The first key thing to know is that there are no specific spelling words that are required in year 2.
Instead, the requirement in year 2 is that children are introduced to some specific spelling rules, patterns and common exceptions and that they practice spelling age-appropriate words where these rules apply.
So an example of one of the rules required in year 2 is learning to spell words where the /r/ sound is spelt ‘wr’ at the beginning. Some examples of words that kids might learn to spell when introduced to this rule are: write, written, wrote, wrong, wrap.
Now a few of the spelling rules that must be covered in year two can apply to hundreds of different words that kids will need to read often.
Plenty of time is spent on understanding and practising using the following specific types of words:
Words ending in -tion
Common Exception Words
