Reading

In Year 2 we have class and individual reading activities. We use different strategies to read new or tricky words, such as:

  • phonics - sounding out each sound or 'special friends' in a word and blending them together;
  • 'chunking' - chunk/split the word into 'chinks'/syllables, then sound out and blend each 'chunk' and last blend/read all the 'chunks' together;
  • using our knowledge of CEW, reading them by sight/memory

 

Comprehension

Reading comprehension is the ability to read a text and understand its meaning, the ability to answer questions about it using the text to explain answers. 

In Year 2 we are using the Canine Gang who help us to answer different type of question, based on what you have read.
