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 Maddox 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 16th September, which will have 12 tasks for them to select 9 to complete. 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 30.9.22

It was so lovely to finish another action packed week with all the children in their super hero outfits. A bright and exciting end to a fun week.

We have continued with our learning about place value of numbers in this week. We have challenged the children to round 4 digit numbers to the nearest multiple of 1000, 100 or 10 using the rule of rounding down if the thousand, hundred or tens digit is 4 or less and up if it is 5 or more. As the children became adept at this we have introduced word problems for them to apply their knowledge to. We complete this unit next week and move onto addition and subtraction.

Our English this week has had a focus on adding adverbials to our sentences to add more detail and interest. We began by learning what an adverbial is and how we can use them in different places in a sentence for effect. we mainly focused on fronted adverbials, which come at the start of a sentence. Using our text we have worked on creating sentences about each picture the children have so far seen in the text, and adding fronted adverbials to them. We continue to reinforce the importance of capital letters and full stops too. Next week we will reveal more of the story much to the children's excitement.

Thankfully the weather was kind to us on Monday so we were able to continue working on our basketball skills in PE and the children showed great control in moving, dodging and bouncing around the courts.

In our other foundations subjects we continued to learn about the internet, WWW and how information is stored in Computing,  In music we studied welsh songs. Science was a great fun filled lesson as we investigated branching classification keys, looking at asking questions to distinguish characteristics of a set of animals, the children loved drawing their diagrams on the tables! 2277725F-FD48-4339-AFD7-4A33EF0089A2.jpeg891FA81D-C03B-4CBA-BEC5-0A35B275C57A.jpeg

Our developing sketching skills were highlighted in a still life sketching lesson and the reults were amazing. History saw us mapping the key places in Egypt and recognising the importance of the Nile to this desert country.

Have a lovely weekend!

Miss Warren & Mrs. Somers
