Welcome to the Year 2 English Page!

Testing: May and June 2017

  • Two Reading tests will be used to assess Childrens' skills.
  • All children are expected to pass the Phonics Screening Test by the end of KS1, and Children will need to take this test at the end of Year 2 if they have not yet passed it.  This will be discussed with Parents.  

We read the beautiful story 'Coming Home' by Michael Morpurgo, and this inspired some amazing descriptive writing.  This tells the tale of a robin migrating across a frozen land to his home.

Through dark forests, driving rain, clapping thunder and flashing lightning. Across frozen wastes, huge mountains and stormy seas he flies. And all the while he's dreaming of home. Of her. But will he ever get there?
