These spellings are taken from the Revised 2014 final version English National Curriculum for Year 2.  

The booklets contain 12 weekly spellings which use the Look, Say, Cover, Write, Check method. They are available in either print or a joined cursive style 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.

The slideshow shows examples from the Year 2 term 1 set 1 spelling booklet and activity booklet.
