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).

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.
