Year 1 Spelling

27 November 2015

Next week, all children will be taking part in our sponsored Spellathon! Each child in Key Stage 1 has been given 30 spellings which they have already been tested on throughout the year so far. On Friday 04 December, they’ll be tested on all 30… happy spelling!

It’s half-term…

…so there is no homework this week.

Please make sure your child spends some time most days reading – books, comics, newspapers… Why not visit the library or a book shop this week?

To support writing, your child should review their spellings from the last few weeks. You could test them on words from all the lists, and ask them to use the words in sentences or a story, or create a comic strip with a word used in each speech bubble.Perhaps you could set a challenge (for you as well as your child!) of using spelling words in everyday conversations! Practising handwriting by joining up is a useful activity, too.

In Maths, children in Key Stage 2 should definitely practise times tables – including the related division facts. Can your child respond within five seconds (not counting up to work it out) to questions like ‘What’s 7 times 8?’ and ‘What’s 42 divided by 6?’

Of course, make sure your child is happy and healthy over half-term, too! A walk and play at Roundhay Park, a bike ride, a conker challenge, a trip to the art gallery… Enjoy!

Children in Year 1 and Year 2 split into groups to learn phonics. There are three groups: Red Group (taught by Mrs Weekes), Yellow Group (taught by Mrs Wells) and Green Group (taught by Mr Wilks). Each week, your child will have a set of spellings in their Learning Lists which matches the phonics group they are in.

Below, are the spellings for each group. If you have any questions, please ask.

18.9.15 Green 18.9.15 Red 18.9.15 Yellow

11 September 2015

The spellings this week are the numbers one to ten.


This links to our work in maths this week. Common mistakes are writing the word two as tow and four as for. You might look at the corresponding tens numbers and see how the spelling changes or stays the same. Unfortunately, there are some frustrating differences. For example, four changes to forty and five to fifty.

The children will be tested on all ten spellings on Friday. If you have any questions, please ask.
