Spellings

This terms spellings are Year 1 Spellings Spring Term 2021

To practice please use the look, cover, write check sheets below.

 week 1  week 2  week 3  week 4   week 5   week 6

All our spellings in Year 1 are matched to the sounds Mrs Kowal has recorded below and later in the year they contain the red tricky word from the video below. We learn to read the words in school before we learn to spell them.

Below is a video of the phonemes that the children learn throughout Year 1

This video helps the children to think more about the tricky red words they have to read. The videos are separated into tricky words in Phases 2 and 3 and then another for tricky words in Phases 4 and 5. Some words in our language can’t be sounded out for reading and your child just has to know them. We tell the children in school “You can’t fred a red, you just have to know them.”

Phase 2 tricky words

Phase 3 tricky words

Phase 4 tricky words

Phase 5 tricky words
