 YEARLY CURRICULUM OVERVIEW

 

 

Jolly Phonics

 In Year 1 all children across the country are expected to sit the Phonics Screening test. As this did not take place last academic year your children will have the screening in Year 2.  This will take place in Autumn 2 after the half term. Your child will continue to be taught the sounds they need to know in order to be able to read the words on the test.  For the test the children are asked to read real and 'alien' words to test their phonics knowledge. To help prepare your child there are some links to games and resources below. You can use these to practise blending sounds together. The children have been exposed to these games and know how to use them. As well as this please also use Fast Phonics which can be accessed through your children's Reading Eggs account!

Ob and Bob

Buried Treasure

Dragon's Den

Please also continue to practise the sounds below:

 

SATS

 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

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!
