My name is Miss Burgess and I am very excited to be teaching Year 3 at Offley this year.
In 2018 I trained at Offley as a student teacher in Year 3. I completed my NQT year in a school in Manchester and I am delighted to be back to teach at Offley. I have mainly taught in KS2 and I am looking forward to welcoming the children into the juniors. I have recently moved to the area and have enjoyed discovering new places as well as going on lovely walks and bike rides. I enjoy playing lots of different sports, especially netball, so I am looking forward to helping lead P.E. at Offley.
3SB important information:
- P.E. kits are to be left in school until the end of term.
- For the time being our P.E. slot will now be Tuesday afternoons. We will be completing both of our P.E. sessions for the week on a Tuesday, so please make sure children have appropriate attire for indoor and outdoor sessions.
- Times tables will be tested on Thursdays.
- Spellings will be posted on Fridays on here and Teams to be tested the following Friday.
I can’t believe that it is Easter already, this year seems to be flying by. Our Star of the Week this week was Judy, for always trying their absolute best in their work and for their growing confidence in their work. Well done Judy, keep it up!
In English, we collected interesting facts about whales. For instance, did you know that a bowhead whale can live for over 200 years! We then used these facts to generate questions. We finished the English this week by writing a letter to a whale expert to try and find out the answer to our questions. Most children decided to write to Sir David Attenborough and we will be sending their letters to him after we return from the Easter holiday (as we have a couple of children who would like to finish writing their letters in best). The children should be very proud of the letters they have written, they are very high quality and I am sure will be greatly recieved. In Maths, we have explored the relationship between the 3 and 6 times table and used this information to help us to solve problems. Also this week, we have: created our van Gogh inspired illustrations using a choice of paint, oil pastel or chalk pastel; choreographed our own fitness routines in P.E.; and researched ammonite fossils before creating our own clay ammonites. It would be great to see the children recording their PE fitness routine for the PE Challenge 3 on Teams.
On Thursday, we had a lovely Spring filled fun day. We have sown the seeds for a wildflower arc on the turning circle as you enter the main school gates, which will be part of a wildflower meadow in remembrance of Patryk. We also enjoyed watching the pantomime Snow White.
Next term, we will be moving on to look at the Iron Age in Britain and how life changed for the people who lived here. We will also be starting our new topic on light, lets hope the good weather stays with us! We will then be moving onto our final topics of teh year!
I hope you all have a lovely Easter break and can rest and spend quality time together. In the files section below, you can find a couple of Easter activities from Grace Church Sandbach.
There are some reading activities available for download in the files section of this page and links to some maths challenges below. We will send home a set of activities if you do not have online access. We would also like you to use the links below at home if possible to be completed as part of the homework. The children's log-ins have been sent home in previous weeks to access these sites.
