Home Reading Books: Your child will have access to online reading books and we will issue school reading books after the children have settled into school. More information to follow.

Visit the Pearson's Active Learn website where you can access our Bug Club. Here we have allocated your child a selection of reading books for the book band they are currently on. Once they have logged in, if they click ‘My Stuff’ they will see the books that have been allocated to them. The log ins for this website will be sent via SeeSaw. Please listen to your child read as you normally would. Choose at least two books to read per week.  


This September, we will be launching Seesaw again. This is an excellent way to communicate with your child's class teacher. Look out for the QR code in your child's school bag.  Remember to use your home journal codes to start creating your journals on Seesaw. The teachers can see what you are posting and share activities and announcements. 

Year 2 Common Exception Words - Let's read and spell them!

Phonics Screening for Year 2 pupils 


Schools will be asked to administer a phonics screening check for year 2 pupils in the autumn, after the June test was missed because of coronavirus.

The Standards and Testing Agency announced in its most recent update for schools that it is proposing an autumn check to avoid all year 2 pupils having to take the test in June next year. 


Under the normal system, pupils who don’t meet the expected standard or miss the test in year 1 take it again the following summer.

But partial school closures meant the check did not go ahead for pupils currently in year 1 last month. 


In its update, the STA said its current proposal, which is subject to “the necessary legislation being made”, is that schools will administer “a past version of the check” to year 2 pupils “during the second half of the 2020 autumn term”.
