In class, we have two spelling groups. The children have been told their group and the homework/spelling sheet they bring home on a Friday matches the spellings they should be learning. If you want to clarify this with us, please email ([email protected] and [email protected])

Group 1 (This week, the spellings are based on the tricky words in Phase 4)

said

like

some

were

there

Group 2 (This week, the spellings are based on the tricky words in Phase 3)

he

she

we

me

be

her

The children will be tested on these words next Friday 11 December. When checking the spellings with your child, it is useful to put the word in a sentence so they understand its meaning. Look at the spelling activities guide on the website and in your child’s homework books for some ideas to practise these words. Making up silly sentences, using the words, would be a great way to practise spellings, handwriting and writing sentences!

You might also want to practice the words by drawing word shapes around the words to show the ascenders (letters that stick up high) and descenders (letters that go below the line).
