At the beginning of the year, we assessed the children's spelling of the Year 1 Common Exception Words.

Please check your child's homework folder to see which words your child needs to practise.

Tips for Practising Spelling

  • Look, Cover, Write, Check- Look at the word for a few seconds, can they write it once it is covered? Check if its right.

  • Count the letters, syllables, consonants, vowels in the word.

  • Put the word into a sentence.

  • Display the word in different places, on the fridge, on bedroom walls, in the car.

  • Write it ten times a day.
