To practise your spellings this week, have a go at rainbow writing. You might use a different colour for each word, a different colour for each letter in a word or even try something like this…

 

Y!:    grander     grandest     fresher     freshest      slower     slowest     quicker     quickest     smaller     smallest

 

Y2:   camel     tunnel     towel     squirrel     metal     pedal     capital     animal     hospital

Year 2:

This week’s spelling list includes a couple of spelling rules, wr making a ‘r’ sound and le making an ‘l’ sound. Notice that the wr usually appears at the beginning of words and le at the end.

This week, we’d like you to turn each spelling into a doodle word. They’re great for helping you to learn not only the spelling of words but also their meanings. Take a look at the example for monarchy.

 

Y1:

cats   dogs   rocks   trains   books   brushes   glasses   witches   boxes   buzzes

 

Y2:

race   city   space   fancy   ice   knock   knee   know   knitting   knife

Y1:

We’ve been working on plurals. Some words need just an ‘s’ but words ending in sh, s, ch, x or z need an ‘es’.

 

cats   dogs   rocks   trains   books   brushes   glasses   witches   boxes   buzzes

 

Y2:

This list focusses on two spelling rules that we’ve been working on. The first five words contain a ‘c’ making a ‘s’ sound and the last five words contain a silent ‘k’ before an ‘n’.

 

race   city   space   fancy   ice   knock   knee   know   knitting   knife

Y1:

think     bank     sunk     honk     wink     witch     fetch     catch     hutch     stitch

These words all contain the ‘nk’ digraph that we’ve been working on in our phonics lessons. Ask your child if they can spot the pattern that the digraph typically comes at the end of words.

Y2:

who     what     where     when     why     whole     wild     would     should     could

These words are from the common exception word list.  Many of them begin with the ‘wh’ digraph. The first five are words that are often used as question openers. Could, would, and should all contain the ‘ould’ ending. We say ‘O U Lucky Duck’ to help us remember this pattern.
