6JM 2019 - 2020
Welcome to 6JM's class page!
Hello, I'm Mrs Maddox and I am teaching Year 6 this year and leading mathematics with Mrs Furlong. This will be my fifth year working at Offley.
In my spare time I enjoy baking, reading, clubbercising (which the children love in PE lessons), exploring new places in the local area, going to music concerts and spending time with my friends and family.
- PE will be taught on a Monday afternoon (both indoor and outdoor); however, the children will need their kits in school at all times as this could sometimes change.
- The children will be taught by Mrs Bennion and Mrs Edwards on a Tuesday afternoon.
- Times table tests are on a Thursday.
- Spelling tests are on a Friday and the children will receive new spellings at this time too.
- Maths homework will be due in on Mondays and SPAG homework is due on Thursdays.
- As part of 'Free Friday' the children are encouraged to bring in a book, magazine or comic of their choice to read; this doesn't have to be their Accelerated Reading book.
Spring Term Information
This term our big question is 'Can you hot foot it around North America and the world?'. We will be having a geographical and DT focus on North America and the wider world; exploring different biomes and terrains and eventually making a pair of shoes designed to withstand one of these.
Our class texts this half term are Island by Jason Chin and Jemmy Button by Jennifer Uman and Valerio Vidali, which we will be exploring in English lessons.

Week ending: 20.03.20
It’s been a very strange week for the world and Offley as we come to terms with these unprecedented events amidst the terrible outbreak of Covid-19. Unfortunately I have not been in school since Monday, but Mr Mason has been doing a fantastic job and I would like to say a big thank you to him.
As remote learning will be coming into place from Monday I would like to remind you of the many platforms available for you to access at home with your child:
Remote learning – daily maths and English lessons will be put on here for your child to work through in line with where we are currently at in the curriculum
SPaG and Maths homework revision books
Read Theory – reading and comprehension activities
TT Rockstars (if you cannot remember your login details leave a message on the remote learning platform for me and I can let you know)
Priodgy – maths activities will be set on here
Remember to also keep yourselves active (Joe Wicks is putting on a live workout on YouTube catered especially for children at 9am each day Monday –Friday https://www.thebodycoach.com/blog/pe-with-joe-1254.html) and make the most of your time at home by learning lots of new skills if you are able to, such as: cooking, baking, gardening, cleaning and sewing – the list is endless!
But most importantly look after yourselves, your family and loved ones. Keep in touch with grandparents and friends and try to remain as positive as you can – we will get through this!
