In year 2, children will receive weekly spelling homework. This will be focussed around the pattern that they are learning at school that week. The spelling pattern is explicitly taught at school which they are then expected to practise it at home. The children will be given a task to help them to practise it. Tasks are varied to aid them to apply it to a variety of situations. Please see the link below for the year group spellings:
