Our aim is to ensure the children use the spellings they have learnt, in their everyday writing, confidently.
Children are tested weekly on 10-12 spellings which focus on a particular alternative spelling/suffix/prefix.
Spellings for the term:
television treasure usual pleasure measure leisure casual unusual supervision division
station fiction nation celebration friction section attention mention contraction infection
excitement joyful useless careful enjoyment careless playful payment penniless statement
straight strange weight height eight eighth accident actual
heard earth early learn surprise favourite hour natural
Choosing 20 random spellings from the Year 2 common exception words that we have been learning all year round.
Children in Year 2 are expected to be able to read and spell these common exception words, fluently by the end of the year.
They have opportunities to use and practise them in school daily and are tested termly on them, at random.
