Spellings and Homework

Click here for our new maths challenges.

During the Autumn term, we will be concentrating on the Year 2 spelling patterns. These are quite tricky and I recommend that as well as working on these rules in class that your child practises for 5-10 minutes each evening. 

Below you will see the list of all the spelling rules and the words the children will be tested on for the next few weeks. The date shown is the date your child will be given these spellings to learn for that week.
