Children will be given weekly spelling homework each Friday, these words will contain Common exception words.
Children must revise these spellings daily in preparation for their weekly test and more importantly in order to accurately apply these words in their independent writing.
Children will be asked to choose 2 words from the list of 5, writing their own sentences. We would expect Year 1 children to create sentences that include rich but appropriate vocabulary as well as creative grammar techniques taught e.g. adjectives and conjunctions.
What day is the spelling test?
The spelling test will take place every Wednesday which has been incorporated in their phonics lesson.
