I am sorry, but have just read the yr 3 spelling thread and thought how useful if I could get hold of the same list for year 2.
If anyone could help I would be most grateful.
Many thanks.

Talk to your school as many will no longer be using this list. The NLS has been revised and as many schools are now following a system of synthetic phonics teaching many of these words are obsolete (decodable using phonic knowledge) Our school has replaced them with a list of 'tricky words' high freqency words which do not 'work' phonetically.

Hope this helps

My DS's school uses Jolly Spelling, which is far from 'jolly' as it includes some ridiculously hard words. The guideline words seem a lot more sensible. Agree with rapunzelle, check with your school.
