6BM 2018 - 2019
Welcome to 6BM's class page!
Hello! I'm Miss Moulton; I have been teaching at Offley for the last 12 months in Year 4 and will be starting in Year 6 from September. My hobbies include: dance, drama, singing and reading. This year I will also be taking on the role of joint PE co-ordinator with Mrs Rae. I am very excited for the new school year and can’t wait to see what it brings!
As you hopefully know by now, Miss Moulton has now started her maternity leave. I will be teaching the class for the rest of the year. Previous to Offley, I have taught in Manchester, Slovakia and in Kent. I have enjoyed leading maths and science, and have primarily taught in Year 6. I have two young children, and still try to keep up my hobbies of running, cycling, reading and whatever else I have the time to do. I have enjoyed getting to know the class and look forward to the rest of the year.
Summer Term Information
This term, our big question is 'Can I open 6BM's Magnificent, Miniature Fairground?'. The children will be researching how traditional fairground rides work, paying particular attention to the technology features. Through Science, they will study how to design, draw, make and adapt electrical circuits. At the end of the topic, they will be using their knowledge and skills to design and make their own working fairground rides. Our text this half term is 'Wild Boy ' by Rob Lloyd-Jones, which explores a boy's adventures in a Victorian Fairground setting.
Each week I will update the website with information about what is currently being covered. I will also upload any homework or spellings given out that week. If you have any questions or queries feel free to see me at the end of the school day or contact me through the school office. Admin will then forward on any messages or arrange meetings at a mutually convenient time.
PE- This will take place on a Monday afternoon, the children will need indoor and outdoor kit. This half term we will be focusing on skills in Dance and Athletics.
PPA Cover - This year Mrs Mclauglin will be covering me on a Friday morning. She will be delivering Music to the children during this term.
Support Staff- This year we are very lucky to have Mrs Badger and Mrs Cartlidge working within our class!
Accelerated Reader - The children have been retested, and all have their new ZPD's. They have asked if they can bring books in from home to read, so I have copied below the link for AR book finder. This means children will be able to check to see if books from home are within their reading range.
Free Friday- Every friday during guided reading the children will be invited to bring in a book, magazine or comic of their choice to read in school. The children will be recommending reads to each other as well as teacher led recommendations. This will hopefully inspire the children and help develop their love of reading.
Week ending: 012.07.19
One week to go. Preparations for our Leavers' Assembly have ramped up and the children are getting to know their lines and are adding just the right amount of humour and fun. By the end of next week, they will be raring to share their assembly with you all. Remember: bring your tissues.
Away from our end of year preparations, the children have been continuing to make their theme park adverts. They have started to make a TV advert and a poster, or billboard - and by the looks of the adverts so far, we definitely have some future Steven Spielbergs and Kathryn Bigelows.
Their theme park rides are also nearing completion, and there are some excellent working models of carousels, ferris wheels and even a roller coaster. The children have used their knowledge of circuits, motors and pulleys to produce some high quality rides. Let's hope they live up to the claims in their adverts.
Next week, we have our trip to Ninja Warriors on Monday, the Awards Ceremony on Tuesday evening and then the Leavers' Assembly on Friday afternoon. We hope to see you all there to celebrate the children's time at Offley.
Following our discussions with the children and the letter that parents will have received last week, please see the videos below and discuss how you can support your child to be safe online. If you havent already!
