Spelling tests will be weekly on a Friday and I will test the children on the spellings they have been practicing that week. It is very important that they spend time practicing their spellings as their application in writing is a key requirement for meeting age related expectations by the end of the year.
For a challenge, your child can write sentences using each of the spelling words and look up nouns in the dictionary to explore their meaning and develop their vocabulary.
Also, the common exception words for Year 1 and 2 are below. Practice with these words will also challenge your child and greatly benefit their writing and language development.
