Each week from now on, your child will have a specific sound focus that we have been working on in class. These will be on Spelling Shed each Friday. There will no longer be a list of 10 spellings to learn as in previous years. Instead, we will be assessing your child's ability to apply the sound/s for that week to a variety of words in a weekly assessment alongside their written English work. These will be any words that contain that sound.
In recent years we have found that children have learnt the words for a spelling test very well but then they are not consistently using them in their writing. This is why we have adopted this new approach.
We will no longer be sending common exception words to learn each week, however it is imperative that the children know how to read and spell these words off by heart. These lists can be found in the red home links books. We have already assessed your children on which words they can spell and we will be working on filling their gaps every day in class.
Thank you for your continued support, as we try our new approach. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.
Many Thanks,

Year 2 Staff
