Week 4 - Common Exception Words

Dear Parents and Carers of Year 4,

This week we have been focussing on using spelling strategies to help us learn the Year 4 Common Exception Words.

We believe in learning spellings in a practical, specific way, with research indicating that these strategies are much more powerful than traditional methods of learning spellings by rote. 


On Wednesday the children will be tested on the following common exception words:

  • caught
  • centre
  • century
  • certain
  • circle
  • complete
  • consider
  • continue
  • decide
  • describe
