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!
In Maths this week we have been learning about shapes but focused on 3D shapes. We have learnt their names and the properties that they have using the words edges, faces and vertices. We have had lots of fun exploring the properties of these 3D shapes by using practical methods such as building structures, games and making 3D shapes out of nets.
In English this week we have been looking at Non-Chronological Reports. We have looked at a report about Unicorns and learnt the start of it through Talk For Writing. Then we have boxed up the report by its features. Next week we will innovate the text through finding synonyms (similar words) to make it our own. On Friday, we learnt how to use a thesaurus to get ready for this.
As its been Science week we’ve covered quite a bit of Science this week. We’ve had lots of volunteers and really appreciate all of the volunteers for coming into give up their spare time.
On Monday we had a visit from Maurice from the RNLI and he talked to us about the lifesavers jobs and gave us hints on how we can stay safe near water. On Tuesday, we had a visit from Harbour Dental Practice. The ladies showed us how to brush our teeth properly and then showed us how much sugar were in certain foods. On Wednesday, Mr Darlington came in to make rockets with us, with our plastic bottles. On Thursday, we took part in a recycling workshop.
We had a go at creating our own chain reactions which is our whole school theme, having watched a few videos online including this one.... (just to get ideas!)
Here are some of our designs!
Spring term - General information
Our topic in the Spring term is China.
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.
Science Week: It has come to that time of year again when we are looking for volunteers to come into school for Science week w/b 11thMarch. During Science week all children throughout school carry out experiments, have workshops and talks that link to areas of the curriculum. We are looking for any volunteers who would like to come into school and carry out a short activity with the children which relates to science/engineering. If you think that you can help, then please let us know. Thank you for your continuous support.
