5NC 2019 - 2020
Welcome to 5NC's class page!
Hi I'm Mrs Casey and I am currently teaching Year 5. This is my eighth year working at Offley and my twelfth year in teaching. While I enjoy teaching all subjects, my passion lies in English. I am the English Leader for Key Stage 2 and also an Assistant Headteacher. Alongside this, I am also the Mental Health and Wellbeing Leader for the school.
I have been married for five years now and my little boy, Noah, was born in January 2016. Growing up, my hobby was dancing which I did for 22 years. I enjoyed taking part in a number of shows at Crewe Lyceum Theatre and I was even lucky enough to perform at the Magic Kingdom in Florida on two occasions. I enjoy trips to the theatre, reading, keeping fit and spending time with my friends and family.
- PE is taught on a Wednesday and a Thursday; however, the children will need to keep their PE kit in school as occasionally the timetable can change.

- On a Wednesday morning, the children will be taught by Mrs Bennion for part of the morning.
- Drumming is on a Thursday.
- Times tables tests will take place on a Wednesday.
- Spelling tests will take place on a Friday and new spellings will be given out at the same time.
Week ending: 06.12.19
It’s December already! Where did that time go? It has been another busy week in 5NC. In English, we have written our own version of the story written by Jub but we have changed the ending to make the witch come to a different demise. The children have enjoyed planning and writing these stories and they have done well to include the different skills they have been learning.
In Maths, we have consolidated our understanding of the bus stop method and we have been using this with calculations that involve remainders. We looked at these in the context of word problems and discussed whether we needed to round the remainder up or down. We then looked at using the distributive law to help us to solve division calculations. For example, if we know 300÷3 = 100, we can use this to calculate 297÷3 by subtracting 3 from the previous calculation.
In Science, we were interpreting scientific data. We drew a graph to represent a set of data and looked for anomalies in our results.
In Computing, we have almost completed our web pages – they are looking fantastic!
Our rehearsals for the Christmas play have begun and the children are making good progress with this.
For the children’s spellings this week, they have taken words from their English books to create a personalised spelling list of 10 words. They will be tested on these next Friday.
Well done to Mason Pemberton who was Mr Proctor’s Drummer of the Week.
Well done also to Hollie O’Pray who is my Star of the Week for working well in her group in English and also supporting other children in Maths.
