Year 1 Spelling

01 July 2016

As you know, we have had to close school on Friday 01 July – Shadwell Lane had its water turned off.  For that reason, and because two classes are out of school today, there hasn’t been chance to set homework or spellings for this week.

Even though there is no set homework or spellings, please remember there are lots of things that the children can be doing to reflect on their learning from this week.

Again, I would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused by the school closure.

Red and yellow group:

These are more words where phonics doesn’t help a whole lot to spell them. Please help your child to hear and understand the difference between where and were.

Green group:
I will ask you any ten spellings of the days of the week and the months of the year.

10 June 2016

Yellow and Red group: I have chosen eight ‘common exception words’ as your spellings this week. These are words which don’t follow the usual rules of phonics.


Green group:  I will be asking you any ten words from the following list of ‘common exception words’.

Summer Half Term

In line with our Homework Policy, there are no homework tasks or spellings to learn next week because it’s the Summer half-term holiday. Of course, there are plenty of ways to help your child continue learning: get reading, go places, talk lots!

Have a happy and healthy holiday.
