The spellings for the next two weeks continue to be common exception words – words that don’t follow the usual spellings rules or are an exception in some way. In the first week, learn your spellings using the look, say, cover, write, check method. In the second week, try doing the ‘connect the dots’ to write your spellings. You can see what this is below.

 

Year 1 

  • push
  • put
  • said
  • saw
  • says

Year 2

  • Monday
  • Tuesday
  • Wednesday
  • Thursday

This week we’ve been looking at the rules for when we add -er or -est to a root word. For example, where there is a y, change it to an i when you add the suffix. Where there is a short vowel sound such as in hot, double up on the consonant: hot -> hotter.

Practise adding the two suffixes to the following root words:

nice     late     rude     brave     happy     funny     hot     write     tall     ripe

This week, we’ve been learning about homophones.

Homophones are words that sound the same but have different meanings and different spellings. This makes them hard to spell correctly when we’re writing.

This week, practise spelling these homophones. The best way to do this is to practise using them in sentences – think about your handwriting, too!
