Year 2 Spelling Hub

This page is for ideas and resources to help children in Year 2 practise their spellings at home.

There will be wordsearches and helpful hints. Wordsearches and other resources can be printed, or if this isn’t possible, paper copies will be available from Mrs Sloss.

If your child completes a wordsearch or another printed resource they are welcome to bring it to show Mrs Sloss in the library and get a ‘spelling’ sticker.

This allows the brain to process and can therefore recall the word.’ So an idea is to write the word on a piece of coloured card and your child holds it up above his head.

The first is a ‘Say it, make it, spell it’ board, which you can print and maybe laminate. You write the word at the top, your child says the word, then they can make … Read more
