In Year 1 we will be focussing on the common exception words for spelling. Your child will bring home 5 words per week to learn, sometimes more. These will be personal to your child. They will also bring home spellings that follow the sound patterns that we are learning in class. These sheets will need to stay at home so that you can practise and revisit the spelling throughout the year. Consistency and repitition is key to embedding knowledge and therefore making the spellings 'stick' and be used confidently and accurately in everyday writing. This is our ultimate goal.
Here are the list of Year 1 common exception words as well as the Year 2 words.
