English/Spellings

Please find Autumn 1 spelling pamphlets below; children are either in Spelling group 1 or 2 and the front covers are labelled as such.

Remember to pre-test, focus on any unknown words then retest until scoring full marks! If you score full marks first time round, can you learn the meanings and write a variety of sentences using the words in context? Maybe have a go at some words from the other pamphlet if you are scoring full marks on your usual list!
