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.

It has been a fantastic week and the children are settling quickly into the new routines in Year 4.
In English this week, we have been reading some of our text: Gorilla by Anthony Browne. We discussed how gorillas are portrayed in poetry and stories, and we made predictions about Anthony Browne’s view of gorillas. We then used drama to explore the characters in the text and how they might be feeling. At the end of the week, we carried out our own research on gorillas and practised taking notes.
In Maths, we continued our place value work and we practised adding and subtracting multiples of 100 crossing the thousands boundary. We looked at different methods that would help us with this, using the number facts we already know. See below:
In Science, we have been learning about how to classify living things. We created fact files about our favourite living things including information such as where it lives, what it eats etc.
We have continued to learn about the Egyptians this week and we located important places on a map of Ancient Egypt. In art, we started to use watercolours to paint the Egyptian pyramids. In PE, we continued to represent the Egyptians through movement, and we started our own class dance.
This week, homework sheets and spellings have been given out. These are also on Showbie. We would like the children to use Showbie to share their homework with us or they can bring it in to school if they would prefer. If any paper or resources are needed, please just ask.
We hope you have a lovely weekend.
