Help Your Kid Ace The Next Spelling Test

This week we would like you to continue practising your Common Exception words from Year 2.

These words will be tested on Friday 25th September.

The following words are from the list of common exception words from Year 2, which we are revising at the beginning of Year 3.  They are listed in alphabetical order and not level of difficulty and do not follow a particular spelling rule or pattern.

Please help your child revise and learn each spelling.  Read the words together, point out any unusual sounds or letter patterns; discuss the meaning of the words.

Use the first column to copy the given word. 

Once the words are copied, cover them and see if your child can remember how to spell the word without looking.

Use the third column to correct any mistakes or to test the words again.

Your words this week are:













Once you have practised the spellings and you are feeling confident, try the quiz that has been set as a ToDo on Purple Mash.
