Spelling

We are on WEEK 2 of our work. Your child is learning how some words sound the same as another but are spelt differently or have a different meaning (homophones).

 

You can find this weeks spelling sheet as an image below, but also as a word document you can download and print out. If you can't print, just write the words out in your spelling books. 

 

Week 1
• Monday – Thursday: Week 1 spelling work consists of children practising these words (using a writing pencil), using the look cover write check method. They can also choose to practise them using one of the ‘fun ways to practise your spellings’ if they would like to.
• Friday: Test – ask someone at home to test you on all of the spelling words you have been practising. Reflect on any words you found tricky – make these words/rules your focus for next week.


Week 2
• Monday – Thursday: Week 2 spelling work consists of children including each word in a sentence then writing the sentences in their spelling book. They can also choose to practise them using one of the ‘fun ways to practise your spellings’ if they would like to.
