These PDF worksheets, covering ‘gn’ and ‘kn’ words, are an excellent way for children in Y2 to revise and practise these spelling patterns.

The worksheets include five different activities in which children look at spelling patterns, identify misspelt words and apply their spellings in context.

They can be used within lessons, as an assessment or as a homework task.

This primary resource is divided into five sections:

  • Tips
    Advice and examples on when this spelling pattern should be used

  • Use

  • Change

  • Apply

Pupils should be taught to spell by:

  • segmenting spoken words into phonemes and representing these by graphemes, spelling many correctly
  • learning new ways of spelling phonemes for which one or more spellings are already known, and learn some words with each spelling, including a few common homophones
  • learning to spell common exception words
  • learning to spell more words with contracted forms
  • learning the possessive apostrophe (singular) [for example, the girl’s book]
  • distinguishing between homophones and near-homophones

add suffixes to spell longer words, including –ment, –ness, –ful, –less, –ly
apply spelling rules and guidance, as listed in English Appendix 1
