Year 1 children will be given 5 words to learn each week starting from October half term, moving to 10 words a week from January. Year 2 will have 10 words to learn weekly. We would love it if you could help your child by writing and reading these words. Spelling tests will take place on a Friday.
Year 1 and 2 Common Exception words
Your child will be bringing home a word tin containing 5 sounds that we have been focusing upon during our phonics sessions. These sounds are important when helping the children learn to spell independently, so if you could help them to become confident with them it would be great! This doesn’t have to be done in a formal way, you could write/ say as many words that you can think of with that sound, in a minute and then challenge the children to beat your score.
