This week, the spellings are based on some of the sounds we have been recapping in phonics.
The children will be tested on these words next Friday 02 October.
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 for some ideas to practise these words. The guide can also be found in your child’s homework book.
