Common Exception Words
It is the expectation that the children are able to read and spell their year group's common exception words correctly by the end of each year. They should also be able to read and spell the common exception words for the previous year groups. The reading and spelling of these words (in routine assessments and within the child's day to day reading and writing) form part of a teacher's assessment against the age related expectations.
We use the Spelling Shed scheme of work at SSMJ. This scheme is based on phonics, morphology and etymology and teaches the science behind spelling. The children are able to practise the words that they have been learning in school at home using the Spelling Shed App or website which gives access to a number of different games. Your child will have their own individual username and password.
