Some ideas about how you can help your child at home.
A Summary of English in Year 2
Phonics are the building blocks of reading and writing, and a fundamental part of the English curriculum. All children are taught phonics daily: 3 days a week they are split into differenciated groups, and 2 days the teaching is whole class. This ensures some exposure to a breadth of sounds, and some more focused teaching.
We follow a programme called 'Letters and Sounds', which breaks the learning down into 6 phases. Information on each phase can be found below.
A link to a video of clear enunciation of sounds is also below: parents can support teachers by watching this to clarify how sounds should be pronounced!
