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.

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

Good Morning My Super, Smart, Sparkly, Stupendous, Squirts,

This has been a marvellous week for learning.  From talking to your parents by phone or email I know many of you have  struggled with some of your learning, particularly Hot and Cold Tasks. However, I also know how hard you have worked to overcome the difficulties and complete the work.

“I can and I will,” said the Little Red Train as it puffed up the hill.

Absolutely brilliant, is how I would describe the efforts of those who tried so hard with something they found so difficult.

Those of you who haven’t sent me Hot and/or Cold Tasks yet from last week and this week, have a read of the ones I’ve included to remind you of how they are done and then send me yours.

Once again, a big WELL DONE to all the adults and other family members who have done so much work this week to support the learning of the children in Hunstanton Class.

Normally I choose only one photo from each child but Harper needed 3 photos to capture the whole of her Hot Task. Well done Harper it was an excellent piece of work.

Daniil’s spellings. Much better handwriting. Well done!

 

Dolcie’s Cold Task. A well written recount!

Mylah’s Hot Task. Very well written!

Discussion –

What might a creator of these things be like? How do you know? Many people think that the world is created by God, though not all. From the images, what might God be like?  

What questions would you like to ask the Creator, if you could?  

What answers might the Creator give?

Record the answer to your most important question.

Hello Super Squirts,

I hope you have all had a relaxing weekend and are ready for another week of learning.

In case any of you are interested, next weekend is the RSPB’s Great Garden Birdwatch and you don’t need a garden to take part. It’s on Friday, Saturday and Sunday and you choose a 1 hour time slot suitable to you. During that time you count the number and type of birds that you see and then send the information to the RSPB.

More details can be found at: https://www.rspb.org.uk
