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.

 

 

Important Information

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 now using an app called Reading Eggs - where children can read and take quizzes. This replaces Accelerated Reader.

Times tables tests - These will take place every Thursday morning

Homework - This will be given out on the 17th September

Spellings - the test for the pupils is every Friday. The spellings are shared via Showbie on the iPads and a paper copy is given to those students who do not take their ipads home. They are also uploaded on the webpage should they misplace them.

 

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.

The Big Plastic Count

Next week starting from Monday, thousands of people across the UK are taking part in the biggest ever investigation into household plastic. Please use the counting sheet given to your child to record your plastic waste and click on the link below to enter your scores at the end of week Sunday 22nd May. A copy of the data collection sheet can be found in the Files to download section at the end of this page. We are hoping to involve as many families as possible, let's get counting!!

Week ending 24.06.22

Well that’s another week that’s absolutely flown by! 
 
On Monday, the children started their ‘Theme Park maths project’ and they have been absolute superstars in their teams! At the start of the week, they had to look at building their own theme park and work out the costs of having certain rides, attarctions and amentities. After that, they designed some detailed brochures advertising their theme parks and then looked at how much their maintenance costs would be during their first two weeks of opening. We have really had to think carefully about using our budget wisely and used lots of maths skills a long the way! 
 
In English, the children planned and started to write their final piece of writing and this time, it is a split narrative based on our class text: Sky Chasers. The children have been given the tricky task of writing from not one - but two perspectives! They are trying really hard to include our feature and mastery keys and we are really looking forward to reading the finished pieces next week! 
 
In other areas of the curriculum, the children have been screenprinting and researching batik in Art. They have also started their new topic of Fairgrounds and as a class, we came up with our key questions that we need to find out before we make our very own working fairground ride! They have also started researching the history of fairground rides and how they work.
 
As well as all of this, we have been rehearsing our songs for our awards evening, developing our hockey and athletics skills in PE and working on our BIG art project!! 
 
Enjoy your weekend year 6 :-)
 
Mr Lamb & Mrs Furlong
