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.
What a super week again.
In maths, we have been solving number equations by counting on. We have been remembering to count on from the greatest number. We used objects and number lines to help us. The children have been using the 10s frames and counters to show how to make the 10 first. I have been very impressed with how they solved the number equations.
In English we continued our work on Nibbles the Book Monster. This week he has been nibbling his way through some story books and we have been thinking about how the characters in those stories were feeling. The first book was Red Riding Hood and we were surprised that the wolf in the story was very sorry for his actions. Then we moved onto Jack and the Beanstalk. We talked about the story and on Friday had a go at describing the giant.
All this week we have been thinking about anti bullying week. We had a special assembly on Monday and got to wear odd socks on Tuesday. The children looked at the following video
To follow on from this, we have been doing lots of circle time activities about respect and friendships.
The children then talked about qualities of a good friend and sorted the pictures to show what makes a good friend. The children then wrote some key words on the hands.
In Science, we have been continuing to look at the properties of different materials. We worked as a class to plan an investigation around absorbency. Mr Barton has asked us to check which material is the best for his cleaning cloths. We listed a variety of materials we could use and next week we are going to be testing them.
The children had a super PE lesson - using different movements to travel to the different planets. We did quarter and half turns, side to side jumps and hops. The children were very imaginative.
In Geography we have been looking at the UK and the four countries in the UK. We found them on a map and had a go at labelling them. We talked about where we live and that Sandbach is in England.
We started our Christmas songs this week for our performance. The children are really enjoying them and are doing well to learn the words.
On Friday we supported children in need by dressing up in sporty clothes. We joined in with the Joe Wickes workout which the children enjoyed.
Next week we are celebrating Offley being 50 years old. We have a special day planned for Monday and lots of visitors will be coming back to the school.
On Thursday we are off to the airport. The children are very excited. Here is a link to the website so you can see some of the activities we will be doing.
Have a great weekend.
Mrs Meyer and Miss Winstanley
