2SA 2018 - 2019
Hi my name is Miss Allan and this is my third year teaching at Offley Primary Academy. I coordinate Science with Mrs Maddox and we are already very excited for our next Science week here at Offley. I am passionate about embracing practical opportunities for the children to expand their learning by making lessons fun. At home I love spending time with my three dogs; especially my pug Darcy, I also thoroughly enjoy craft projects. 2SA is also very lucky to have Mrs Clarkson and Mrs Gray spending some time in our class during the week.
2SA’s P.E slots take place on a Monday and Friday afternoon. Please ensure your child has their P.E. kit for each of these days.
Children are prompted to change their reading book each day, if they have read their book. We encourage children to read atleast four times a week and they will recieve a sticker for this, consistent reading each week will enable children to receive the reading treat at the end of term.
We have had a super week here in 2SA!
In maths we have been developing our fluency skills using our knowledge of number bonds. We also used part-part whole and two step procedures to solve calculations. We also had lots of fun playing on Timetable Rockstars and practising time tables ready for year 3.
In English we have been writing our own sea creature poems, we loved finding rhyming words and look forward to sharing our poems with others.
Here is an example:
The silly piranha is very clumsy
Don’t get too near or they’ll bite
They’ll flip their fins all day and night
In the morning it’ll be ready to bite
With glowing whiskers
They’ll give you a fright
In science, we have been exploring larger habitats such as forests, deserts and lakes. We discussed what an animal needs from its habitat to keep it alive. We then chose our own animals and described how they are suited for that habitat.
We were very lucky to watch the year 5 drumming assembly on Thursday and loved listening to them playing Japanese drums! Well done year 5!
Next week (16th July)
It is our final week in year 2, I can’t believe it!
We will have lots of fun activities planned including group project work based on our sea creature topic.
