Your child will have a spelling focus each week. They will be given a list of ten words to practise and learn at home using the look, say, cover, write and check technique. These spelling words should be practised each night in preparation for a small spelling test on Friday. In addition to learning these given sets of words, children are also expected to practise and learn the Year 1 spelling words independently. A list of these words have been included in your child’s homework diary for you to share at home.
