6JM 2019 - 2020
Welcome to 6JM's class page!
Hello, I'm Mrs Maddox and I am teaching Year 6 this year and leading mathematics with Mrs Furlong. This will be my fifth year working at Offley.
In my spare time I enjoy baking, reading, clubbercising (which the children love in PE lessons), exploring new places in the local area, going to music concerts and spending time with my friends and family.
- PE will be taught on a Monday afternoon (both indoor and outdoor); however, the children will need their kits in school at all times as this could sometimes change.
- The children will be taught by Mrs Bennion and Mrs Edwards on a Tuesday afternoon.
- Times table tests are on a Thursday.
- Spelling tests are on a Friday and the children will receive new spellings at this time too.
- Maths homework will be due in on Mondays and SPAG homework is due on Thursdays.
- As part of 'Free Friday' the children are encouraged to bring in a book, magazine or comic of their choice to read; this doesn't have to be their Accelerated Reading book.
Summer Term 2020
I hope you all had a lovely Easter, ate lots of chocolate and had some fun in the sun with your loved ones! I have been very impressed with how hard you are working and I am very proud of you in these challenging times. Learning will continue in the same way as it did before the Easter holidays: English and Maths lessons will be uploaded daily; Science will be uploaded weekly (our new topic is electricity) and other subjects will be uploaded as and when appropriate. Our topic will be linked to Crime and Punishment through the ages, but specifically focused on the Victorian era. Usually, this term would be all about preparing for SATs, so we will have time to delve deeper into the other subjects instead.
Our text this half term is 'Manfish' by Jennifer Berne. It is a non-fiction text about the life of Jacques Cousteau and will be the basis of all our English this term.
We will be revising algebra for a couple of weeks in maths, and lessons will contain a mix of the usual work you are accustomed to and online games and activities.
As I said before Easter, the lessons are there for you to complete if you feel able to. If you are having a bad day, you don't understand or you feel you need to focus on something else, then do what makes you happy.
It would be lovely to hear from you and find out how you are doing. Please make sure that as well as home learning you are also doing things that make you happy :)
