1LM 2019 - 2020
Welcome to 1LM 's class page!
2019 - 2020
My name is Mrs Meyer and I have been at Offley for 20 years. I have been teaching for 2 years in Hertfordshire and then here in Cheshire. I am currently the MFL coordinator here at Offley.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 1LM.
PE will be on a 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 computing although we will be using computing 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.
Our week in 1LM
Another brilliant week in year 1. The children have been showing me just how confident they are and have been tackling new challenges really well.
The children will have their spelling stuck in their planners now. We will give new spellings out on a Friday and they will be tested on those words on the following Friday. We will be doing a lot of work throughout the week on those words to support them. It would be great if you help your child to practise these – perhaps have the words around the house for them to look at.
The children have come home today with their first homework pack and book. These are activities based on the work we are doing in class. Please take time to go through some of the activities and bring them in when they are completed. We are looking forward to seeing them.
We have a student teacher working with us this year. Her name is Miss Winstanley and she knows the children really well as she helped out last year and worked in the Mini Zone. The children have made her feel very welcome and she is very excited to be helping teaching with them all.
We have had such a busy week.
In maths we started the week by looking at numbers up to 10. We focused on where the numbers are in relation to eachother and had a go at completing missing number problems. We have also been looking at 1 more and 1 less than different amounts. The children have been playing games together, looking at the numbers on a number line and solving problems.
In English we started to read The Hundred Decker Bus. We listened to the story, acted it out and then sequenced the events. This helped us to write some sentences about the story and what the bus driver was doing. We used our phonics brilliantly and produced some wonderful sentences.
In science we started to look at different materials around the classroom and had a go at labelling the objects with the material they are made from. The children could name the materials confidently - I was very impressed!
In computing the children have been taught about being safe online. We watched a special video about Hector the whale and how he stays safe on the computer.
We started our project work on transport this week. Our first task was to think about the different types of transport that there are and as a group they made a list of the different ones that they know. The children thought of examples that even I hadn’t thought about.
In French we have started our work on greetings. The children listened to a song about how to say hello and goodbye and it didn't take long before they were all singing the song together.
A fabulous week - the children are loving being together and we have had a fun week together. I am really looking forward to our work next week.
Next week we will be starting our work on the book Lost and Found by Oliver Jeffers. The children will be doing some drama before starting the text work.
Have a wonderful weekend.
Mrs Meyer and Miss Winstanley
