Reading and Phonics

Phonics is an integral part of our weekly routines in Year 2. In continuation of EYFS and Year 1, phonics in Year 2 follows the principles and practice of the DfE’s programme Letters and Sounds. By the end of Key Stage One, our aim is for all children to become fluent readers and increasingly accurate spellers.

Y2 Statutory Assessments

In Year 2, the government require that children are assessed on how they have performed through KS1. This is done in two ways:

  • National Curriculum tests  (SATS) for maths and reading
  • Teacher Assessment for maths , reading, writing and science

The tests (SATS) usually take place throughout the month of May. 

Y2 Curriculum

Our topics this year will be:

Term 1: 

Term 2: 

Term 3:
