Reading Comprehensions

The Stone Age



These are the common exception words that we hope the children can spell by the end of Year 4. We have included Y2-4 so that you can work with your children on spellings relevant to them. Words sent home for homework are linked to the no nonsense spellings, which is a spelling teaching structure that we use in school.


Remember to use a range of strategies;

Look Say Cover Write CHech (LSCWrCh)

Shape doodles

Post its around the house

Snap games

Missing letters

Mnemonics e.g. because = big elephants can't always use side exits

Rhythm e.g. difficulty = Mrs D Mrs I Mrs FFI Mrs C Mrs U Mrs LTY
