Year 2 English Skills

Entering Year 2, your child will have a foundational understanding of the texts they read in class, especially during reading groups sessions.

This is a skill they’ll continue to develop as they discuss what they read with their peers, while building their vocabulary, punctuation and their overall reading skills.


Effective communication requires a wide vocabulary, so it’s important to keep learning new words.

When creating basic sentences, students should constantly be developing their vocabulary and become familiar with the way words can be used in a variety of contexts.

Learn about various strategies you can implement to help your child develop their vocabulary!

A great method you can use to help your child improve their vocabulary is by learning spelling list words and using those words in everyday conversations.

You may find your child is more autonomous with their reading and won’t be leaning towards you for as much help — but it’s always good to let them know that if they are unsure of how words sound, you’re around to help them work it out.

It’s also useful to ask them questions about what they’ve read so that they are actually absorbing what they are reading.

Discover different texts for your child to read with our Year 2 Recommended Reading List!


Now that your child is in Year 2, they will already be aware of the uses of question marks and exclamation marks. New concepts they’ll be learning are how to use commas and apostrophes.
