5HH 2020 - 2021
Welcome to 5HH’s Class Page!
Week ending 1.4.2021
This week has been a brilliant one and the children have thoroughly enjoyed taking part in lots of different activities. On Monday we had our Viking jewellery day when the children researched, designed and made their own Viking pieces of jewellery. We had some brilliant necklaces, bracelets and brooches and it was lovely to see the children having so much fun.
In maths this week we have revise the formal methods and in our English lessons the children have up-levelled and presented their myths and have completed our reading work by analysing a short film entitled ‘The unknown Planet’.
Other activities the children have enjoyed this week included; an Easter themed hunt using their i pads, drumming with Mr Proctor, gardening, cricket and an easter Panto!
A huge well done to Bethwyn for being our drummer of the week and to Isla for being our Star of the Week.
Finally, we would like to wish you all a very happy and safe holiday and we look forward to welcoming the children back on Monday 19th April.

A little bit about us....
Hello everyone! After graduating with a degree in ICT and Education 16 years ago (start guessing my age), I completed a PGCE at MMU and have been teaching ever since. My favourite subject to teach is Art and I quite like maths too, which is funny because it was my worst subject when I was at school. I love my job, not just for those "lightbulb moments" but for the fun and laughs we get to have every day! When I am not teaching, I am looking after my two wonderful children who are 6 and 3, they certainly keep me on my toes! I love to go walking with our black lab, Oscar, travel and having fun with my family. I have thought of three interesting things to tell you about me which you might not know: 1. I have jumped out of an aeroplane! 2. I have heli-hiked on top of a glacier in New Zealand. 3. I am really interested in extreme weather.
Hello, my name is Mrs Hirst and I am one of the longest serving teachers here at Offley. I enjoy teaching the older children in school and I am currently the SEND co-ordinator; supporting staff and pupils across the school which I love. In the classroom my favourite subjects to teach are: maths, science and PE and in the summer I enjoy running athletic, cricket and rounders clubs.
In my spare time I enjoy swimming, walking cycling and visiting new places. During lockdown, I kept active by completing Joe Wicks every morning with my two children – Lauren and Keiran. We also went on lots of bike rides and walks and over the summer I spent a great week in Norfolk with my family. I am really looking forward to welcoming all the children back into school after the long lockdown and to find out what you have all been up to!
