Organisation of Spellings in Year 2

Spellings will be uploaded each Friday and I will also teach that week’s spellings to the children in class.

The National Curriculum lists a set of spelling rules/patterns which children in Year 2 must learn.  

Thus, some of the weekly spellings will be based upon these rules.  As well as this, the children will be learning to spell 2 words per week from the Year 2 ‘Common Exception Words’ List. These words are displayed in class and the children will be familiar with them through our Spellings lessons.


Children will be tested on Fridays.  We will send home Spellings Books at the end of each term for you to have a look at.  The spellings will be marked weekly and we will let the children know how they did on a 1:1 basis.  

Please remember to make learning spellings fun – little and often is best! Thank you for your support.

Mrs Kelleher


Nb. If your child is finding the spellings too tricky, then we will adapt them accordingly to meet their needs. Thank you.
