This year we are changing the way that we teach and assess spelling in school. For this reason, your child will no longer have weekly spellings to learn at home. Instead, we will teach spelling conventions regularly in school and revise these daily. Often success in weekly spelling tests did not translate into improved spelling in work and caused a lot of anxiety for parents and learners.
To support your child develop their spelling, please practise the common exception words below and make regular use of Doodle Spell to practise this key skill.
