In light of the recent news about school closure there will be no weekly spellings.
The children should be able to spell all the words on the downloadable word list below by the end of year 2. Please practise them with your child. It is helpful if your child can write the word in the context of a sentence. (You could use the 'look, say, cover, check' method shown at the bottom of this page and play the Word Hunt or Jigsaw games).
Spellings will be given out to the children every Friday
and tested on the following Friday.

If there are any words your child is finding difficult to spell or read, you could play this game.
Put the words on post it notes / pieces of paper and hide them around your house. You could hide them anywhere indoors or outside, under their bed or even in their coat pockets.
When your child finds these words they have to read them or write them down. Time how long it takes your child to find all the words then see if they can beat the time when they repeat the activity.
Write the word your child is learning on a piece of paper and then cut out each letter. Your child then has to put the pieces back together to make the word. Once your child is more familiar with the words you could write sentences which include the spelling words, cut up these sentences into individual words and then children put back together and read the sentence. This helps your child to put their spelling words in context.
