Welcome to Year 2 at primary school!
In schools in England, Year 2 is for children 6–7 years old, and is the last year of Key Stage 1. There will be a continued focus on phonics, while in maths your child will be introduced to fractions.
The end of the year sees the Key Stage 1 SATs – statuatory tests to check that your child is working at the expected level.

The National Curriculum tests or SATs can seem like a daunting part of your child’s education, but if you know what to expect, they don’t need to be scary for you or your child!
