All year 2 children have to learn the meanings and the spellings of the following word list below.

By the end of the year your child should be able to spell each word, explain what each word means and be able to produce Y2 standard sentences containing each of the words. Children will need to be able to spell aloud using capital letter names.

We will be practicing these spellings in class and they will make up part of our weekly homework too. Each half term we will be working on a new list and revising the previous half terms.
