Year 3/P4 Autumn Half Term 1 Test A Spelling rules and knowledge • Common exception words (revision)

Guidance for teachers The test is designed to build experience and confidence with this format, as well as to test children’s spelling knowledge. The test should take approximately 15 minutes. Children should have a copy of the test and a pencil to use. Children with specific needs should be given appropriate support. All children should be encouraged to have a go at spelling each word, using the strategies that they have learnt. Remind the children to check their answers by asking: Does it look right? Does it sound right? Avoid over-emphasising the spelling of each word as you read it. Read each word aloud, saying: The word is… Next, read the sentence that includes the word. Wait for the children to attempt to write the word. Re-read the word, saying: The word is… Remind the children to check the word before moving to the next spelling. At the end of the test, read each sentence again and encourage the children to check back.

Instructions for children (You may like to read this to the children prior to the test.) This is a spelling test to check your knowledge of the spelling patterns we have worked on this half term. You need a pencil. Please write your name, class and the date at the top of the test. I will read a word out loud and then say it again in a sentence. You should write the word in the gap in the sentence on your test. I will read it again and give you time to check it. Don’t worry if you are not sure about a spelling. Have a go using the strategies we have learnt. If you make a mistake, cross out the word and try again.

Words tested (20) were, they, our, climb, both, here, while, because, mind, only, was, your, pull, everybody, gold, there, some, even, child, clothes
