Year 2 Spellings for the week beginning 13th July:

More words using a mix of suffixes again this week. 


Remember, a suffix is a group of letters that join to the end of a word to make another word, but watch out for words ending with 'y':


When a word ends in ‘y’ and you want to add a suffix, you usually have to change the ‘y’ to an ‘i’

so happy + ly becomes happi + ly = happily. 


friendly, spotless, powerful, neatly, forgetful, movement.

There you will find 'Wing' and also many other short film clips which you can watch and talk about with your family. Let me know which ones you think are the most interesting.

Welcome to Mars Class!




The adults that work in this class are Mrs Deane (Monday -Thursday), Mrs Carswell (Friday) and our HLTA is Mrs Hamblin.



Our PE days this term will be a Thursday and Friday.

Please ensure you have full PE kits in school, both for outdoor and indoor PE.  Long hair needs to be tied back and earring studs must be covered with tape, or removed on PE days.  The latter is preferable to avoid hair tangles in the classroom.


On a Friday, children will be given spellings to learn in an orange Spellings Book which they are expected to practice at home in the front of the book, writing each word in a sentence to show they understand the context in which to use it.  These will be tested each Thursday in the back of the book so that the results can be shared at home.


There is a document on this page that will provide support with a range of strategies that could be used at home to help with spellings.


Maths homework is given out on a Friday and must be returned to school the following Wednesday.  Please ask us if you have any questions or concerns regarding this – we are happy to help.
