Spelling is an integral part of the writing process. Pupils who spell with ease are able to concentrate on the content of their writing. With this in mind, we carry on with the letters and sounds programme on a daily basis in Year 1.
Spelling lists will be given out on Mondays and will be linked to the sounds being taught that week, or a list of frequently used words. Sometimes the list will link to the class topic.
This week’s list is words the children encountered in Reception and will need in their day to day writing.
Hint: Practice little and often works best.
