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.

Week ending: 27.03.20
It’s the end of a very unusual week of working from home and I have to say I am so impressed with the amount of work that everyone has been doing – well done to children and parents!
Keep logging in next week as there will be more work added; however, as I have mentioned on one of the discussions, this work is optional. We are going through a very unusual time at the moment and what matters the most is that everyone is happy. For some, that might mean continuing with school work and having some sort of normality to the day; for others, that might mean getting outside and getting dirty, watching a film or playing games. Whichever you choose to do, we will fill in the gaps when we do go back to school so please do what makes you happy!
The discussions are there to keep in touch so use these as and when you feel you need to. I have loved communicating with you all over this last week and seeing pictures of you and your work. It has definitely helped me to get through this week!
Stay at home and stay safe.
