HAPPY NEW YEAR!
2019 ...let's make it good one!
Our new theme for this half term is...
In English this week, we have begun to learn the story of the Willow Pattern Plot. The children have looked at the Willow Pattern on a plate and have listened to the story. They learnt the story through Talk for Writing and have the retold the story, which has created a lovely writing display in our classroom. Next week, we shall continue our work based on this story and begin to add our own ideas to change parts of the story. We shall also be looking into what features are needed to write a good story.
In Maths this week we have been learning about addition and subtraction. We have used the STEM sentences:
'If the whole is unknown we add the parts' and 'If the part is unknown we need to subtract'.
We have been using concepts such as:
We have been adding 3 1digit numbers:
And balancing equations:
We have been using our knowledge of number bonds to 10 to help us to add:
Next week, we shall be using these skills to answer word problems.
In science, we have been starting to learn about Living and Non-Living things. We explored the wild area and then discussed our findings.
In RE, we have begun to learn about Buddhism.
In Art, we have begun to learn about Primary and Secondary colours and we all had a go at creating our own colour wheels by mixing primary colours to make secondary colours, which the children really enjoyed.
In Geography this week, we have begun to learn about our new topic and country 'China'. We learnt lots of interesting facts about the population, animals, food, oceans etc. We even had a go at Tai Chi!!
We cannot wait for another fun and exciting week next week with our new topic. The children are so engaged in it!
We look forward to finding out more about Chinese New Year too!
Please remember PE Kits on Tuesday and Wednesday!
Mrs Harrop (was Miss Munro until last year!)
I have worked at Offley for about 13 years. I have mainly been in Year 1, Year 2 and Year 3, but have had the opportunity to teach in all year groups for a couple of terms too. I live in Scholar Green with my husband, 2 little girls and our Lhasa Apso dog called Harley. We designed and built our own house and it is an ongoing project that we are very excited about and enjoy doing. We love to go out for walks and finding new places to visit for days out!
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 and Tyler). 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.
