Mrs Whipp


Welcome to 4LW 

Welcome to our class page. Here you can access our weekly update, class spellings and homework. Our P.E. day is now Tuesday and the children will be outdoors - weather dependent, so please ensure that they have appropriate kit. Please ensure that the children have appropriate P.E. Kit in school as we will also do P.E. on a Friday

My name is Mrs Whipp. I have been at Offley for five years now, having initially started as a maternity leave cover for Mrs McLoughlin. Before joining Offley, I taught at a variety of schools across both Cheshire and Manchester. My subject responsibility at school is Computing, which I love. Outside of school, I live with my husband and enjoy walking, drawing, photography and reading. As I love learning new things, I am currently learning to quilt.

You can check if a book you are reading at home has an Accelerated Reader quiz in your ZPD range by following this link and searching for the book.

Weekly update

Another week has flown by in 4LW. I can’t quite believe we only have 1 half-term left!

In English, we have used our work linked to concrete and abstract nouns to help us decide a setting for our poems, e.g. The Forest of Imagination. Then, we used our analysis of the poem to help us plan each of our 5 verses. Once we had finished our plans, we wrote, checked and presented our work for display. At the end of the week, we explored a variety of poems and discussed similarities and differences as well as identifying which poems we enjoyed and why.

In Maths, we have continued our work linked to measures. This week, we have been focussing on volume, reading scales and converting between litres and millilitres. On Thursday, we enjoyed completing a variety of activities that linked our topic of Italy with Maths.

In our Topic work this week, we have compared Italy with the UK using information such as the populations, size and language spoken. In addition to this, we have: created and saved a drum beat for our music compositions, using Stagelight; introduced our religious enquiry question – Are there any similarities in the way different religions celebrate their beliefs?; created food chains in Science, using the correct scientific vocabulary to identify each part of the chain; and identified the different counties in England, applying our growing map reading skills.

Also this week, the children enjoyed completing team building tasks with their colour team and taking part in the Sports Day races. There were some great examples of sportsmanship, with people cheering on classmates, even though they were racing for a different colour team.

When we come back, in English the children will be creating their own imaginative poems, in Maths we will be moving on to look at measurements of length and the relationship between different units, in our Topic work we will be finding out about major landmarks in Italy, foods from the different regions and creating our own illustrated maps of Italy. In addition to this, we will be continuing with our musical compositions and trying to replicate a variety of landscape paintings using watercolours.

Have a great half-term.
