Year 1 and 2 Spring 1 Overview

 

 

 

 

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 Parents of my Hunstanton Squirts,

As part of our topic about Toys we had an amazing picnic on Thursday lunchtime despite the weather.

We experienced a before, during and after encounter with it.

Before and during:

Picnic 1

Picnic 3

picnic 2

Then, five minutes after we got back to the classroom there was an amazing storm which ended with snow.

Outside, opposite the classroom.

In the open doorway to the entrance of the classroom.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We were unable to play traditional Victorian games outside because of the weather but we will try to next week.

Best wishes,

Mr H.

Good Morning  Super, Smart, Studious, Soft-hearted, Sleek, Sparkly, Scary, Sensible (Really?), Sprightly, Saucy, Shrewd, Sociable,  Stupendous, Squirts,

I hope you have enjoyed your final week of the Spring Term and are looking forward to the Easter Holidays.

I have been sent some photos of your PE lesson with Mrs Woods which I have attached below. It looks like you are continuing to blow away the cobwebs from Lockdown. Some of your track suites are so bright and colourful, I at first thought you were wearing your pyjamas!

 

 

 

 

I hope you all enjoy the Easter Holiday and don’t eat so much chocolate it makes you sick.

I no longer have to shield after the end of this month so I will be back with you for the beginning of the Summer Term which I am really looking forward to.

Take care and stay safe,

Mr H.

Good Morning Super, Smart, Sparkly, Scary, Sensible (Really?), Sprightly,  Stupendous, Squirts,

I hope you all had a relaxing half term and are all geared up for a fresh start.

Spring 2 will bring some changes with  Remote Learning being phased in over the next couple of weeks. It’s all very exciting and as strange and adventurous as landing on Mars – and probably just as frightening. However, we are all in this adventure together; it doesn’t matter if we make mistakes, that’s one of the ways we learn.

So, things are going to be a bit different; don’t worry Mr H hasn’t quite lost his marbles – yet.

Over the first two to three days I will be learning more about the technology needed to teach you at home via Teams. Later in the week we will begin to explore Teams together learning how to use it in a practical way as well as in a socially acceptable way. The aim is that by next week we will be doing English and Maths together each day. Fingers crossed.

You should all have received an email giving some details about joining teams,  just before or during half term, and those of you who will be using school computers should have been asked to pick them up.

The Learning Blog is there to work along side Remote Learning whilst we get it sorted out.

Learning Blog for Week Beginning Monday 22nd February 2021

When you send work please add any comments you may have about how your child/ren managed the activities. Your comments are helpful regarding what activities to use in future planning. Thank you!
