Year 4 2022/2023
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 :-)
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.
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 19.5.23
Well we have had another fantastic week in year 4!
In Maths, we have been rediscovering and extending our knowledge of fractions by recognising unit and non unit fractions. We then learnt to add and subtract fractions with the same denominator and today we have learnt about recognising equivalent fractions. next week we move onto mixed numbers and improper fractions.
In English, we have focused on report writing, producing great, informative reports on Sloths. we then discovered the role of an information board at Chester Zoo and have begun to plan and prepare our own based on the rainforest, which will create our final write for this book. The children have prepared 4 informative paragraphs and planned an exciting layout for their board. These will be created next week.
In History we have studied Boudicca and considered why she was a fantastically great woman who made history. The children then created impressive presentations about her. They demonstrated their computer skills by using keynote to create their presentations
In D.T, the children were so excited to actually begin to make their catapaults. Their sawing skills were impressive. Each group of 3 now has a base completed and will move on now to making and attaching their supporting arch and finally the firing arm.
