4GB 2021 - 2022
Welcome to 4GB class page!
Hello, my name is Mrs Bloor and I teach one of the Year 4 classes. I have been teaching at Offley since 2008 and have taught in most year groups. I am married and have two boys who are at the other end of the education system! James has recently graduated from univeristy and Henry is about to start university! I love animals and have a tortoise called Terri who is in her 90's and a Cavapoo called Lulu who I love taking for long walks. During the first lockdown I became involved with a hedgehog rescue centre and help them out by fostering hedgehogs whilst they are rehabilitating. I currently have a hoglet called Nemo, he's about 5 weeks old. I am also passionate about sustainability and developing the school grounds to encourage more wildlife to visit, so if you have any ideas do let me know.

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 this term 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.
