You may already know that Year 2 is an assessment Year and the children will sit SATS papers in May next year. SATs are standardised assessment tests administered by primary schools in England to children in Year 2 and Year 6 to check their educational progress. We will have a meeting early next year to discuss what is required and how we can work together to support the children and get them ready for these assessments.
Reading is a huge focus this year and we will be encouraging the children to read daily. Please read with your child everyday even if it is a couple of pages, the back of a cereal box, even the subtitles of their favourite TV show!! Reading has a huge impact on your children's learning and development. It stimulates their imagination and expands their understanding of the world. Read read read!

Each week there will be spelling homework. (The children will be tested every Friday)
