Year 2 is an important year for the children; they are in their final year of Key Stage 1 and are becoming confident, independent learners. 

This is an exciting time for your child's reading development. Their fluency will improve and they will develop strategies that will help them show greater understanding of what they are reading

New responsibilities are given to Year 2 children and one of the opportunities they are given is becoming a Playground Buddy. A Buddy's job is to act as a supportive role model to the younger children in the school during lunch and break times.                                                                                    

The children start to be rewarded using the school credit dot system where they are rewarded for good behaviour, effort and attainment. They are then able to 'spend' their credits on various treats throughout the term.
