In the first half term we will be building on the learning that has taken place in year 1, starting with a look at different imaginary stories and then beginning to write stories of our own. 

Children will begin the year recapping on the phonics that was learnt in Year 1 and then moving the focus onto Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar (SPaG)
