1LM 2019 - 2020
Welcome to 1LM 's class page!
2019 - 2020
My name is Mrs Meyer and I have been at Offley for 20 years. I have been teaching for 2 years in Hertfordshire and then here in Cheshire. I am currently the MFL coordinator here at Offley.I have taught in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 during my time at Offley. I live with my husband and three children on the Wirral and love walking my dog along the beach near my house.
Here is a bit of information about 1LM.
PE will be on a so please ensure PE kits are in for those days. There is a timetable on here so that you can see what we are doing. (We have put a slot for computing although we will be using computing as and when is appropriate through all areas )
Reading books -Children are asked each morning to place their planners and books in the basket IF they need to change their book. 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.
Once again we will be hosting Science week in school. This event allows our pupils to get involved with hands on experiments and listen to science and engineering professionals. We want to engage pupils in jobs for the future and this is a great insight for them, so please come and share your skills and passion for science and engineering. Examples of previous helpers:
• Structural engineers doing a hands on experiment teaching how to make structures out of spaghetti and paper
• Nurse – teaching children first aid
• Forensic team - setting up a crime scene and getting the children to solve the crime
These are just a few of the ideas that we have had in previous years, so if you know anyone who could spare half a day or even an hour, then we would love to hear from you. Please call the school office on 01270 685355 to express your interest or email email@example.com or see Miss Allan or Mrs Till.
Science week is Monday 9th March – Friday 13th March 2020
Well done year 1, we have had a super week.
In maths this week we have started to look at numbers up to 40. We have had a go at ordering the numbers and then making the amounts using the 10s frames. We had a go at making 10 and counting on.
We continued our Lion Inside story by looking at the character of the lion and then comparing him to the mouse. We worked together to try and see how the mouse can change to become more like the lion.
In science we looked at different animals. We wrote the animal names and then sorted them into groups. Our groups were all different and very imaginative.
In RE we started looking at the stories that Jesus told. This week we read the story of The Lost Sheep. We talked about the choices that the shepherd made and then discussed what we would do if we were in that situation. We made a conscience alley and our own shepherd had to make her decision when she got to the end.
We continued our art work for the term by looking at our artist Edward Tingatinga. The children recognised his pictures from the Tinga Tinga tales stories. We learnt all about him and the style of art work that he produced. On Friday we started to experiment with print making and will be using these ideas next week to create our own pieces of artwork.
In computing we continued looking at the internet, this week looking at a database. We chose the Cbeebies home screen to look at and enjoyed looking at the different areas of the website and clicking on the different icons.
Well done 1LM, a super week with lots of hard work. Have a lovely weekend.
Finally, here are some useful links that you might want to look at.
