Every Monday, your child will be taught a new spelling rule to practise during the week, ready for a spelling test on Friday. Please spend time at home practising these spellings using ‘look, say, cover, write and check’ in the Spelling Homework Booklets, as well as discussing the spelling rule. Please ensure spelling books are kept in school bags. You also now have a Spelling Shed login (in the front of your child's yellow reading diary) for use to further practise spellings at home.




In Year Two, children learn to orally retell different types of texts using story maps and actions. We ask all parents to support children with learning these texts at home orally, so that children can use them to create their own versions. The table below highlights the text types and texts that we are learning in Year Two. Please download the texts and practise retelling them.  Aim to retell the texts with actions and expression!
