READING

Reading is a very important part of learning in year 2.  Please read regularly and bring your reading book into school everyday.  If you would like to read some books online, try finding books from your bookband on OXFORD OWL.  Click on the icon below to go straight to the web page.

 

PHONICS

We will also remind ourselves of the phonics learning in year 1, building upon this to help develop every child's reading fluency and understanding.    We will revise Phase 4 and then move onto Phase 5 and 6 throughout the year.  See below for some helpful online phonics practice.
