Spelling in Ocelots

As well as revising phonics and spelling rules from year 1, we will also be learning new spelling rules for year 2. There are also new common exception words for year 2 that do not follow spelling rules and children will need to learn these separately. 
 
We will learn and practise the spelling rules in class. Sometimes these will form part of the weekly homework. 
 
The common exception words will be set as weekly spellings for children to practise using 'Look, Cover, Say, Write, Check' sheets. If, after practising, your child would like to use the spellings in a sentence, this can be completed in homework books.
 
A blank practice sheet has been uploaded here and spellings will also be listed weekly in case the sheet that is sent home goes missing. A full list of the Year 2 words has also been uploaded.
