Making Reading Fun!
What should my child be able to do at the end of Year 2?
Reading is not a race and children all develop and progress at different rates and different times. However, there are things we can do to help them along the way!
At the end of Year 2:
Children should be able to read common words without having to sound them out, meaning that their reading is fluent.
They should be able to retell some stories that they heard from months ago.
They should have a knowledge and familiarity with lots of different types of books.
They can go back and check a text makes sense to them.
They can recite a simple poem.
