Materials to Support the Year 2 Curriculum:

In addition to homework provided, the following resources are offered to parents in order to:

  • help them gain an insight into the nature and content of some of the key areas of Literacy and Numeracy taught during Year 2.
  • provide them with a resource bank of materials, to support additional work that may take place at home.

Although explanatory notes are given, it is always important to talk to Class Teachers to get information about learning taking place, progress and advice on how to support children individually.

Developing children's ability to understand what's happening within a text (i.e. to read "beyond the literal" and infer meaning) is just as important as teaching them how to spell words correctly.  The below comprehensions give you examples of this.  We've grouped them according to National Curriculum Levels.
