Year 2 2022 - 2023
Our usual day for P.E. is Tuesday. The children will need to come to school wearing their full P.E kit on this day. If you have not bought the new style P.E kit, you will be expected to wear a plain white t-shirt with black shorts. Please ensure that hair is tied back and that earrings are removed.
Pencil cases will not be required, as school will provide all of the equipment needed.
Spellings will be uploaded onto this webpage and on Showbie on a Friday, starting and will be tested the following Friday.
Homework will also be uploaded onto this webpage and Showbie. Paper copies can be given on request. Please upload to Showbie or bring a copy into school.
We will update this webpage every week with lots of information about what we have been learning in class and any other information that you will need.
Meet the Year 2 teachers ...
I have been at Offley for 23 years now. My subject responsilbility at Offley is MFL, with French being our school language.
I live on the Wirral with my husband and three children . Olivia is at University studying nursing, Isobel is studying for her A Levels and Matthew has just started year 10. I love animals and we have a sprocker spaniel called Milo, who we love taking for walks at the beach.
I have been at Offley for 19 years and I am KS1 phase leader at the school. This year I will be teaching in 2HF as part of a job share with Mrs Harrop. I will be in school Tues-Fri. My subject responsilbility at Offley is English and work closely with Mrs Casey in this role. It is a particularly exciting time as we are implementing a new phonics scheme this year. I love reading new books and look forward to sharing some with the children this year.
I live in Sandbach with my husband and three children . Two attend the local high schools and I have a little girl starting in Year 1 at Offley. Please do say hello if you see me dashing around the town with them!
I have also been an Offley for 19 years and was full time before my two little girls. I now job share with Mrs Forrester and work on Monday and Tuesday as class teacher. My subject area is History. Also, this year I am being a TA within school on a Wednesday, Thursday and Friday morning so the children will see me around all week.
I have two little girls who are in Year 1 and Year 4 at another school. We live in Scholar Green and we are known for our chickens! We seem to collect rescue chickens and find ourselves with seventeen currently. We have built our own house and it is an ongoing project that never ends!
Summer Term 1
In English we wrote letters to Mrs Hewitt asking for our some improvements to be made to our playground so that it can be transformed into a new fun space.
In Maths we have continued learning to tell the time using analogue clock faces. We have revisited our work from last week; reading o'clock, half past, quarter to and quarter past times. This week we had a real focus on telling the time to the nearest 5 minutes past and to. We’ve been dropping telling the time into various parts of the day. We’ve seen some children have started wearing watches this week or have been making their own. This is great!
In Art, we looked back a the modroc statues that we made last week. They had now gone hard and were stuck in shape. We evaluated them and compared them to the statue when it was just tin-foil.
In PE we enjoyed developing our cricket skills a little more and followed the session by another calming yoga journey.
In Science we recapped prior learning and named the different parts of trees and plants using words such as leaf, branch, trunk, stem, roots, petals and flower. We then investigated which plants we could see growing in our school environment, we noted down the type of environment they were growing in and sketched them remembering to label their parts.
In Geography we looked at ariel photographs of different coastlines and identified the physical and human features found on a beach from those.
In PHSE we talked about the importance of having a break from screen-time and having green time.
We finished the week watching a film ‘Fantastic Mr Fox’. This was a treat after a hard half term and also consolidated our recent work in guided reading.
Wishing you a lovely sunny week to rest and recuperate. We look forward to seeing you back in school on Monday 5th June when we will be getting excited about our beach trip!
