Spellings- Autumn Term (first half)

Image result for spellings

Below, you will find a list of the spellings that your child will be learning this half term. Please ensure that your child completes the 'learn, write, check' sheet which they will bring home each Monday. On the reverse of this sheet your child should write 10 sentences, each one containing one of the new spellings; once completed, the sheet should be returned to school for marking. The children will do an activity relating to their spellings during the week as part of their guided reading activities where their comprehension and spelling of each word will be checked (there will not be an official spelling test, but please feel free to test your child at home if you feel that this would help.)
