2LM 2017 - 2018
Welcome to 2LM
My name is Mrs Meyer and I have been at Offley for 18 years. I have been teaching for 2 years in Hertfordshire and then here in Cheshire. I am currently the acting Key Stage 1 leader as well as the Religious Education coordinator here at Offley and also have responsibility for SMSC (Social, moral, spiritual and cultural learning.), Rights Respecting Schools and global learning.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 2LM.
PE will be on a Tuesday and Friday 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 ICT although we will be using ICT 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.
The children will be bringing spellings home next Friday and I know they are very keen to start.
I hope you have had a lovely Summer. It has been lovely seeing the children again and am very pleased that they are all keen and eager to learn.Our new topic is chocolate, which we will be linking to how we make choices. The children are currently deciding on their project, which they will be planning over the next few weeks.
Keep checking the web page for further updates.
Our week 12/1/18
What a super first full week. The children have worked hard again this week and are already loving our topic.
In maths we continued with our work on multiplication and had a go at making arrays. An array is an arrangement of objects, pictures, or numbers in columns and rows. The children had to look at the arrays and write the number sentences for each one. After we had done it a few times practically, we swapped it around and the children drew the arrays for the number sentences.
In English we started our new book, Tom and the Dinosaur Egg. We have been mapping the story all week and really know the introduction well. I was very impressed with the ideas that the children came up with and how quickly they learnt the actions.
In Geography we have been learning about the four countrieas of the UK. We will be linking this to our History where we will be learning about Mary Anning, the famous English paleontologist as well as looking at where is the Uk dinosaurs have been found. We found the countries and labelled them on a map, found the capital cities as well as looked as the national symbols for each country.
In science we finished our materials work. The children had to look at different materials around the classroom and see if they could be changed in shape by bending, twisting, squashing.
We spent a little bit of time writing our class assembly this week. The children came up with the ideas themselves and we agreed that our assembly should be a little bit about chocolate and then move onto dinosaurs. The lines have been given out and I am pleased that some children have learnt their lines already.
Another fab week in 2LM!
Have a wonderful weekend.
