times a week to change their book in school, Monday, Wednesday and Friday. We are still encouraging the children to read every night. If they use reading eggs at home, please note this down in their diariers as well. Any books that get changed will be quarantined for 72 hours before they can be used again. Because of this, there is not enough books for every child to change their book everyday.
This term our topic will be 'The Jungle'. We will be looking at animals including humans in Science, where we might find Jungles in Geography and Edward Tingatinga in Art. The classroom has also been transformed into a Jungle.
This half term in English we will be looking at 'The Lion inside'. The story is about a mouse who wants to be heard. He discovers that even the smallest animal can have a heart of a lion.
This week we have had so much fun in our Christmas Jumpers all week. We were so excited on Monday. Here are some of the things that we have done this week.
We came to school in our Christmas Jumpers and we had lots of fun looking at others and seeing what theirs said. We started the day with a Zoom assembly from St Mary's where we got to learn about the importance of Christmas in this country and others around the world. Monday afternoon focused on getting the performance filmed. we were very excited and it took many goes to get it filmed. But we kept trying and didn't give up.
PARTY DAY! Today was our party day. We got to come in our own clothes. We started the day with listening to party games and getting our Christmas cards written ready to take home. After playtime we played party games, such as corners, Pin the nose on Rudolph and musical statues. Miss Garton kept picking the empty corners but we were really good at confusing her. For Musical statues we were really good at freezing so Miss Garton kept the music off for a while to see who moved first. We loved Pin the nose on Rudolph. Some of us were really good at this game. We finished the day off with a disco.
Wednesday and Thursday:
Today we watched the Pantomime. We had to split it up into different parts as it was quite long. We watched our own performance that some of us had already seen at home. We played lots of games, did lots of colouring and had lots of fun.
I would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. I can't wait to see you all again in the New Year and to find out what you did. Miss Garton
