Miss Warren

Hello, my name is Miss Warren and this is my fourth year teaching at Offley and I am really excited to be moving back to year 4 :-) After graduating with a degree in Education Studies, I completed the first half of my teacher training here at Offley and could not wait to become part of the team at this amazing school. In my spare time, I love travelling and ticking destinations off my bucket list, my next one (hopefully) being New York! I also enjoy spending time with my friends, family and my very mischievous dog Tyson (who is always causing havoc in my house). I am also the D&T lead here at Offley :-) 

  Mrs Somers

Hello, I am Mrs Somers and this is also my fourth year at Offley.  I am looking forward to working with our new team and obviously a new class. I have taught for too many years to remember in a wide variety of schools and year groups prior to joining the amazing Offley team. In my spare time I enjoy walking my two gorgeous wirehaired viszlas in the beautiful countryside. I also enjoy reading and going to the theatre or cinema. Strictly Come Dancing is a passion! 

Working alongside us will be the lovely Mrs Green and Mrs Cartlidge. Also Mrs McLoughlin and Mrs Clarkson will be our cover teachers.

Important Information

Each week we will update this page with information about what has been happening in the classroom.

Indoor and outdoor PE- This will take place on a MONDAY afternoon. As a new initiative this year, the children will need to come to school wearing their full P.E kit on Mondays. This kit can consist of the new Offley P.E uniform or a plain white t-shirt, black shorts/joggers/leggings and trainers/pumps. The expectation is that the children with long hair will have it tied back and any earrings, fitbits or watches should be left at home that day. 

Times tables tests - These will take place every Thursday morning.

Spelling tests - These will usually take place every Friday morning. Spellings will be uploaded to this page and Showbie on a Friday for a test the following Friday.

Homework - Children will be given a homework grid on Friday 13th January, which will have 12 tasks for them to select 7 to complete by Friday 24th March. This will be uploaded onto here and Showbie.

Equipment - We will be providing the children with all of the equipment that they need so no personal pencil cases or note pads will be needed. Water bottles can be brought in, these will be kept in the classroom for the children to access. Please ensure that you label all of your children's clothing.

Week ending  20/1/23

We have had another great week! 

In English, we have continued to read our class text: Escape from Pompeii. The children are really enjoying the story so far and have made some excellent predictions about what they believe might happen next. This week, our focus has been to write from one of the main character's (Tranio) perspective. We used the information in the book to help us write a diary entry from his point of view, and the children had to try to include fronted adverbials, expanded noun phrases and a range of conjunctions. 

In Maths, we finished our work around multiplying and dividing by 10 and 100 and have now moved on to co-ordinates! So far, we know that there is an x axis and a y axis and we need to read the x axis first! The children have really enjoyed their first lesson on this and are looking forward to developing their knowledge and moving on to plotting co-ordinates on a grid as well as reading them. 

In Science, we had a fantastic afternoon learning about heating and cooling. We already knew that water is a great example of something that can change states. The children were already very familiar with ice cubes and steam and understanding that freezing water turns it into a solid, melting ice turns it back into a liquid and boiling water turns it into a gas! However, we needed to help a girl called Maya who wanted to make some rice crispie cakes for her party so we needed to heat the chocolate in order to melt it and then cool it again to create the solid cakes. We also did the same with jelly and watched it change from solid, to liquid, to solid again!

In Geography, the children were amazed to find out that the UK is home to quite a lot of volcanoes! However, they were pleased to discover that they are extinct and safe to go and visit :-)  After learning about some of the most famous volcanoes in the UK, the children then had a go at plotting them on their own map. 

In other areas of the curriculum, we have been busy developing our gymnastics and yoga skills in P.E, learning how to tell people our favourite school subjects in French, learning even MORE about volcanoes in Guided Reading and discussing the ownership of online content in Computing and learning about why we need to consider whether or not we have the right to reuse it. 

Have a lovely weekend!
