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 ? 5/11/18
In Maths, we have continued our work on division by either grouping or sharing. The children have learnt the division sign and have used practical methods to solve division problems as well and drawing and recording in their books. Here are some examples of the work they have covered.
Next week, we shall be continuing our divisions by 2, 5 and 10 within word problems.
In English, we have continued our work on Non-Chronological Reports. We have used Talk For Writing for recapping our report on pigs and also completed group activities to help us learn the purpose of subheadings and paragraphs. We have then planned and written up our reports and the children have done a great job. Here are a few pictures.
Next week, we are going onto a new unit: Instructions. We shall be looking at a set of instructions and also thinking about the features needed to write a good set of instructions.
In PE, we have carried on with learning about different ways of travelling and also practising our balancing skills. We had to pretend we were at a zoo and as we walked around the zoo, when we saw an animal we turned into that animal and had to travel in that way. When the zoo keeper came, we had to freeze and balance in that position. We then put a sequence of 3 animals together for the children to guess what animal we were travelling as. The children had lots of fun!
In our Project Based Learning, the children have evaluated the houses they built using the diagram below to support them. They have also then planned what they shall make their planes out of ready for their next build.
This week was Anti-Bullying week and the children have been learning about the word 'Respect'. We have discussed what it means to be respectful and the children have come up with some lovely ideas to ensure that we are all happy and feeling respected. They have created Anti-Bullying posters about respect. Here are a couple of pictures:
We have started to learn our Christmas songs for our Nativity. We have also sent out words for your children to learn if they have been given speaking parts. Please can you help your child to practise their words so they are confident. We are really looking forward to our Christmas production this year.
Have a lovely weekend!
Our next steps...
We look forward to another busy half term when we get back - where we will be continuing with multiplication before moving on to division, learning about Bonfire night, Remembrance Day, looking at different types of houses around the World, beginning some gymnastics and making a start on rehearsing and learning songs for our Christmas production! A very exciting half term ahead!
