Spellings

 

Please find in my "Handy Hints" section some recommendations of how to learn spellings.  Your child may like to learn using one of the suggested ways you will find here.  I will talk to the children about this in class too.

SPELLINGS SUMMER 1

 

Week commencing 25th April (to be tested on Tuesday 3rd May)

 

I have not tested the children on the spellings from before half term so have moved these forward to this week's homework.  PLEASE SEE ENGLISH HOMEWORK SECTION ON HOW TO COMPLETE LEARNING THESE. 

Week 2 – W/C 2nd May (to be tested on Tuesday 10th May)

 

Please find this week's spellings below.  Remember you can learn these in the way that suits you and do not have to follow the write, cover and check method.

Week 3 – W/C 9th May (to be tested on Tuesday 17th May)

 

Please find this week's spellings below.  Remember you can learn these in the way that suits you and do not have to follow the write, cover and check method.

 

This week, I am making a start on the Year 3/4 statutory spellings.  I know the Year 4 teachers will go over these in Year 4 too but feel if we can make a decent start on these in Year 3 that hopefully the children will recall some of these next year.

Week 4 – W/C 16th May (to be tested on Tuesday 24th May)

 

Please find this week's spellings below.  These are a continuation of the Year 3/4 spellings we started last week.  This week’s English homework relates to this.

Week 5 – W/C 23rd May (to be tested on Tuesday 14th June)

 

Please find this week's spellings below.  These are a continuation of the Year 3/4 spellings.

Week 6 – W/C 13th June (to be tested on Tuesday 21st June)

 

Please find this week's spellings below.  These are a continuation of the Year 3/4 spellings.

SPELLINGS - SPRING 1

 

Week 1 - W/C 10th January (to be tested on Tuesday 18th January)

 

Please find this week's spellings below. 

Week 2 - W/C 17th January (to be tested on Tuesday 25th January)

 

Please find this week's spellings below. 

 

I am now moving onto the Year 3 spelling patterns/statutory spellings in order to start moving on as we have now covered many of the patterns/tricky words from Year 2 that the children hadn't quite got yet.  Some of the children still really need to think about these tricky words and patterns carefully in their work, especially with some of the tricky spellings or suffixes such as "ed" where they are still perhaps not following the rules so please ensure they are thinking about their spellings carefully at home too.

Week 3 - W/C 24th January (to be tested on Tuesday 1st February)

 

Remember for your spellings, you can learn these in whatever way suits you - you can always take a look on my Handy Hints section about ways to learn spellings.  I appreciate we are all different so am happy if you want to time yourself for example.

SPELLINGS - AUTUMN 2

 

I will be continuing with some of the patterns/spellings from Year 2 this half-term as I feel these still need to be cemented before trying to move on.  This is true of all the children.

 

I have put the Year 3 and 4 statutory spellings at the bottom of this page for your reference.  I am not asking your child to learn these yet but you may wish to look at them.  We will move onto these and the Year 3 spelling patterns in due course. 

Spellings w/c 1st November. To be quizzed on Tuesday 9th November.

 

Please find this week's spellings below with an explanation.  Thank you! yes

Adding ing suffix

Spellings w/c 8th November. To be quizzed on Tuesday 16th November.

Homophones and near homophones

 

Spellings Week 8

Spellings w/c 15th November. To be quizzed on Tuesday 23rd November.

 

Please find this week's spellings below with an explanation.  Thank you! yes

 

Homophones continued...

 

 

This week (if you wanted to) you could write some sentences out with the homophones in them in order to show you understand the meaning of the word.  If you do this, please aim to make your sentences as interesting as you can!  I find it easier to do on a theme, so you might want to write your sentences about Spuddy for example.

 

Examples:

When Spuddy was roller-skating, he flew down the hill and landed in a pile of mud!

Once the silly spud had eaten his banana, he slipped on its skin!

 

Spellings w/c 22nd November. To be quizzed on Tuesday 30th November.

 

Please find this week's spellings below with an explanation.  Thank you! 

 

Comparatives and Superlatives

Spellings w/c 29th November. To be quizzed on Tuesday 7th December.

 

I would like you to use this week as a consolidation of the spellings we have looked at so far perhaps focussing on some of the spellings you found trickier to learn.  I will quiz you on a random selection next week to see what we can remember so far.

SPELLINGS - AUTUMN 1

Spellings to learn - w/c 13th Sept (to be quizzed on Tues 21st Sept).

 

I will let you know what group your child is on on Monday 13th September.  This is subject to change depending on how I feel they are going on.  I will be starting with a lot of spelling patterns and words from Year 2 as I feel we need to secure these before moving on.

Tricky words

Spellings w/c 20th September.  To be quizzed on Tuesday 28th September.

 

This week, we will continue to power our way through the tricky words from Year 2.  We are already thinking of different ways to help us remember different words in class, such as the number eight the other day – eggs in giant hippo’s tummy!  For the number seven, we said even though it is odd it has got even at the end. As I said, you may read some of the tricky words as they are written to help you remember.

 

You can practise your spellings in whatever way you wish again this week.  You may time yourself as you did last week.  I do not mind how you learn as we need to make this as fun and memorable as possible!

Tricky Words 2

Spellings w/c 27th September. To be quizzed on Tuesday 5th October.

 

Well done to the children (and parents!) who are really working hard on spellings. I know some of you may find spellings tricky but I really appreciate your efforts!

 

It is essential (like times tables) that you make the effort to learn these.

 

Please find some more tricky spellings attached to work your way through! 😊
