In Year Two, we are friendly, enthusiastic and hardworking . We have high expectations and love to challenge ourselves in everything that we do. In this year we develop greater independence and learn to get along with others when we work together in groups. We also learn to have a go at our learning before asking for help.

Tests and assessments

Key stage 1

Key stage 1 tests cover:

  • English reading
  • English grammar, punctuation and spelling
  • Maths – arithmetic and reasoning

Your child will take the tests in May. We make the tests part of the children’s everyday learning and they do them in small groups with the teacher so that no pressure is put upon them. Most of the children actually enjoy working through the tests.

The tests become part of an evidence base for the class teacher to make a teacher assessment towards the end of June. This is a statutory assessment, which means we have to report levels to the government, and you will receive the results as part of your child’s end of year report.

 Phonics screening check re-sit.

The check will take place in June when the Y1 pupils have their statutory phonics check. Children in Year 2 who were not ready to pass the test in Year 1 will sit the new version of the test. Their result will be reported as part of their end of year report.
