  • To read all Year 1 and Year 2 common exception words

In Year 2, most children will be able to read simple texts. They will be learning to answer questions about what they have read.

Some children will not be able to read simple texts yet. Please refer to the Phonic section (Phase 3 and 4) to help develop their skills.

Some children will be able to read more complex texts and will be able to answer simple questions.

It is important to make sure that your child is reading every day so they do not lose the skills they have already learnt. Please find lots of links to fantastic reading opportunities for you and your child to enjoy.









It is really important to practice phonics regularly. It helps the children to read and to spell. All children in Year 2 are learning (click links for videos);
