At Yew Tree Primary, we use Boom Reader to record your child’s reading journey. By downloading the app, you can record the support that your child receives at home so that staff can see and you can see what reading they are completing with teachers whilst at school. 

Boom Reader is free and easy to download and takes minutes to connect to the school and your child’s reading records. If you have more than one child at Yew Tree you can add them through the one app. All your children’s reading records are in one app and you can swap between the children’s records at the touch of button.

Magnificent Monarchs

Year 2 have a new topic called 'Magnificent Monarchs'. Through this project, the children will learn all about past and present kings and queens. The journey will take the children through the English and British monarchy from AD 871 to the present day. They will also enjoy an art project called 'Portraits and Poses', and will develop a recipe fit for our king.

Home Learning


You can support your child with learning at home by spending time reading with your child and listening to them read. You could always visit the local library to choose some books together!


You can also help your child to learn to read and spell the Year 2 common exception words. See attachment below.


We would encourage you to follow your children's interests and if they want to learn more about our topic or complete any projects at home they can do! 


There are also lots of educational websites we subscribe to that children can access - see links below

99 Club

Every Friday in Year 2 the children take part in 99 club. We use this to help the children improve the time tables knowledge and speed. This is something that can also take place at home. Underneath you can find an example of each club that you can use to help the children practise.
