5JM 2018 - 2019
Welcome to 5JM's class page!
Hello, I'm Mrs Maddox and this year will be my fourth here at Offley. I thoroughly enjoy teaching in Year 5 and this year I will also be co-leading mathematics with Mrs Furlong.
I have lived in Cheshire for over three years now and love exploring new places within the local area. In my spare time I enjoy baking, reading, exercising, going for long walks and to music concerts and spending time with my friends and family.
PE days are Thursday (indoor) and Friday (outdoor)
Times table tests are on Thursday
Spelling tests are on Friday
Homework will be from the choices sheet, in addition to Maths and English when given out.
Week ending: 24.05.19
In English this week we identified the features of the extract we have learnt from 'The Secret Garden' by Frances Hodgson Burnett., including direct and indirect speech, possessive apostrophes to punctuate, complex sentences and lots of older English language. We then focused on the latter and the children wrote their own sentences using words such as, sea smoke, bracken, thicket, thereby, hence and Ma'am, which they really enjoyed.
In maths we explored capacity practically and began converting measures (cm to mm, mm to cm, m to cm and m to cm). We will continue with this after half term.
In scence we looked at the lifecycle of a bird and the children then created their own lifecycles for a new species of bird to live in the Peak District.
We all had a fantastic time on our welly walk through Bradwell last Friday!
This term in drumming with Mr Proctor we are learning how to play the West African 'Djembe' drum. Our drummer of the week was Sophie Wallis - well done!
