Spellings will still be tested on a Monday but will be taught each day in school to further support the children in their understanding of the rules and patterns. 3 words from the Year 1 & 2 Common Exception Word List will also be tested on a Monday. These words will be chosen each week from the writing done in class.

Please note that most of the children in the class will be now following the spellings below, unless they are given other spellings on a Monday to take home.
