Here is some information about Year Two at Holy Rood Catholic Primary School:
Hard work always pays off
With so much to learn this year, it’s important not to fall behind, so please try to make sure the children are in school each day, on time and with the correct equipment. Regular attendance makes a massive difference to progress and attainment.
We use the Oxford Reading Tree scheme books, that are colour coded into reading bands. Children progress through the colours as they show that they can both read and understand the texts. Each time they move up a band we’ll write it in their Reading Record. Books will be changed weekly on a Tuesday.
English spelling is sometimes tricky. But, good spelling makes a good first impression so many times in adult life, whether you're applying for a job, writing a report or even just emailing. In primary school, good spelling is still an important part of Key Stage 2 SATs. Feeling confident about spelling can also boost children’s writing to a higher level, encouraging them to use more adventurous, exciting vocabulary.
The children take part in daily phonics sessions to support their spelling, reading and writing. Please ensure that they practice their weekly spellings as these will include common exception words, as well as sounds that they have learnt this week.
