Year 2 Spelling Contract

Date: 16th Sep 2020 @ 9:27am

Dear Parents/Carers,

We are sending home the first set of spellings. In Year 2 we practise our spellings in the form of a ‘Spellings Contract’ where the children can practise these spellings through different activities. Each activity is worth points (see listed amounts) and then we have a spelling quiz on a Friday (also worth points).

The aim is for the children to earn 50 or more points by the end of the week by carrying out these activities. It is very achievable because 2 activities are worth 20 points – we often point out to do these first! We encourage children to do them little and often so they build up the repetition of doing each spelling. They have lots of opportunities during our school day.

We have Spelling Contract Books in school where the children record their activities. Usually (before Corona!), children could do some at home on paper and bring them in to add to their points. Unfortunately, we can’t accept any papers back in school for the moment so we will just be using the ‘in school’ activities as points. However, this doesn’t mean you can’t practise and do some activities with your child. We encourage it!

We will send the new spelling list out on a Friday – so you will get next week’s, this Friday.

Thank you for your support.

Miss Laycock and Mrs Whitehead
