Bishop MonktonC of E Primary School


Owls will be given new spellings every Friday, with a spell check-up the following Friday. They will practice their spellings every day in School.


Owls Spelling Groups

Arctic Spellers and North Sea Spellers will have 5 spellings each week based on their phonic work with Little Wandle. The tricky words and sounds will be taught during the week and then they will have the spellings to practice on the Friday. 

Southern Ocean Spellers will have 10 spellings (5 and then a further 5 to challenge). These will be a range of common exception words from years 2, 3 and 4, and words with spelling patterns that we will explore in class. 


Please find below the common exception words for year 2 and years 3 and 4. You can support your child at home with regular practice of these words.
