Spelling

Autumn Term 2017

 

Year 2 phonics and SPaG will be taught by Miss Cornelius.

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 which is brought home at the end of each half term. 

 

Your first half term spelling list will be able to be found here in the next week or so.

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!

The weekly spelling list is taken from a list of statutory words (words that children must be able to spell by the end of the academic year, in order to demonstrate that they working at the expected level for their age) and words that contain year 2 spelling patterns to be learnt.

Please encourage your child to practise their words until they don't get them wrong.
