Spellings will be set on a Monday. I will print out a list that the children will stick into their spelling book to take home. All spellings will be taught during the week in class and activities will be set to support your child throughout the week; however, these words will also need practising at home. All spellings will be tested on a Friday morning. The spelling list for each week will be put on here as well for parents and in case any go missing between school and home.
Your spellings will include 5 words from the Year 2 common exception list and 5 words from the phase 6 phonics pattern we are focusing on in class. On a Friday, the spelling test will also include 2 extra words which follow the pattern we have been learning – these words need to be spelt correctly in order to earn an additional star speller sticker.
Year 3 and 4:Your spellings will include 5 words from the Year 3 and 4 list and 5 words from the spelling pattern we are focusing on in class. The spelling test on a Friday will include 1 to 2 sentences of dictation which include the year3/4 word list spellings and then a test on the 5 remaining spelling pattern words. Two extra words which follow the pattern we have been learning will also be tested in order to earn a star speller sticker.
