2019 - 20
Hi, I’m Mrs Somers and I am delighted to become part of the Offley team. I am an experienced teacher, having taught in many different schools and across the whole range of primary age classes for far too many years to count! I have been married for over 30 years and have 3 grown up sons, who are all enjoying exciting lives in their chosen careers. My two wire-haired vizsla dogs are our new babies and we enjoy exploring the beautiful Cheshire countryside with them. I have just begun Pilates lessons but reading and trips to the cinema or theatre remain my main passions.
Our final term of Year 3 has arrived in a somewhat strange way.
Our Maths focus for the next 3 weeks is going to be learning about fractions of shape and number. We are really fortunate because the amazing Maths team at NCETM have created short videos explaining the different ideas.
In English, we are going to be using a book called The Journey. It's a really special book because it has no words but amazing illustrations that include so much detail on every page. Each time I look at a page I see more and more!
Over the course of this term, one of our mini topics is learning about the historic buildings and places within Sandbach. So when you go out for your daily exercise, look at the details on the buildings in the town centre and try to find the oldest house and when it was built. Science will focus on forces and magnets - always a popular one, playing with magnets :) We have lots more learning on the student login on the top right hand side of this page.
As always, do your best what you can and when you can.
Hope to see you all very, very soon
Mrs Somers and Mrs Badger
