Year 1 Spelling

It’s half-term…

Posted on Saturday 26 October 2013 by Mr Roundtree

…so no specific homework, spellings or tables this week.  It’s a good time to relax and enjoy some time with your children – have you visited the free exhibition of Anthony Browne pictures at Leeds City Museum, for example?

Here are this week’s spellings; please remember to make sure that your child learns the correct spellings.

These spellings will be tested on Friday 27 September.

When you are practising the spellings, try and make it as fun as possible so that the children remember them: eg you can use magnetic letters, write the spellings in shaving foam or flour, ask your child to test you and then let them mark them or write the words on cards and play snap.  If you need any support then please come and ask.

If you are familiar with how we have done spellings in KS1 previously, then you will see that we are trying something different this year.

All the children in Y1 and Y2 have been mixed up depending on their phonic knowledge.  There is a daily phonics lesson, ensuring a secure knowledge which can be applied in writing and reading.

There are three groups: red, yellow and green.  The children know which group they are in and there is a coloured sticker on the front of their learning list book.  You will notice that the spellings below are grouped in these colours so please make sure you know which list you should be learning with your child.  The spellings are linked with previous learning.

All spellings will be tested on Friday 20 September.

If you have any questions please come and ask.
