Every Thursday the Year One pupils take part in a spelling quiz.
As children’s writing develops, they are expected to use their phonic knowledge to attempt to spell a range of words, but also a range of common exception words. In order to help your child’s writing become more fluent and accurate we are going to introduce some weekly spelling quizzes in class. Each week these informal quizzes will check your child’s ability to spell these words independently.
We are sending some common exception words home for you to practise and these words will also be recapped at school. They are words the children were introduced to in Reception and will be familiar to them.
The spelling quizzes will happen every Thursday; each week they will need to practise spelling 10 words OR 5 words depending on which phonics group they attend.
