Spelling Practise and Weekly Quiz
Spellings will be sent home Monday weekly. The children will have the opportunity to learn them in class but to help them further, it would be great if you could encourage them to practise them at home too. They will be tested on them on Friday.
We are currently revisiting the Phonics and Tricky Words from Year 1 and we have been using Phonics Play to engage in various activities to test the children's understanding and consolidate their learning. You can gain free access to the website, during lockdown, here:

There is also a list of fun activity ideas for your child to learn their spellings, at the bottom of this page. Finally, a Spelling Activity will be added to Purple Mash weekly as an additional way to practise the weekly spellings. You will find your child's login details at the back of their Reading Diary.
Weekly Spelling Lists
Below you will find the weekly spelling lists. Please remember that the spellings have been differentiated according to your child's needs to ensure they become fluent in these and they are evident in their writing.
