5NC 2020 - 2021
Welcome to 5NC's class page!
Hi I'm Mrs Casey and I am currently teaching Year 5. This is my eighth year working at Offley and my twelfth year in teaching. While I enjoy teaching all subjects, my passion lies in English. I am the English Leader for Key Stage 2 and also an Assistant Headteacher. Alongside this, I am also the Mental Health and Wellbeing Leader for the school.
I have been married for five years now and my little boy, Noah, was born in January 2016. Growing up, my hobby was dancing which I did for 22 years. I enjoyed taking part in a number of shows at Crewe Lyceum Theatre and I was even lucky enough to perform at the Magic Kingdom in Florida on two occasions. I enjoy trips to the theatre, reading, keeping fit and spending time with my friends and family.

Wow! What a school year it has been! Let’s hope we never have another one like it! I have been so proud of the children for the way they have dealt with everything, the resilience they have shown and their commitment to continue learning. They have proven themselves to be adaptable and self-motivated in the hardest of times and, even though we wish they had never had to go through this, it has equipped them well for their futures.
Over the last two weeks, we have been reflecting on Year 5 and also looking ahead to Year 6. It’s now time for a big well-deserved rest before we hit the ground running in September! If anyone is stuck for things to do, I have put some activities on the homework page, but there is no expectation for these to be done. Enjoy the summer and remember to appreciate the little things!
I look forward to seeing everyone in September.
Your new teacher wants to know all about you and this is your opportunity to tell them. You have been asked to create a journal page - a bit like we do in Maths and other subjects – but this one is all about you! You can present your journal page in any way you like, using writing and pictures, either on paper or the computer. Below is a list of things we would like you to definitely include. If you have space, you may want to include other details.
- A photograph of you
- What are my interests outside of school?
- Which subjects am I good at?
- Which subjects do I enjoy?
- What are my goals for next year?
- I wish my teacher knew … about me
- What would I like to be when I grow up?
- How do I feel about returning to school?
- My experiences during lockdown: What was lockdown life like?
What did I enjoy doing?
Who did I spend time with?
What did I miss?
New skills I have learnt
The completed journal pages can be emailed to your new teacher via the admin address, posted via Royal Mail or left in the school outdoor post box (purple box) situated outside the Office. Please put your new teacher’s name on the envelope or in the subject box if emailing.
Your new teacher would love to use this activity for a display for your new classroom so please make sure it is your best work and is presented beautifully.
