Welcome to our class page. Here you can access our weekly update, class spellings and homework. Our P.E. days are Tuesday and Wednesday the children will be outdoors on a Wednesday weather dependent, so please ensure that they have appropriate kit.
My name is Mrs Whipp. I have been at Offley for six years now, having initially started as a maternity leave cover for Mrs McLoughlin. Before joining Offley, I taught at a variety of schools across both Cheshire and Manchester. My subject responsibility at school is Computing, which I love. Outside of school, I live with my husband and two cats. I enjoy walking, drawing, photography and reading. As I love learning new things, I am currently learning to quilt.
You can check if a book you are reading at home has an Accelerated Reader quiz in your ZPD range by following this link and searching for the book.
We have been developing our typing skills using BBC DanceMat typing, you can keep practicing at home by following this link.
It has been another busy week in 4LW. In our Maths, we have been exploring place value. We started by recapping how to count in 100s and in 25s. After this, we spent time exploring the relationship between thousands, hundreds, tens and ones. We used this to help us solve problems including completing number sequences and identifying mistakes in calculations. At the end of the week, we were comparing and ordering numbers using place value to help us decide which of the numbers has the highest value.
In English, we have started our work on Gorilla by Anthony Browne. We started by looking at the image (shown below) and making inferences about Hannah based on what we could see in the image. We then used the same image to help us generate questions that we would like to ask Hannah, which we used to hot seat as the character.
At the end of the week, we explored our initial impressions of gorillas and decided if we thought the author shared our opinions. Additionally, we read the first few pages of the story and decided what we liked and disliked about the story so far along with any patterns that we had noticed and any questions we still want answered.
In Computing, we have identified the purpose of different sections of code in Scratch. We have also explored what happens when we run given codes. In our Topic work, we have been investigating Egyptian artefacts. The children looked closely at images of artefacts and decided what they thought the artefact was used for as well as who they thought might have used it. This week, we have enjoyed starting our new sketchbooks creating a page for experimenting with different grades of sketching pencils.
Next week, we will continue to look at place value in Maths. In English we will be learning how to use small details to imply mood and describe characters. As well as using prepositional phrases to expand noun phrases. In our other subjects we will be continuing our Egyptian dance work in P.E. in addition to going on a bug hunt around our school site as part of our Science work.
