All children in Year 2 will have a red spelling book. Every Friday, they will be given a word list to learn which directly link to the spelling rule that they are learning in their Read, Write, Inc. Spelling lessons. This list will be stuck in the front of their red spelling book. The children will bring their spelling book home to practice their spellings. They should bring their spelling book in the following Friday, where they will complete their spelling check in the back of their book.
Please find the Key Stage 1 common exception words list. These come directly from the spelling primary curriculum and include words that the children have to read and spell by the end of year 2. Most of the words are words that are not phonetically regular.
