2HJ 2020 - 2021
Welcome to 2HJ’s Class Page
Your daily work in set on Microsoft Teams that you all have log in details for. You will need to log on and there are powerpoints to watch/complete questions but also worksheets. The Powerpoints will have the information you need to help you complete the worksheets/activities and are the same as the input in our usual class lessons. If you can't have access to these, then you can still complete the worksheets, or just record your work on a normal piece of paper. You can then upload work for us to see and attach it to hand in so that we can see what you are up to! We will send feedback to you personally.

You will have noticed your child has some new log in details stuck into the front of their planners. This is because homework will be kept to online activities due to COVID restrictions.
Office 365 log in (TEAMS) You will find a username to Microsoft teams where assignments can be set and handed in. The username looks like an email address and also has a password. We will use the Year 2 group.
Reading Eggs – All children have now completed a pacement test to make sure they’re working on the right level. If your child does not change their reading book at school, please read using this. (This will help us too, as due to quarantining books it will take some pressure off our stock of books.) We can view what's been read but you can still record any reading done on reading eggs in your planner if you wish to.
We will also use reading eggs to set particular home learning activities.
Numbots – This is a new maths robot game that focuses on number, addition and subtraction. All children start from the beginning and it will gradually get harder.
Prodigy – This is another maths game that the children will be familiar with from Year 1. Their details have transferred over and we can set maths activities and assignments though this website.
We will send home a set of activities if you do not have online access.
Spring Term 2 - 2021
We start this term half term off with some uncertainty. We will begin the first two weeks continuing our home learning. You have all did a tremendous job last half term and made us very proud. This half term we begin a new topic with a history focus: we will be learning all about toys from the past. (This could take some of your parents and grandparents on a trip down memory lane.)
Our main text in English is a book called Major Glad, Major Dizzy written by Jan Oke.
Major Glad, Major Dizzy is a story about two toy soldiers hidden beneath the floor of a London house in 1870. As years go by, unknown to Major Glad and Major Dizzy, all kinds of changes happen above their heads until, when they are finally rescued 140 years later, the world they knew is almost unrecognisable.
In Reading our whole class text is a fiction story called Owen and the Soldier.
In phonics we will continue our work on Phase 6 with a focus on adding suffixes onto the end of root words.
In Maths we will continue to work on our multipication and division skills.
In Science we will start to think about different kinds of materials and how they are used. We will link this knowledge and think abou why toys from the past and today were made from certain kinds of materials.
In D/T we will be combining materials to create our own toys.
Well being will also continue to be a huge focus and our PSCHE focus is 'What helps us to stay safe'.
Please refer to the curriculum map in the files section for more information. This can also be found on TEAMS.
Stay safe and we hope to see you soon,
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 17 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 and our 2 little girls. One of my daughters is just starting Year 2 like you and the other has another year left at pre-school. We have a Lhasa Apso dog called Harley who is always up to mischief and taking himself on little adventures and is quite well known where I live, and 6 chickens. 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 and hide and find painted stones, especially love visiting the seaside for days out and spending time with our family and friends...when we can. I love most food and drink but particularly love any kind of fruit, a bowl of ice cream, garlic, halloumi and a cup of real coffee!
I have been teaching now for 11 years. I have been at Offley for 5 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.
We are lucky to have Mrs Carlidge and Mrs Green supporting in our room at different times during the week as well as Mrs Clarkson who will cover our PPA sessions and teach Music and P.E.
Mrs Harrop and Mrs Jones
