Spring 1

In year 2, it is crucial that children work on their basic literacy and maths skills.  We know that teaching children at home is very challenging, and we appreciate that it might be impossible to teach all of these lessons each week.  At St Denys Infants School, our priorities for year 2 children are as follows (in this order):

  1. Reading
  2. Phonics
  3. Maths
  4. English
  5. RE
  6. The other ‘foundation’ subjects.
