# Year 2 - Spelling Months and Days

This 'Spelling Months and Days' quiz is an addition to the spellings suggested in the National Curriculum. However, in school, it is expected that KS1 children should be able to correctly copy the months and by the end of Year 2 should be able to spell all the days of the week.

There are twelve months in a year and seven days in a week. Each month and day should be written with a capital letter. This quiz is going to test you on all the days and some months. See if you can get full marks!
