This little box has 30 cards that cover all of the main spelling requirements and targets for Year 1. As we all know, English spellings can be notoriously difficult. Words that sound the same such as ‘wait’ and ‘weight’ are spelt differently, and words that are spelt similarly such as ‘rough’ and ‘through’ are pronounced differently. There are some rules that can help guide us on how to spell groups of words and perhaps why they are spelt that way, but there are also quite a lot of exception words that simply don’t follow the rules and need to be learnt by heart. The more your children practise and the more they read, the more they will become familiar with spellings. It’s also worth remembering that in reception and Year 1 children are generally taught to write phonetically, i.e. have a go at writing words as they hear them. If your child writes ‘choklut’ instead of ‘chocolate’ try not to worry too much. It’s important at this stage that they write down words as they hear them, and spellings will follow later.
