Friday 17th November 2017 CHILDREN IN NEED 50p Non-School Uniform day

Year 2

Welcome to the Year Two hub page.

We are looking forward to getting to know you and your children throughout this year. Please check this page regularly as we will be sharing our children's work with you on a regular basis. You can also check out our Twitter page @HogarthAcademy for regular events/updates.

We will send homework on a Friday night and ask that it is returned on the following Wednesday. Spellings will also be handed out on Fridays and tested on the following Friday.


Year Two is the final year of Key Stage One. All children in Year Two will have SATs and they will take place during May 2017. These are tests set by the government to see how well the children can read, how well they can spell and use punctuation and grammar, how well they can write and how confident they are in mathematics.

The children will be tested in the following areas:

  • Maths Arithmetic (fast calculations)
  • Maths Reasoning (word problems)
  • Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar (SPaG)
  • Reading Comprehension

Please look at the exemplar tests I have put on this page to familiarise yourself with the sort of test your child will need to undertake. We are working hard to get the children ready and to make sure they all do their best that they can. You will be invited into school for a meeting regarding SATs and how we can support your child further. Please feel free to come and talk to me if you have any worries about these tests.

If your child did not pass the phonics screening at the end of Year One, they will be re-screened in June to check that they have caught up to their peers.  I have attached last years test for you to have a look at too.

There will also be lots of fantastic things happening in Year 2 this year and I will be adding them on here for you to see. I will also be putting on links to helpful websites/interactive games that can be enjoyed and will further learning at home.

If you have any questions about how your child is doing at school please do not hesitate to contact me.

Many Thanks,
Miss Cooper
