Year 1 Resources
The spellings in these booklets are taken from the Revised 2014 final version English National Curriculum for Year 1.
The booklets contain 12 weekly spellings which use the Look, Say, Cover, Write, Check method. They are available in a choice of print, a joined cursive or continuous cursive font to aid handwriting. The word puzzles are linked to each of the spellings and can be used as homework or extension activities for their reinforcement. Dictations are also available and can be used as either dictation exercises or spelling tests.
Schools may order the resources from here.
Spelling booklets, along with corresponding word puzzles and dictation sentences are also available for Infant, Junior and Primary Schools and may be ordered from this page.
The slides show examples from the Year 1 Term 1 Set 1 spellings, word activities and dictation.
