Spellings and CEW

Here are the CEW and the spelling patterns that children need to know and use correctly within their writing by the end of KS1 (Year 1 and Year 2).


Practice them using the ideas from your Homework Book (at the start) or any other fun activities (you can also find some ideas at the bottom of this page).


Use them in sentences. See how many words with the same spelling pattern you can use in one sentence, making sure the sentence still makes sense even if it is a silly sentence.


Use them to write mini stories. 


Look for them in your reading.

Use the words you find to write new sentences.
