We have now started the Year 2 Spelling Programme and below are some of the spellings we have and will be looking at this half term.


  1. Homophones - words which sound the same, but have different meanings and are spelt differently.

Why not have a think about different homophones you know eg. bee/be, flower/flour. How many words can you think of? Can you find out the meaning of them? Can you write the correct spelling in a sentence so that it makes sense? Have a look at this website for some games and ideas - https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zrx2dp3


2. Words with j/g/dge/ge.

How many different words do you know with this sound in? Can you find out how to spell them correctly? Play some games linking to this sound - https://wordwall.net/en-gb/community/alternative-j-sounds-matching-pairs-game-j-ge-g-dge


3. Silent letters - kn, gn

How many words can you think of that have this spelling pattern in? Can you write them into a sentence?
