Spell all 100 common words
Throughout Year 1 & Year 2 children are expected to learn how to spell the first 100 words which are commonly used in reading and writing.
Some of these do not follow the normal phonic rules and are known as 'tricky' words. Here there is no trick to learning to spell these words they just have to know.
Print off this check list of the first 100 words your child should learn to spell.

Plurals adding s or es

With most nouns just add an s to the end of the word.
