End of Year Expectations
Usually children in Year 2 would be expected to sit end of year SAT papers. However, the government have said that in light of the current situation, the children will not sit any tests this year. The following link takes you to past SATs papers. The expectation is not that the children do these (unless they really want to!), but I felt that the questions would give you an insight into the end of year expectation, and may help if you are trying to think of particular focuses or questions for your child. I have also added a link to the Year 2 National Curriculum, again so you are able to familiarise yourselves with the end of Year 2 expectations.
