Year 1 and 2 Autumn 2 Overview

Hunstanton Homework Grid Autumn 2

 

 

 

Mr D Hartley

Hello, my name is Doug Hartley and I’ve been teaching so long I’ve forgotten the year I started, it was some time in the last century.  After retiring, I became a supply teacher because I missed being in a classroom working with children.  I came to Greyfriars in 2018 and enjoyed working here so much I applied for a permanent post.  I am pleased to be part of this hard working team.  
My classroom mantra is ” ‘I can and I will,’ said the little red train as it puffed up the hill.”  Ask your children to tell you the story.  
Outside of school I enjoy model making and spending time with  my family, especially my grandchildren.

Hello Squirts,

I hope you have worked hard and enjoyed all your learning this week.

It was great to see you all today and be able to teach you via video link. I enjoyed it very much but it was unusual seeing and hearing you but not being in the classroom with you. It was also strange only being able to see so few of you at a time. It was much better when some of you came over to the other side of the classroom so the camera on the laptop could pick you up.

Homework WELL DONES for this week go to ELLA, FREYA and Harper – photos below.

Ella’s list of rules.

Freya’s Ferris Wheel.

Harper – Things in her house that run on electricity.

 

 

This week’s spellings:

Sound: ir    girl, bird, shirt, first.

Sound: ue (oo)    blue, glue, true, clue.

Sound: ue (u)     due, hue, cue, rescue.

Remember – learn the sounds and they’re easy!

Posted on Friday, November 13th, 2020

Hi Squirts,

Sorry I can’t be with you at the moment but that’s life as they say. I am, however, still planning all your work and staying in touch with the adults leading you.

WILL be doing the Parent’s Evening Phone calls so there’s no escaping me.

WELL DONES:

Freya who sent in a photo of her homework – look below – and Winnie and Indi G who brought their homework into school for me to see.

Freya. Days of the week and months of the year.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Also, WELL DONE to Jake who has had an absolutely amazing positive attitude towards school this week.

I was also proud of the whole class with the respect they showed on Wednesday during the build up to and through the 2 min silence at 11 am. WELL DONE EVERYONE.

I hope Mrs. Copsey or Mrs. Pateman gave login details to those who had asked for them. If anyone else has lost theirs you can ask the adults in the classroom or email me.

Don’t forget to do your homework from the Homework Grid, practice the spellings from last week (They’re in Monday’s Blog) and keep READING.

Have a great weekend.

Mr H.

Hi My Squirts,

I hope you all had a good weekend.

WELL DONE to Harper and Mylah for sending me your homework.

Queen Harper’s Rules

 

They are a bit small to see.

I’m afraid there will be no rule saying “No more homework” as much as the whole class would support you.

Michael Rosen’s poem “Chocolate Cake” has obviously had a profound affect on you – but for every meal?

 

 

Mylah’s Monster

 

 

 

 

It’s a bit scarier than those in “Where The Wild Things Are” Mylah.

 

 

 

 

There is a big change in how we communicate what we are doing at school from this week. The idea is to make everything as accessible as possible so if you have to isolate you can still keep up with what we are learning in class.

Hunstanton Friday Blog 6.11.20

Posted on Friday, November 6th, 2020

Hi My Squirts,

It was great to see you all again on Monday and hear all about what you had been up to during half term.

We had a terrific PE lesson Thursday afternoon but because I was teaching it I couldn’t take any photos and I had forgotten to give the camera to Mrs. Pateman. Perhaps you can remind me to do that next week.

Sadly, we will not be able to go swimming this week or next week due to staff shortages as a direct result of COVID. Hopefully, we’ll be back to normal by 20/11.

As we’ve been doing some tests this week we have not had set Phonics Lessons. These will begin again next week and so will spellings.

However, the new Homework Grid is up on the class page so you can choose and do two activities this weekend/week. Don’t forget to send me photos of what you have done so they can go up on the website next week.

I hope you have a great weekend.

Mr. H.

Hello Squirts,

I hope you all had a good half term and will be back today looking forward to a new half term. I’m looking forward to seeing you all again and hearing about your break from school.

Our learning this week will include:

English – Stories set in imaginary places.

Write a story that takes place in an imaginary world. Try to make it exciting by using good descriptions. That’s your Cold Task.

Read the text where-the-wild-things-are.

On apiece of paper Box up what is happening. (Write some notes to say what is happening in each paragraph.)

Use the pictures on Settings and Descriptions to write some sentences about the places you see. Then write some sentences about a setting of your own choice. Remember to us adjectives to describe the nouns and adverbs to describe the verbs.

“The small black cat scampered quickly away.” is so much more interesting than “The cat ran away.”

Remember to read using Bug Club.

Maths – We are carrying on with addition and subtraction.

Science – We are beginning to learn about electricity.

You will find activities for both Maths and Science on EdCity.

Topic – Think about all the different things you might do when you visit a fair. Focus on your 5 senses to help you remember. Can you find out what a London Frost Fair was and why we don’t have them today.

So, if you are stuck at home because of COVID you can still join in our learning!

Remember if you are having problems you can always email me.
