Year 2 have weekly spellings that are sent home in book bags on Friday to be learnt at home. The best way to learn them is to write them out several times using the look, say, cover, write and check method. Spelling books must be returned on Wednesday and spellings are tested between Wednesday and Friday in the back of their books. Initially, children bring home personalised spellings based on the first 300 high frequency words. Once they have mastered these, spellings are taken from our weekly spelling focus in school. 

Top tips:

  • Practising little and often is better than all at once!
  • Some children might choose to then write their spellings into a sentence but this is optional.
  • Dojo points are awarded for evidence in their books of practise as well as for spelling test results.
  • Writing spellings out using the 'innies' and 'outies' of cursive writing is great handwriting practise!



Reading books are changed on a Monday and Friday and kept in between so that children have plenty of time to read, discuss and re-read for fluency. They must bring their book bag into school everyday though, with their reading books and red reading record for school reading. If you would like extra books then please ask. It is really helpful if parents can date and tick, or add a comment,  each time children read at home.  It is expected that children will read at home daily with a grown up, including talking about the book. 

Top tips:

  • Reading daily for short bursts is better than all at once for a lengthy time. 
  • If you get stuck on a word have a go at sounding it out and breaking it down. 
  • If you come across an unfamiliar word make sure you find out the meaning of it. 
  • Think about what might happen next in the story.
  • Look at how the book is organised. 
  • What punctuation has been used.
