In English we will continue to focus on  the key skills needed in Year 1 and 2 - these will include handwriting, spellings of everyday words and using capital letters and full stops in the correct place.  We will also be developing our stamina for writing when completing longer writing tasks and also looking at some non-fiction texts. In year 2 we will be looking at using possessive apostrophes, commas in lists and exclamation sentences. Alongside this we will also be looking at using words containing suffixes.

We will be looking at traditional tales
