In Year 2, we cover SPAG (Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar), reading comprehension and the Power of Reading sequences in our English lessons.

We use Reading V.I.P.E.R.S to help us during comprehension. We have help sheets with sentence stems that help us form a super answer!

Read to Write

We follow the Read to Write POS sequences in our English lessons. Our lessons are based on a book. The book then gives us exciting writing opportunities!

This year we will be using the following texts in our English lessons:

  • A River by Marc Martin
  • The Night Gardener
  • The Bog Baby
  • Grandad's Island
  • The King who banned the dark.
  • Rosie Revere

We love our English lessons because the books are engaging and make us think deeper about the story! We produce outstanding writing from these books.

You can find a breakdown of exactly what is included with each book’s sequence on the Y2 Yearly Overview!


We are read aloud to everyday by an adult. We take part in whole class Guided Reading sessions, where we use our V.I.P.E.R.S sheets to help us answer questions based on what we have read as a class. We love using the fancy sentence stems to impress in our writing and oral discussions!
