6LF 2021 - 2022
Welcome to 6LF’s Class Page!
Hi! Welcome to our class; we can't wait to work with you this year and welcome you back to school after a very strange time away.
On this page you'll find some information about your teachers and important information about your timetable as well as weekly updates, spellings and some homework.
Hi. I am Mr Lamb and I'm very excited to be teaching in Year 6 again this year. This will be my second year teaching at Offley. Previous to Offley, I have taught in Manchester, Slovakia, Kent, and in Japan over a total period of 12 years. I have primarily taught in Year 6, and have led a range of subjects, including science and maths, which I will now be leading alongside Mrs Furlong.
I have two young children, who attend school in Alsager, one who is in Year 3 and the other who is in Year 1n. I enjoy running, cycling, reading and spending time with my family.
I'm Mrs Furlong and I will be teaching you on Fridays. I can't wait to get to know you all properly. Mr Lamb, Miss Warren and I talk lots and communicate to make sure you get the best lessons every single day.
I have been working at Offley since 2014 - but have been a teacher for a long time. I am Maths Lead in the school along with Mr Lamb. But don't worry you won't be doing maths all day!
The rest of the week I am employed to work in a Teaching School as part of North West One Maths Hub - which in a nut-shell means I am in charge of delivery of high quality training to teachers about improving maths teaching.
When I am not working, I am either at home with my family (I have a husband, two daughters - who are both in Key Stage 2 - and two dogs - Toby and Lily) or you'll find me at the stable yard with my horse, Ruben, that I compete on in dressage.
Friday - Every Friday, Mrs Furlong will be teaching the class.
PE- This will take place on a Monday afternoon. The children will need indoor and outdoor kit.
PPA Cover - This year Mrs Maddox and Mrs Hurst will be covering Y6 on a Wednesday morning. They will be delivering music and RE
Support Staff- This year we are lucky to have Mrs Walkley supporting Year 6 every morning and Mrs Maddox on Tuesday mornings.
Reading - The school is in the process of updating its reading scheme this year so in the meantime please continue to encourage your children to read at home as much as possible.
Times tables tests - These will take place every Thursday morning
Homework - This will be given out on the 17th September
Each week I will update the website with information about what is currently being covered. I will also upload any homework or spellings given out that week. If you have any questions or queries feel free to see me at the end of the school day or contact me through the school office. Admin will then forward on any messages or arrange meetings at a mutually convenient time.
Autumn Term Information
This term, our topic will be linked to World War Two
Our text this half term is 'Star of Fear Star of Hope' by Jo Hoestlandt. It is a picture book told through the eyes of child during the persecution of Jewish people during World War Two
Week ending Friday 16th September.
Well, it's certainly been a strange week. But it's also been a very good week too. On the plus side, it's been great to get started in our classroom and get into the groove of Year 6 a little more, but on the down side, it's been a real shame that some of the children have unfortunately been missing from school due to COVID. We all can't wait to have everyone back together again as soon as possible.
In English this week, we have been continuing to read Star of Fear, Star of Hope. The children have discussed the themes with maturity and have written in character with care and understanding. They have questioned one of the key characters (thank you Zac!) and are ready to write a wonderful newspaper report. I'm looking forward to reading them all. In maths, the children have continued to consolidate their knowledge of place value and were able to apply their knowledge when ordering and comparing numbers.
In other areas of the curriculum, the children have started their World War Two topic. They played a game of Risk and found out that Europe would have been a very tense and scary place during the 1930s. It was a very involved and scary classroom to be in! In science, we have started our topic on the circulatory system and some wonderful labelled diagrams of the human heart have been drawn. Everyone enjoyed the 3-D computer animated heart!
A great week everyone. Well done.
Mr Lamb and Mrs Furlong
