Spelling Patterns Yr 2

This is a list of some of the spelling patterns which the children learn in Year 2 with example words.  This list is not exhaustive of all the words the spelling pattern applies to.  


You may like to focus on a spelling pattern each week.  Allow your child to explore the pattern, can they identify any other words with this pattern?  Can they suggest a reason why a word ends in -le and not -el?  


Ideas on how to learn these spelling patterns:

  • Encourage your child to make a word search using the words.
  • Record the word on paper and cut it up, can they put it back together in the correct order? 
  • Use the words to practice their Kinetic Letters handwriting.
  • Write silly sentences using the words.
