Spelling homework will be given out every Thursday. The words to focus on will be highlighted in yellow. Please make sure your child practises their spellings as they will have a spelling test each Monday. This test takes the form of a dictation. Once a set of words have been practised we will highlighted them in pink and the next set of words to practise will be in yellow. The pink words will continue to feature in each spelling test so they must be revised as well as the yellow words. At the end of each half term the focus words are used in our Spelling Bee. This is a competition to find the best spellers in Year One and certificates will be awarded to the top five spellers in the year group.
Please do not write the spellings in their blue home learning books. The spellings can be practised on a separate piece of paper and does not have to be handed into school.
