Home Learning

Knowledge Organisers

Year Group Spelling

Each week, your child will have a spelling lesson where they will learn a specific rule or pattern.  Each child has been assigned a spelling group and will be given a list of either 8, 10 or 12 spellings to learn. There will also be between 2 and 5 ‘bonus words’ to learn.

Should you wish to see an overview of all spelling patterns for the year, revise key patterns or refer to their current spellings, please see the attachments below and refer to the week and pattern in the home learning section above.

Please help your child to practice these in preparation for the test which will take place on a Monday in school.
