Children need their bookbag in school each day and they should be reading at least 3 times a week at home.

Spelling tests are done on Fridays.
In Year 2, children are expected to:
  • Read their reading book to an adult. We recommend at least 3 times per week for approximately 10-20 minutes on each occasion
  • Read their shared reading book. This is a book that an adult reads to their child. Comprehension questions and vocabulary are encouraged as discussion points
  • Children are expected to play Numbots and Times Table Rock Stars at least three times a week for 10 minutes (We will be introducing Times Tables Rock Stars later in the term)

  • Complete topic projects which will be set termly (3 per year)

  • Learn spellings which will be tested each Friday. Spellings can be found in your child's blue spelling test book which must stay in your child's book bag

  • Optional tasks will be provided which link with learning from the term

We follow 'No Nonsense Spelling' to support our teaching of spelling in Year 2. We also use 'Unlocking Letters and Sounds' to support our revision of phonics. 
This is our current overview for phonics in Year 2 at the moment.
Please find resources to support you with your child's learning below.
Children's login details for Numbots and Times Table Rockstars can be found in their reading record. If you cannot find them, please ask your child's class teacher.
