Year 2

Year 2 is an opportunity for the children to build on the skills they have developed in EYFS and Year 1.  As they are approaching the end of their time in Key Stage 1, we continue to encourage them in being independent learners, so that they are ready for when they move into Key Stage 2.
Through our curriculum, the children have opportunities to make links to previous learning, supporting them to know more and remember more.

Each child has a yellow reading diary, that needs to be in school daily.  We ask that the children read to an adult every day, so that they can continue to develop their skills. We ask a child to read their book three times. Once for decoding new words, the second is to develop their fluency and the third is to check their comprehension skills. 
The children are also encouraged to read a book for pleasure and this may be a book they choose to hear being read to them. Reading to a child is just as important as hearing them read, as they hear the fluency and expression adults use as they share a story.  
All reading should be recorded in their reading diary. 


Your child will be set weekly homework.  It is important that the children complete this homework, as it consolidates the learning they have been doing in class.  Each week, your child will have:

  • Reading – please read daily with your child. This should be their online reading book linked to their phonics as well as a reading for pleasure book.  Hearing others read is just as important!  Please record all reading in their yellow reading records.
  • Spellings
  • Phonics or spelling pattern activity
  • English
  • Maths

Homework is set on a Friday and is to be returned on a Thursday.
