Phonics  / spelling

Accurate spelling is essential for children to attain the expected level for a year 2 child.

This half term we will recap the Phase 5  spellings that were learned in Year 1.  We will assess spelling  very quickly and provide additional support for any child who  requires more practise.

There are a range of web sites that can support children needing to practise Phase 3 and 5 words . Foam phonemes is a great place to start.

Click on the letter or group of letters , watch them fire out of the cannon and catch them. If you have several letters together and click on them you can almost hear the web site blending the word together.

e.g. counting from 27 - 34 and back

Children will practise recall of number bonds and number facts that were learned in Year 1 and continue to practise place value .
