6NC 2018 - 2019
Welcome to 6NC's class page!
Hi I'm Mrs Casey and I am currently teaching Year 6. This is my seventh year working at Offley and my eleventh 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. This year, I am also taking on the role of Mental Health and Wellbeing Leader, looking at how we can make children and staff aware of their own mental health and strategies to improve it.
I have been married for four 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. My personal target this year is to complete a half marathon - wish me luck!
This term, our big question is 'How does life adapt to different biomes?'. The children will be exploring the various biomes through their Geography lessons and learning about the key features of each. Through Science, they will study how animals have evolved and adapted to their environments, also looking at animals that have become extinct and why. They will also study the architecture of different landmarks around the world through Art and Design. At the end of the topic, the children will create their own documentary about living in different biomes. Our text this half term is 'A Story Like the Wind' by Gill Lewis, which explores the issue of asylum seeking.
- PE is taught on a Monday afternoon; however, the children will need to keep their PE kit in school as occasionally the timetable can change.
- The children can bring themselves in to school from 8:50am. They should enter via the external classroom door.
- Every other Thursday, the children will be taught by Mrs Furlong.
- On a Friday, the children will be taught by Mrs Edwards and Mrs McLoughlin.
Week ending: 12.07.19
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 Warrior 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.
