Year 1- 2017/2018
Year 1 phonics and SPaG will be taught by Mrs Marshall and Mrs Pasmore.
Spelling tests will be every Wednesday afternoon.
Spelling tests are completed in the children's school SPaG exercise book, so that they can be referred to during lessons and children are able to work on misspelled words.
In addition, they are able create a personalised spelling list, each half term, which comprises of all misspelt words and is brought home at the end of each half term for them to further practise and revise.
The majority of children will need daily practise in order to be secure in this skill.
Word lists are taken from the statutory spelling list that children are expected to be able to spell by the end of the academic year to show that they are working at the expected level for their age or relate directly to a phonics focus to be mastered.
Remember 'practise until you don't get them wrong' is a good strategy!

Year 1 Spring Term 2
No further spellings will be set until after Easter to ensure that there is adequate time to practice all previously misspelled words at home. Please take this opportunity to revise all words learnt and tested since September.
All your child's misspelled words from, the second half of the autumn term, weekly tests will be sent home in the first few weeks back in January.
We urge you to further support them in practising these please in order to 'keep up' rather than the need to 'catch up' at a later point.
All spellings sent home this half term were phase 2, 3 and 4 tricky words/Year One common exception words, plus 2 seasonal Year 2 common exception words (father and Christmas).
All these personalised spelling lists will be tested by staff W/C 12th February 2018.
These mini assessments are in addition to the weekly Wednesday spelling test.
