Extra Learning at Home

Spellings

 

Every child had their spellings for Spring 1 sent home with them on Monday 8th January. Your child will be in either group A, B and C and will need to learn the spellings for that group each week. The spelling test will be every Thursday. In order to ensure progress, children who are not scoring 8 or above (3 for group C) will need to come back on Friday break time and redo the test. If your child has lost their spelling sheet, please see the link below or ask a class teacher. 

 

 

Spellings - Groups A, B and C

Times Tables

 

We do Times Table Rock Stars three times a week in Year 2. This half term the children will be tested on their 2 times tables! Please make sure they are learning these at home!

Common Exception Words

 

It is really important that your children can spell these common exception words in their writing consistently. We do send these out weekly as their spellings but any extra work you can do at home to help your children remember will only help.

 

Suffixes

 

In year 2, pupils move towards more word-specific knowledge of spelling, including homophones.

 

The process of spelling should be emphasised: that is, that spelling involves segmenting spoken words into phonemes and then representing all the phonemes by graphemes in the right order.

 

At this stage children’s spelling should be phonically plausible, even if not always correct.  

 

Pupils should be encouraged to apply their knowledge of suffixes from their word reading to their spelling (-ed    –est   -ing  -er   -ful)

 

For example, adding -ed to past tense verbs:

jumped (DO NOTHING rule: there is a short vowel,but 2 letters after it, so we can just add the suffix)

stopped (DOUBLE UP rule: there is a short vowel followed by only one letter, so we double the last consonant/letter and then add -ed)

danced (DROP E rule-  the root word ends in e so we drop this and then add -ed)

tried (the root word ends in a y so the rule is- drop the y change it to an 'i' and then add -ed)


Adding –er and –est to make comparisons. These suffixes also follow the rules above.

 

Big > bigger > biggest

Small > smaller > smallest

The National Curriculum states: Once pupils have learnt more than one way of spelling particular sounds, choosing the right letter or letters depends on their either having made a conscious effort to learn the words or having absorbed them less consciously through their reading. 

 

We have added below the web address for the sample SATs paper for GPS.
