Year 2 Powerpoint presentation for September 2020

Dear Neptune Class,


It has been so lovely to see some of you on the zoom meetings. Thank you so much for sending in your Castle  work. I have loved seeing it and am so pleased you have enjoyed doing it. What a popular topic! I’m so proud of all of you.


Over the next couple of weeks, you will be learning about plants. Don’t forget to send your work in so that we can share it with everyone.


Take care,

Miss Shaw & Mrs Parsons

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.


Children can do additional spelling and grammar work on the Planet Teach website.

Their passwords are inside their Reading Records.

Welcome to Neptune Class!




The adults that work in this class are Miss Shaw and Mrs Parsons.


Our PE days this term are Monday and Thursday. Please ensure that the children have all of the correct kit in school, both for outdoor and indoor PE. Long hair needs to be tied back and earrings must be covered with tape, or removed on PE days. 


On a Friday, children will be given spellings to learn in an orange Spellings Book which they are expected to practise 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 due in the following Wednesday. Please do not hesitate to speak to us if you have any concerns or questions.
