1LM 2021 - 2022
Welcome to 1LM 2021-2022
My name is Mrs Meyer and I have been at Offley for 22 years. 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.
Well done to all the children for a super week.
In maths this week we have working on adding one to a number and looking for the patterns. We used the tens frames and counters to look at the patterns and what happens to the numbers each time. Then we moved onto subtracting 1 from a number and writing the number equation. We worked practically to try and solve the different problems. In our mastering number sessions this week we have been comparing amounts using the words more and fewer. We met meerkat and dinosaur who helped us with our understanding of the concepts.
In English we continued our Nibbles story and focused on the Giant from Jack and the Beanstalk. We described the giant and then wrote a short diary entry as though we were Nibbles meeting the giant for the first time. We received a letter from all of the characters asking for our help to catch Nibbles and we came up with lots of ideas, such as make a trap and lock all of the books away. We were surprised to find footprints in the wild area on Friday and they all had little clues. We realised that they were telling us what had happened to Nibbles at the end of the story.
We have been continuing our art work this week. The children have been making their own pictures in the style of Ted Harrison. We used a polar bear template on our paper and worked around that. The pictures look amazing.
In science we began work on animals – naming them and grouping them. We looked at lots of different animals and in our next lesson we are looking in more detail at animals that live in the Polar regions.
We started to put our virtual Christmas play together. We are doing the angel and snowflake scenes and are busy learning the songs and the words. We will continue to practise this next week, ready for recording on the 6th December. Remember that costumes need to be in by next Friday 3rd December please.
Thank you for you continued support.
Well done year 1, a super week.
