Reading

Shared and Guided Reading

 To support the children with their reading skills we are now teaching Shared Reading on a daily basis in Year 2. The children are enjoying reading lots of different texts;  talking about reading strategies, exploring the meaning of new vocabulary and answering questions about their reading. 

Guided Reading

Every child will read on a rota basis as a member of a small group to apply the skills they have learn in Shared Reading.

 Sight words

By the end of Year two it is the expectation that the majority of children will be able to read these words instantly. This will enable them to read with greater fluency and understanding. 

Sight Words

Writing

We have planned lots of exciting writing opportunities for our children this term. Alongside building the children's stamina and revisiting previous learning we will be focusing on using verbs, adverbs and adding suffixes to spell longer words. 

 Spelling

By the end of Year two it is the expectation that the majority of children will be able to spell these words correctly. This will enable them to write with  confidence and fluency.
