In Class 2, the children are given spellings to learn that link to the spelling units that we cover in class. Generally speaking, these occur in two to three week blocks. At the end of the block, I test the children in class to see which spellings to set them for homework. The children are then given a laminated bookmark with the spelling focus and a list of spellings for them to learn. They usually have around two weeks to practise. The test date is always printed at the top of the bookmark, along with their scores from the previous test.
