This half term we will be revising and building on the phonics children learnt in Year 1.
This year Year 2 children will need to take the Phonic Screening Check in Autumn 2.
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.
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.
By the end of Year two it is the expection that the majority of children will be able to read these words instantly. This will enable them to read with greater fluency and understanding.
We have planned lots of exciting writing opportunities for our children this half term. We are concentrating on building up the children's confidence and stamina in writing as well revisiting the spelling of sight vocabulary and sentence structure.
By the end of Year two it is the expection that the majority of children will be able to spell these words correctly. This will enable them to write with confidence and fluency.
