1SB 2018 - 2019

Miss Barlow


Welcome to 1SB!

My name is Miss Barlow and I have been a part of the Offley team since 2015. I have previously worked with the fabulous Early Years team as a teaching assistant and then completed my teacher training at Offley working alongside the lovely children and members of staff in Year 2. In my spare time I enjoy walking, running and camping. Over the last couple of years I have conquered Fairfield horseshoe, Black Mountain range, Snowdonia and Ben Nevis; this year I am extremely looking forward to tackling Helvellyn! 



Phonics screening:
This will happen the week begining the 11th June and will continue throughout the week with various children. On the spelling page I have put an attachment of last years phonics quiz just so you can get an idea of what it looks like. A sound sheet was given out at parents evening and I have also attached a spare one too on the spelling page above. 

Cardigans: A few cardigans/jumpers have gone walkabouts since the start of this year; please check the labels on the cardigans/jumpers that have been brought home just incase any have been picked up by mistake. Thank you!

PE Kits
In 1SB we have PE on a Monday and a Thursday. The children will need a pair of black shorts, a white t-shirt and a pair of black pumps.  

Mystery reader
In 1SB we love having mystery readers on a Wednesday afternoon at approximately 2:45. As a mystery reader you can bring a book from home; possibly a favourite of yours and you can share this book with the children! The mystery reader is kept a secret from the children and we like to have a big reveal after you enter the classroom. If you would like to be a mystery reader please let me know and book a slot! I currently have all slots available this half term!

Thankyou to all of our mystery readers so far! The children love it!

Reading Books
During guided reading time the children are given time to change their books if it is needed. Children receive a red book sticker if they read 4 times a week! If they have enough stickers by the end of the term they get to attend the reading challenge treat! As a class incentive, if the children read 4x a week their name goes into a pot. If their name gets pulled out they win a prize! The more names the more chance of winning a prize.

The children have previously received a username and login for Prodigy. It is an online game which encourages the children to practice their maths skills. It will ask you to log in and then set up a character and play the game! The questions that are answered both correctly and incorrectly will guage any further questions.



This week in maths the children have been improving their fluency of halving and doubling facts as well as recapping bar models.  

This week in English the children have been writing a descriptive piece based on what it would be like at a World Cup match. The children have been using adjectives to describe what they would be able to see, hear, feel, taste and smell at a World Cup match. There ideas are fantastic!  

This week in Science we have been experimenting with different materials to see which one would be the best at drying up the giant’s tears!

In art this week we have been looking at Andy Goldsworthy's work and we have been making our own giants in the style of this artist. 

Next week we will be having making cakes for the giant and enjoying a teddy bears picnic (Tuesday).   In English e will also be writing up a menu for the giant. In maths we will be looking at the capacity of different sized containers as well as measuring parts of our giants body.

NEXT WEEK: With it being the last week in year 1 the children will be bring their books home. If you happen to have any spare carrier backs to bring in so that the children can put their books into one that would be great! Do not worry if not as I will make sure there are spare bags. We will be sending books home a few a day so that they are easier to carry. Cannot believe how fast this year has gone!
