2HJ 2019 - 2020
Welcome to Year 2! 2019-20
Summer term - Second Half
Our remote learning journey will continue this half term and we have lots of exciting things planned for you to do. As before these will be uploaded daily and we will be checking regularly to see the work that you have done.
Our main text in English for the next few weeks is the Book Grandad's Secret Giant. We will focus on what morals this story tell and our work will lead to writing our own version of the story.
In Maths we will start off by revisiting our learning on multiplication and division before moving onto learning about Shapes and how to use positonal language. In Science we will focus on materials. In History we will compare the two significant individuals thar e;ve been learning about Grace Darling and Edward Smith and and compare them. In Georgraphy we will be learing about the features of the seaside.
If you are struggling to log on and access our daily PowerPoints, (or are simply feeling overwhelmed with it all) whilst school is closed remember you can still learn using these links.
Usernames and passwords are stuck in the front of your planners.
Remember that you have 2 teachers in 2HJ - Mrs Harrop for Monday and Tuesday and Mrs Jones for the rest of the week.
I have worked at Offley for about 15 years. I have mainly been in Year 1, Year 2 and Year 3, but have had the opportunity to teach in all year groups for a couple of terms too. I live in Scholar Green with my husband, 2 little girls and our Lhasa Apso dog called Harley who is always up to mischief and taking himself on little adventures! We designed and built our own house and it is an ongoing project that we are very excited about and enjoy doing. We love to go out for walks, especially love visiting the seaside for days out and spending time with our famiy and friends.
I have been teaching now for 10 years. I have been at Offley for 4 years. I have mainly taught years 1 and 2, but have also done Year 4. I live in Congleton with my husband and my two little boys (Jack and Tyler). We also have a dog called Barney so our house is a very busy household! In my spare time I take part in Amateur Dramatic shows down at the Daneside Theatre in Congleton. I also enjoy going skiing with my family and spending time with family and friends.
It has been very emotional and we are very sad to have to say 'bye bye for now' to our lovely little class. We will catch up soon and in the meantime we can keep in touch through our remote learning. We have given out lots of new passwords for different websites and they are stuck at the front of the planner (those who were in and had planners). The other children have them in their bag or had them posted. As much as possible, each day, you will need to log in to our website to access your English and Maths lessons. Most of the time, these will be done as PowerPoints (as they would be in class). Play them in presentation mode and have a pen and some paper handy to answer questions as you go along. The answers will be on the PowerPoint so that you can check how well you are doing - but no peeking or cheating!
There will be some other subject areas set and we there are lots of companies offering free subscriptions at the moment too so you can log in and have fun.
We will put our 'warm the brain' maths mental questions on as well. We are doing so well at rapid recall each morning, so keep up the hard work. Dont forget Times table Rockstars and your new Prodigy account for some fun maths activities if you can.
We had a quick play on reading eggs this week so the children can now access lots of reading books on there and get busy earning eggs.
This is all new to us as well - so let's try and enjoy this new adventure together as much as possible. We will be setting some discussions so that we can all 'get together' as a class sometimes. The children know how to message us directly so if there are questions, or you want to clarify things...we will get back to you as soon as we can and hopefully can help.
Take care and stay safe.
Mrs Harrop and Mrs Jones
