Spelling

  • Each year group has a termly set of spellings assigned to them following the age related expectations from the 2014 National Curriculum. The full set for the term can be accessed via individual class pages.
  • Every week your child will have a spelling test on the Monday and new spellings are then assigned on the Wednesday.
  • The spelling test is recorded in the reading diary so you will be able to see which spellings were spelt correctly/ incorrectly.
  • High Frequency Words and Tricky words are tested from Reception on wards. They are taught within Phonics, Writing and Reading sessions by teachers and assessed every half term in order to track progress.
  • Those who struggle with spelling are included on a SMART intervention which is in class, Wave 3 or Precision teaching approach.
