2NF 2021 - 2022
Welcome to 2NF’s Class Page!
Welcome to Year 2!
Hello. My name is Mrs Forrester and I am one of the Year 2 teachers at Offley.
I started working at Offley in 2004. I've taught throughout the school but I have a passion for teaching infants so I am delighted to be teaching Year 2 again. I am also Key Stage 1 phase leader, phonics lead English Leader for KS1 too. I have three young children of my own, one at high school, one which attends Offley and one starting school this September! This means you will often see me taking them to various activities around Sandbach. Please do say hello if you see me!
Hi everybody my name is Miss Griffiths and I’m really excited to be completing my PGCE as a schools direct trainee this year! I have recently graduated from Derby University and completed a degree in Education. In my spare time I love to read and walk my mischievous dogs. I’m looking forward to getting to know you all this year!
Mrs Bennion will teach our class on a Friday morning when Mrs Forrester has her PPA time. She will also be working as an additional teacher in Year 2 on Thursday mornings.
Here is what we’ve been up to in 2NF this week:
Here is what we’ve been up to in 2NF this week:
Week commencing 13th September 2021
We have carried on reading Troll Swap this week and compared Timothy Limpet to other trolls. We have found out that Timothy is NOT like all the other trolls. The other trolls are loud, messy and nasty. Whereas Timothy is polite, kind and tidy. We have been focussing on using adjectives lots in our writing this to describe trolls, and to give him instructions about how he should behave. We then met a new character called Tabita Lumpit in her story and thought of which adjectives might describe her.
We have started the text ‘The Troll’ by Julia Donaldson. We read the first few pages and were introduced the troll in this story. The troll doesn’t eat goats but eats fish instead! We also met a group of pirates who live out at sea. We used our inferencing skills to write a postcard about how the pirates were feeling at sea.
This week in maths we have been continuing our work on tens and ones. We have been really working hard to gain a solid understanding of what each digit represents in a two digit number. We have worked practically counting tens and ones. We have also been positioning numbers on a number line and discussing how we know that 65 is greater than 32. We have talked about breaking the number down into its tens and ones and also where the numbers fit on the number line to help us to explain our reasoning. We have also been comparing numbers and partitioning numbers.
We have been thinking about what makes a good friend this week. We thought about what a good friend might do or say.
This week we have started learning about portraits. We have learnt what a portrait is and also had a look at some interesting examples. We then created a scrapbook of examples of portraits.
Mrs Harrop took us for PE. On Monday afternoon and we worked on our co-ordination skills.
In PE this week we have been learning about Volleyball. We have worked in pairs to learn how to ‘strike’ the ball and also how to ‘volley’ the ball. Everyone had a lot of fun.
This week, we have been learning about different types of maps and the features we find on the maps. We have also learnt what a compass is, discussed who would need a compass and how they would use it. We learnt the compass points ‘NESW’. We then spent time outside following instructions/directions using our compass to lead the way.
In ICT this week we thought about how we could stay safe. We talked about how lucky we are to have IPads but there are some rules in place about taking photographs and who we can share them with. We learnt a song to help us remember what to do if there is something we don’t like: here is the link to a short video and the song is at the end.
