This year Year 2 will be continuing to follow the Read, Write Inc phonics and spelling programme. This will allow them to build on their phonics and spelling from Year 1. Each week the children will learn a new spelling rule and take part in daily activities at school to help them to learn this rule. Each child has a spelling log that they will use at home and school, each week they will fill in two sections to practise at home these are as follows-
Speed Spell - These are words that the children are not confident in spelling they will choose these words from previous weeks rules or from the red words.
Log and Learn - This section is for the children to choose 5 words each week that they find tricky for that rule.
The children will not be tested weekly on these words but I will be monitoring the spelling of them in their writing, and there is a half termly spelling test to assess their progress.
