Teach your Year 2 English is a reference guide and home-teaching kit which will help you understand exactly what literacy skills your child is expected to have mastered in Year 2.

Primary school teacher and parent Alice Hart has prepared a mixture of information, tips and activities to ensure that you have the right facts at your fingertips to check your child has fully grasped and achieved each and every Y2 English skill, using the same methods that they are taught (rather than confusing them with the ones you learned at school!).

In Teach your child Year 2 English, you’ll discover:

  • The vocabulary/terminology your child is being taught at school, so you can refer to the same concepts at home.
  • An explanation of the methods they use in the classroom so you don’t end up doing more harm than good by trying to teach them in a different way.
  • Why it is so important to talk to your child about their learning so you can ensure they understand literacy techniques and how to apply them.
