This week’s spelling list is the next group of words from the common exception words list. Write them in your neatest handwriting. Remember that letters sit on the line. Start each letter with a leading line and, if you’re feeling confident, try to join your letters, too.

Y1

  • is
  • love
  • me
  • my
  • no

Y2

  • school
  • she
  • so
  • some
  • the

  • to
  • today

For practising the list of spellings, we’d like you to use rainbow words. You might do each letter in a different colour or just each word in a different colour. If you’re feeling extravagant, have a go at this:

Y1

  • has
  • he
  • here
  • his
  • house

Y2

  • of
  • once
  • one
  • our
  • pull
  • push
  • put
  • said
  • saw
  • says

To challenge yourself, see if you can remember to use leading lines. In Year 2, we’re learning how to join some of our letters. If your child is feeling confident, encourage them to try and join their handwriting.

Y1

  • has
  • he
  • here
  • his
  • house

Y2

  • of
  • once
  • one
  • our
  • pull
