Year 2

End of Key Stage One SATs are at the start of the summer term. It is vital that you read with your child every day to support them as much as possible with their reading. They will receive a guided reading book (pitched at their specific level) and a free choice book every week.

Please ensure that your child has the correct PE kit in school for their lesson on a Wednesday. It is essential that you read with your child at home every day. Your child will be given a levelled reading book by the teacher and a free choice book each week. There is an amazing new library in Penge stocked with a fantastic range of children's books. Please do go and visit.

The children will be learning music all year with our specialist music teacher. They will have their weekly session on a Friday afternoon.
 

SATs

The Key Stage 1 SATs happen at the end of the school year (usually in June). The best thing you can do at home to aid your child is to be reading every day and to ensure that your child is in school, and on time, everyday.
 

Phonics Screening Check

Due to school closure during the 19/20 academic year, year 2 children will be sitting the phonics screening check in the autumn term. If they do not pass this, they will sit it again formally in June 2020, alongside the current year 1 children.
