6NC 2017 - 2018
Welcome to 6NC's class page!
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: 16.03.18
It has been a fun-filled week in Year 6 with all of the workshops we have taken part in during Science Week. The children have looked at how to communicate with different audiences when a new drug is released, they have experienced the Star Dome, learnt about the fire triangle, discovered how to make cheese and learnt about blood. The children have learnt so much and asked lots of thought provoking questions. We would like to thank all of the volunteers who came in to work with us.
In English, we have been writing our stories linked to ‘Journey’. The children have produced some fantastic pieces of writing and are really applying the skills they have learnt throughout the year. Once we had edited our stories, we completed a ‘cold write’ for our new genre which will be a letter of complaint.
In Maths, we have been studying algebra this week. We have looked at patterns and how we can describe them using an algebraic equation. We have also practiced evaluating algebraic expressions and used this solve word problems. Finally, we looked at how we could show algebraic expressions on a linear graph. See photo below. The children have been asked to complete pages 40-43 of the SATs revision guide this week.
In Science, we have been taking part in a whole school competition. The children’s task was to see how many eggs they could safely land when dropping them from a 2m height. They were given materials to create some sort of ‘vehicle’ to transport the eggs. The children worked in groups to design their ‘vehicle’ and then made a prototype which they presented to the rest of the class. We then took a vote and the winning team – ‘The Mars Bars’ – were then able to make their ‘vehicle’ and test it.
Due to science week, we have been unable to do our Grammar session this week so the homework is linked to the children’s spelling patterns – pages 78-79.
