Year 2 pupil's will be required to read a selection of texts and answer a range of questions on each section. These questions ask children to apply their understanding of the text and topic they have read, as well retrieve information from within the texts.
Last year's SATs reading paper included 3 different texts, a short story, an information piece and a poem.
Pupils need to read these texts INDEPENDENTLY and silently. Therefore being able to read at length is very important. We ask each child to read as much as possible as often as possible, this will build their stamina to read longer texts and in preparation for these reading papers.
