Supporting Learning at Home

We recognise the extremely important role that parents play in their child’s education. We want to work in partnership to help parents develop their skills supporting their child’s learning at home. If parents would like any support with developing home learning please see Miss Reynolds or Mr Smith

Every week we change the children’s home reading books (when possible), as well as sending home spellings, times tables, mental maths and homework for the children to learn and complete.

Year Two Expectations

The children in Year Two are assessed against the Target Tracker bands to ensure all children are making good progress.

 

2B 2B+ 2W 2W+ 2S 2S+
Autumn Spring Summer
The end of year two expectation is a 2S. 

 

Children are given targets to move their learning forward.

For reading, writing and maths the Year Two children will also be assessed against the interim assessment framework. Pupils need to meet all of the statements to be awarded the standard. At the end of the academic year, for these subjects we will report on whether each child is working towards, at expected, or above the expected standard of year two.
