Spellings

Spellings
 
Our aim is to set spellings on a Monday and to test them on a Friday.  The children are given time in school each day to 'look, say, cover, write, check' the words on the list so you may find that they do not need to spend a huge amount of time practising them at home.
 
The words in set 1 have come from English Appendix 1: Spelling.
The words in set 2 were initially common exception words taken from the same document.  Since Christmas, we have chosen groups of words that follow a simple sound pattern.
 
We have talked to the children about which set we think would be appropriate for them - please email us if you would like further information about this.
