During Year 2, children become more fluent readers as they practice and develop their phonics skills. They also have regular spelling tests on topics such as homophones, suffixes and apostrophes. Regular reading practice, handwriting practice and spelling tests help children develop their writing.
At the end of Year 2, all children must sit Key Stage 1 (KS1) SATs, a set of tricky tests in English Reading, Maths and Spelling, Punctuation & Grammar (SPaG). Preparation is vital!
In maths, children deepen their counting skills by learning to count in multiples (such as 2, 5 and 10) and learn about place value. They will also tackle arithmetic calculations involving 2-digit numbers, learn to distinguish between odd and even numbers and begin to explore fractions, multiplication, measurements and geometry.
