Common Exception Words

As well as the Year 2 spelling programme of study, the children also need to be able to read and spell in their independent writing these frequently used words that are exceptions to the usual spelling rules.

Please follow the link to the list published by Twinkl. 

Autumn.  The season of mists and mellow fruitfulness.   

It's also the season that marks the start of the new school year... 

...and isn't it good to finally be back in school!

We have a busy term ahead of us, but most importantly it's all about the children getting back into the routine, meeting again with their friends and enjoying all the challenges and fun times that are part and parcel of the school day.
