2NF 2020 - 2021
Welcome to 2NF’s Class Page!
Welcome to Year 2!
Hello. My name is Mrs Forrester and I am one of the Year 2 teachers at Offley.
I started working at Offley in 2004. 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, phonics lead and English Leader for KS1 too. I have three young children of my own, one at high school, one which attends Offley and one starting pre-school this September! This means you will often see me taking them to various activities around Sandbach. Please do say hello if you see me!
I am really pleased to be training as a schools direct student at Offley. I have just graduated from Lancaster University and completed a degree in English Language and Linguistics. In my spare time I enjoy reading and dancing. I look forward to getting to know you all!
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. WE WILL SET HOME LEARNING WORK THROUGH MICROSOFT TEAMS.
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 / reading eggspress 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.
Here is what we’ve been up to in 2NF this week:.

Spring Term - 2021
Our topic this term is Dragons!
Mrs Clarkson will be the teaching assistant for Year 2 and she will help to support with our remote learning.
Due to the current lockdown, Miss Humphries is no longer going to her second placement school. We are very lucky that she will stay with us and help to support our remote learning and work with a key worker bubble in school.
Here is a peek of what our classroom will looks like. A little different to how I'd usually have it but hopefully it is still a bright, cheerful classroom with lots of happy smiley faces.
