2HJ 2018 - 2019
We hope you have had a fantastic Summer break and we are looking forward to a fun first term!
Mrs Harrop works on a Monday and Tuesday and Mrs Jones works the rest of the week.
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.
What we have been up to this week:
In Maths, we have been using what we have learnt about place value to add numbers. We have used number lines to add on 1 digit to 2 digit numbers by jumping along the line.
In Guided reading this week we have looked at the book ' The True Story of the Three Little Pigs'. We completed a reading comprehension and discussed similarities and differences between this book at the original 'Three Little Pigs' story.
In English, we have been focusing on planning our stories and then we began to write our final story using the Talk for Writing maps we created last week. The children have worked really hard and produced some super stories that we are very proud of!
In Art, we have been looking at pig portraits and created a mini scrapbook of our favourite images of pigs. This is in preparation for next week, when we shall be having a go at making our own pig portraits.
In Science, we have continued looking at materials and their everyday uses, thinking about why certain materials are chosen for certain things.
In Music, we have recapped our knowledge of the musical vocabulary such as Dynamics, Beat, Pulse, Rythm and Tempo. We then learnt the 'Poor 3 little pigs' song (to the tune 3 Blind Mice) and practised beating out the rythm and changing the dynamics of the song.
In PE, we have continued exploring with movement to go with the beginning of the story, where the pigs leave home. We worked in groups to create a sequence of movement to perform to the music 'Skipping Along'.
We shall be finishing our story writing in English and then move on to learning about and writing character descriptions based on our topic text 'Pigs Might Fly'. In Maths, we shall continue adding numbers and begin to add 2 2 digit numbers. We shall be continuing our work in Science on materials and also our dance and music in PE and Music. We shall also be thinking about Harvest and thinking about how different countries celebrate it. We shall link this to our Geography and recap the continents.
Have a lovely weekend!
