Children will continue to get the opportunity this year to demonstrate their knowledge of spelling high frequency words in Year 2. Children will be awarded certificates for the relevant phase if they score 100% in an assessment quiz in class.

You can support your child's progress through these spelling levels by downloading the phase word grids and practising the words they find tricky at home. Please follow the link below.
