Spellings

Term 6

I am really so proud of the children's progress and improvements in our daily Letters and Sounds/Spellings Sessions this term.  In our sessions over the past two weeks, I have been giving the children 'incorrect sentences' and I'm blown away by how they identify the spelling errors. Thank you for supporting the children at home - it really has made a difference and well done Yellow Class! 

 

This will be our last Spellings Check of the year and, next week, I will send home their Spellings books. Over the summer, if you wish to, you could revisit any of our previous spellings patterns or suffixes.  Thank you all. smiley

 

Spellings for checking on Friday 16th July

Phase 6/CEW

  • sure
  • whole
  • only
  • would
  • parent
  • ????????
  • ????????

 

+ I will choose a random extra 2 words from the whole of the Year 2 CEW List.  We have spent time in class reading and writing these words so it shouldn't be too much of challenge!

 

 

There are no Spellings this week  for Mrs Willis's Groups.  She will be focusing on revising the phonemes for this term.

Phase 6 

Compound Words (The children will be asked to write the compound word, not the ___ + ___ version!)

  1. tooth + brush = toothbrush
  2. bath + room = bathroom
  3. gold + fish = goldfish
  4. foot + ball = football
  5. sun + flower = sunflower
  6. rattle + snake = rattlesnake

 

Please note:  This term, I will ask the children to write 1 of these words within a sentence as part of a 'dictation'.  This means that the children will have to write a whole sentence exactly as I 'dictate' it to them.  I will also include some of the Year 2 Common Exception Words within this sentence, as well as the main spelling word.  

 

Thank you all for your support in learning our weekly spellings at home - the children have done consistently well in their spelling checks and our daily Letters and Sounds lessons are really successful.  This has all been helped, I am sure, by reinforcement at home. 

Common Exception Words

It might be worth choosing some of the CEW which your child finds tricky to spell and working on 4-5 of these each week.  I am going to be recapping them in school too. Thank you.

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.
