Spellings

Each week, the children will be set spellings on Monday. There will be 2 groups of spellings which they will need to practice. Group one focuses on Year 1 spellings and spelling rules, group two focuses on Year 2 spellings and spelling rules. Please support your child with their spellings at home in preparation for their test on Fridays.
