Year 2 Common Exception Words
These are the words that the children are expected to know how to spell by the end of the year.
How you can help your child at home
There are lots of ways you can support your child at home:
- Practise spelling common exception words in lots of fun ways and applying them in sentences.
- Read with your child daily, asking them challenging questions about their reading.
- Practise recalling number facts including 2,3,5 and 10 times tables.
- Practice writing with your child - it could be something you have done at the weekend or something that they are interested in. Remind them of capital letters, full stops, finger spaces. Encourage them to try and improve their sentences, for example replacing the word happy for ecstatic or adding the correct punctuation.
