Spellings are given out on Mondays and are tested on the following Monday. The children will be split into three groups to help them to learn the spellings at the level for them. This will be determined based on a spelling age test completed at the start of the school year and progress will be assessed weekly. It is important that children learn their spellings but also then make the links when writing, by spelling them correctly out of a test situation.
***Weekly spellings can be found in your child's reading record and will also be displayed below. If you would like another printed copy then please do ask as I always have spares.***
Spellings for Monday 1st October
Group 1: - disappoint – distrust- disorder – unfasten – unhealthy – unfinished – shouldn’t – couldn’t – wouldn’t – they’re
Group 2: - disagree – disobey – dislike – unfair – unknown – unfold – doesn’t – we’re – there’s – won’t
Group 3: - wanted – other – food – away – more – say – magic – round – school – think
Children in year 3 and 4 are expected to learn a list of statutory spellings by the time they leave this year group. A selection of these will also be tested on each week. It is important that these are learnt alongside their weekly spellings.
