Welcome to Year 2
We will use this page to share useful learning resources for families to support their children's progress throughout their time in Year 2.
We hope you find these resources useful and engaging!
Reading, Reading, Reading!
A key aim of the National Curriculum is that all children should be able to read fluently by the end of Year 2.
Some children take to reading like a duck to water, others need lots more practise to become fluent.
Our school reading scheme is designed to match content closely to your child's stage in their reading journey while exposing them to a broad range of genres. This benefits not only reading fluency but also influences children's progress in writing across the curriculum.
All reading is heartily welcome and we encourage any and all reading whether that is the side of the cereal packet at the breakfast table to recipe books and your child's favourite fiction.
The more confidently your child can read, the greater will be their progress in all areas of learning.
Each week we will share a Y2 spelling pattern from the National Curriculum as well as five Challenge Words that are commonly misspelled.
Your child should ideally have memorised their 2, 5 and 10 times tables by the end of Year 2.
Lockdown is a great time to focus on this skill. Here you will find resources your child can use to practise this skill independently, while you work from home.
