This week’s spellings are more common exception words (words that don’t follow the usual spelling rules). There are lots of ideas in our super spelling strategies to help you child learn them.

Perhaps you could draw a shape around each word to show the ascenders (letters that stick up high) and descenders (letters that go below the line).

 

Year 1

  • Monday
  • Tuesday
  • Wednesday
  • Thursday
  • Friday
  • Saturday
  • Sunday

Year 2

  • half
  • hold
  • hour
  • improve
  • kind
  • last
  • many

This week’s spellings are ‘common exception’ words – words that don’t follow the usual spelling rule or pattern. We keep spellings for two weeks. On the first week, children need to read and write the word using the ‘look, say, cover, write, check’ method. On the second week, they can write them using rainbow writing. There are some more ideas here too.

 

Year 1

  • there
  • their
  • they
  • to
  • today

This half-term, our spellings are linked to the rules and strategies we’ll be learning in class:

  • homophones (words that sound the same but are spelled differently)
  • spelling patterns: ant/ance, ent/ence
  • adding prefixes: co and re
  • adding prefixes: un, dis, im, in, ir, il
  • apostrophes for contraction and possession

Each Friday, you’ll be tested on 8 of the words from the list below.

desert silence apparent unnecessary frequent
dessert sufficient attendance compliment principle
unavailable scissors cooperate complement principal
convenience stationary re-enter reinvent inconvenient
illegal stationery prophet nuisance  
innocence impossible profit existence  
excellence unconscious coordinate hindrance

Here are your new  40 words for this half-term. Let’s get learning them! How you decide to do this is up to you. You might decide to focus on the trickiest words first. Or, you might decide to learn 8 words a week and really focus on these whilst still practising the others, too. For some of you, you might already feel confident with some of the words so might choose to not practise these at all.If you need some ideas for practical things to do, check out the Super Spelling Strategies Guide on the school website.
