2NF 2018 - 2019
Welcome to 2NF's class page!
Hello. My name is Mrs Forrester and I am one of the Year 2 teachers at Offley. I started working at Offley in 2005. I've taught throughout the school but I have a passion for teaching infants so I am delighted to be teaching Year 2. I am also Key Stage 1 phase leader at the school and and now English Leader for KS1 too. I have three young children of my own, two of which also attend Offley. This means you will often see me taking them to various activities around Sandbach. Please do say hello if you see me!
This week in English we edited our recounts about our trip to Crosby Beach.
We spent the rest of the week revising some of our learning in Year 2 with a big focus on SPAG. We have looked at the difference between questions, statements and commands. Then we moved onto revising what we know about nouns. We have remembered that there are two different types of nouns; common and proper.
These are the names of things (places or objects).
These are the names of a particular person, place or thing. They always begin with a capital letter.

This week we enjoyed having reading sessions inside the teepees on the school field.
In Maths this week, have revised what we know about subtraction. We have focused our revision on subtracting two 2-digit numbers from each other.
Please keep playing times table rockstars. It's a great way to learn your times tables. Click this link to login! https://play.ttrockstars.com/auth/school/student/18569 Come on - we need to win the battle this week!
In Science, we learnt about how humans need good hygiene to stay healthy and how some medicines can make us feel better. We focused on the need to wash our hands particularly well and enjoyed giving each other glitter handshakes to show how easily germs spread. We talked about when we need to wash our hands and how to do it.
We had so much fun creating our own Anthony Gormley inspired sculptures. We used tin foil to replicate the cast iron statues and moulded into the shape of a body. We then attached them onto either blue or yellow card to replicate the seaside. All of the statues together look absolutely stunning!
We have now finished our PowerPoints and they are fantastic. We cannot wait to show them off next week. This week we learnt how to animate our PowerPoints but making some bits on them move!
On Thursday this week we enjoyed eating Pizza for lunch. A huge thankyou to the PTA for buying them for us!
Have a lovely weekend. Just one more week to go in Year 2.
SUMMER term - General information
Our topic in the Spring term is... BEACHCOMBERS
Our main text is 'Jack and the FlumFlum tree’ by Julia Donaldson.
This is a story is all about a little boy called Jack who goes on an adventure.
Jack's Granny is sick with a bad case of the moozles! The only cure is the fruit of the fantastic flumflum tree which grows on the faraway Isle of Blowyernose. It's a perilous journey, but Jack bravely sets sail, with a motley crew of only three - and a large patchwork sack that Granny has filled with an odd assortment of items from chewing-gum to tent pegs. But what use will they be against hungry sharks, a leaky boat and a thieving monkey?
P.E. will continue to be on a Tuesday with Mrs Forrester and on a Friday with Mrs Clarkson. Please make sure that long hair is tied back and any earrings removed on these days if possible.
Every Friday is ‘Free Friday’ in Guided Reading. To encourage reading for pleasure you may bring a book in from home of your choice. You can then share this book with your friends, talk about it or recommend it to others.
Children will complete SAT's booklets during the month of May. These will be used to support our teacher assessments. The booklets consist of two reading papers, a maths arithmetic paper and a maths reasoning paper. Your child will complete these booklets in small groups as part of the classwork (and probably wont even realise that they are doing anything different!)
