4CS 2021 - 2022
Hi, I’m Mrs Somers and I am delighted to become part of the Offley team. I am an experienced teacher, having taught in many different schools and across the whole range of primary age classes for far too many years to count! I have been married for over 30 years and have 3 grown up sons, who are all enjoying exciting lives in their chosen careers. My two wire-haired vizsla dogs are our new babies and we enjoy exploring the beautiful Cheshire countryside with them. I have just begun Pilates lessons but reading and trips to the cinema or theatre remain my main passions.
Hi, I'm Mrs Casey and I have worked at Offley for 9 years now. I have taught across most year groups from Year 1 to Year 6 and I am really looking forward to teaching Year 4 this year. I am married with two young children: Noah and Bella. I also have a cat called Lily and we have recently got a puppy called Gabriel who is causing all sorts of chaos in the house! When I was growing up, my hobby was dancing for over 20 years and I took part in lots of competitions and took part in shows at theatres across the country - I even performed in The Magic Kingdom in Florida. Nowadays, my hobby is running (when I'm not injured!) and I have completed three half marathons. I also enjoy days out with my family and going to the theatre with my friends.

Week ending 24.6.22
We have had another action packed week this week. We began the week preparing for our Pizza. We linked our work on Italy to our DT project for this term. We had a great time tasing different possible toppings for pizzas, such as olives, sweetcorn, pepperoni and peppers. Based on our choices we then designed our own pizzas with our favourite toppings. In small groups the children then followed a recipe and made their pizza base dough and created their individual quarters. After cooking them came the exciting tasting, all children were impressed with their pizzas! We completed the day by writing an evaluation of our pizzas and the process of making them.
English this week involved the children hot seating the Queen of Darkness and finding out her reasons for keeping Blue John in the cave. These ideas have then been used to create and improve sentences using conjunctions, similes and expanded noun phrases. We have also considered the features of writing an explanation text and used them to write one based around 'How to make a cloud.'
After our work on fractions and focus on times tables we have moved on in Maths to scaling up and down. Using cuisennaire rods to compare the lengths of different rods, we found rods that were 3x longer or 1/3 shorter. We then used this knowledge to solve some problems.
Relating back to our pizzas we looked at Nutrition in Science and sorted foods into their appropriate groups and considered the nutrients different foods can give us. We also completed many challenges to show our understanding of food chains.
In PE we introduced the children to some of the skills involved in badminton and identifying the similarities and differences with tennis. Our computing this week allowed the children to explore editing photographs using different colour filters as well as enhancing them using contrast, brightness and vignette.
Next week we have our transition days and will make a start on our big art project.
Have a great weekend.
