Welcome to 6NC's class page! 

Mrs Casey

Hi I'm Mrs Casey and I am currently teaching Year 6.  This is my sixth year working at Offley and my tenth year in teaching.  While I enjoy teaching all subjects, my passion lies in English.  I am the English Leader for the school and also the Upper Key Stage 2 Leader.

I have been married for three 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.

Week ending: 15.09.17

The children have really got in to their topic this week and we have been adding more ‘scenery’ to our classroom for our drama activities.

Our Head Boy and Head Girl teams were chosen this week and the children were all fantastic. The quality of letters, tasks and interviews have been very high and the decisions were very difficult for Mrs Robertson and Mrs McLoughlin to make. Well done to all the children who applied - who have become prefects - and a big congratulations to Ben, Emma and their teams.

In Literacy this week, we have been looking at an example of a non-chronological report and using Talk for Writing to learn the introduction and summary to help us learn the structure so that we can apply it to our own report. We have also been looking at the structure of the whole report and the literary features.

In Maths, we have been rounding numbers to the nearest 10 000, 100 000 and 1 000 000, solving problems involving these. We have then moved on to using negative numbers, adding and subtracting these using double sided counters.

In Science, we have been focusing on animals and their offspring. We had a discussion about how young get certain characteristics from their parents in both animals and humans. The children discussed how they were alike/dislike their parents. We then linked this to evolution, studying Darwin’s theory about the birds’ beaks in the Galapagos Islands.

In Geography, we have continued to study the Arctic, looking at the countries that fall within the Arctic Circle. We have started to create a fact file about the Arctic, looking at the climate, and geographical features.

The children have brought their homework sheet and book home this week. If needed, there is a copy of the sheet on this page. They also have spelling homework to be done in preparation for their test next week.

If you have any questions or concerns, or would just like to introduce yourself, you can catch me on the playground after school and my door is always open.
