Year 2 have had a brilliant start to the new school year! We have been reading the book ‘Giraffes Can’t Dance’ and have had our own jungle dance and have been thinking about Gerald the giraffe’s feelings. Children have started to do some super writing in their brand new English books with special handwriting lines.
A target for all children is to be practicing their phonics and spellings. After their hard work in Year 1 for the phonics screening test, it appears that some sounds have gone to the back of the children’s minds. We now need to bring them back to the forefront!
To help you child at home, there are some videos on YouTube to be watching at home to help you and your child remind themselves of their phonics knowledge.

There’s Phase 5 and Phase 3 videos along with reading tricky real and alien words to be practicing!
