1LG 2021 - 2022
Welcome to 1LG's class page!
Hi my name is Miss Garton and I have been teaching at Offley Primary Academy since February. I am really excited about working with you all! At home, I enjoy spending time with my family as well as going to theme parks. We are also very lucky to have Mrs Perry helping us out. Each week I will update 1LG’s website so you can see what goes on inside our classroom.
1LG's P.E slots take place on a Friday afternoon. Please ensure your child keeps their P.E. kit in school until Summer.
Children will be given the chance three times a week to change their book in school, Monday, Wednesday and Friday. We are still encouraging the children to read every night. If they use reading eggs at home, please note this down in their diariers as well. Any books that get changed will be quarantined for 72 hours before they can be used again. Because of this, there is not enough books for every child to change their book everyday.
This term our class topic is fairy tales and fantasy. Miss Garton has decorated the classroom with dragons made out of paper plates, bunting and our reading area is a castle. We have also got a Beanstalk growing in the corner. We can’t wait to learn all about fairy tales throughout this term.
This half term in English we are going to be focusing on the story ‘Goldilocks and Just One Bear’ by Leigh Hodgkinson. It is about Little Bear from the original story getting lost on a walk in the city. He accidently bumps into someone he knows and causing mayhem.
This week in English we focused on planning and writing our final piece on Goldilocks and Just One Bear. On Monday and Tuesday we chose our own animal and planned all the sections and began writing independently on Tuesday. We finished the week checking our work against a success criteria. We completed this independently and worked hard to edit our work and include everything.
In maths this week we have focused on shape. We began this week completing a worksheet all about our knowledge we learnt in lockdown. We then had a lesson exploring the shapes and given the opportunity to see if they rolled or not. The rest of the week we had a carousel of activities on every table. Some of the activities included ipad games, designing our own pattern and finding the odd one out. We really enjoyed this week.
This week in French we continued to look at shapes. We learnt what a circle, rectangle, triangle and square are in French. We worked hard on our pronunciation and completed a sheet recapping our work on colours.
We have had 2 PSHE lessons this week both focusing on different areas. The first session we had focused on following instructions, listening to each other and being a kind friend. We had lots of discussions about what it means to be and how we can be kind. We then went outside and played a game of Traffic lights and we worked hard to follow the instructions. We moved onto listening to each other by drawing pictures following instructions. We finished the session by working as a class to get a hoop all the way around without letting go and causing a break. We managed it! Miss Garton was so impressed with our team work skills.
Our second session focused on Helathy Eating with Miss Allan. We started the sesiion speaking about what food is healthy and what isn’t and what we should eat in moderation. We used our ipad to collect data using different food packaging to see how many sugar cubes were in each object. We were very surprised by the results. We had lots of fun doing this activity.
Have a lovely weekend and see you on Monday for our final week in year 1. Miss Garton
