Week ending 15.9.17

Last week was another busy one, with lots going on in 6HH. Firstly, a huge congratulations to all the children in our class who made it onto the head boy/girl leadership team. The standard was extremely high this year, making it very difficult to split the children. Well done to all who have been chosen to represent our school and a special congratulations to Emma Stokes from our class who is the new Head Girl.

In lessons this week, the children have worked hard and are enjoying finding out about the Arctic. In English, we have looked in detail at the introduction and conclusion of a non-chronological report and the children have used different sources to research information on the Arctic. In science we have studied how animals are adapted to survive the extreme temperatures and in maths we have been rounding very large numbers and using negative numbers in context.

Alongside our Arctic work, we have begun reading our class text ‘The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe’ and our guided reading sessions for the next few weeks will be based on the story. In dance, the children have started working on a battle dance based on the book and we have completed some large pieces of artwork, depicting the main characters.

The homework choices for this term are attached as a link and a paper copy and homework book will be handed out tomorrow. Great work 6HH, please keep it up!

If you have any questions or queries about anything, please do not hesitate to come and find one of us.

Mrs Hirst

Hello, I am Jo Hirst, one of the longest serving teachers at the school.  I graduated from MMU with a BEd honours degree in Science and PE and last year went back to Uni at Edge Hill to complete a SEN (Special Educational Needs) Course. I am currently the SENCO at Offley which means I am responsible for supporting staff and pupils across the school with any educational, emotional and health needs.  I am thoroughly enjoying my role alongside teaching a year six class with my partner in crime Mrs Hankinson! In my spare time I enjoy aqua aerobics, cooking, travelling, walking and spending time with my family.

Mrs Hankinson

Hello everyone! After graduating with a degree in ICT and Education 14 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! Mrs Hirst and I work like Batman and Robin, as in previous years, you can decide who is which one. When I am not teaching, I am looking after my two wonderful children who are 4 and 1, 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.
