I have all Teams and TT Rockstars passwords ready.

Week 1 January  2021

Happy New Year to all and welcome back.

This year we will have a new set of units to cover in all subjects, plus some exciting music lessons with a set a Brazilian Samba drums

Our PBL  questions will be, "Have I got the skills to be a Viking leader?".

The new whole class reading text will have an interesting ending and I hope the children enjoy it as much as they enjoyed Hansel and Gretal.

In maths this week we are looking at multiplying and dividing by 10,100 and 1000.  We will also be looking at how we can use known number facts to solve problems.

Just a reminder that the children need their PE kit permanently in school.  It will be worth adding an extra fleece and jogging bottoms if we need to go outdoors. If any of the children have earrings, then they need to be able to remove them and replace them themselves if needed.

We are actively encouraging social distancing where we can, and the children are washing their hands regularly.


About me:

My name is Mr Ellis and I have just started with Offley this year.  I began my teaching career in 2001 in Warrington after completing a P.G.C.E in East London.  I have primarily taught in key stage 2 with 10 years in year 6.   

I am most happy when outdoors, whether that is walking, running, or biking.  I am slightly addicted  to the stats on my Garmin watch and become a little bit obsessed with beating previous records. 

Each year I try to set myself a physical challenge.  To date, I have completed the National 3 Peaks Challenge, ran and walked the Sandstone trail Ultra and competed in a few mountain marathons.  My favourite was Man v Mountain in Snowdonia.  This is where I spend most of my time.

Over the last few years, I have enjoyed gardening and get excited by the bumper crop of vegetables that I am able to pull out at the end of the season.

I am very much a believer that if you enjoy coming to school and feel happy and safe, you will want to learn.  I will get to know the children  in my class very quickly and work out what they all need to succeed …Of course, having fun in the process.
