Spelling is taught daily in Reception and Key Stage 1 as part of phonics lessons. It continues to be taught frequently in Key Stage 2.
Spelling rules and patterns are investigated, taught and practised alongside with ‘exception words’ (words which are exceptions to a specific rule or pattern). Common words and a range of strategies that can be used to practise spellings are also taught.
Lists of words that fit a particular pattern or rule learnt in class that week are sent home week for children to learn. We also have a number of spelling/phonic interventions in place to support children who find spelling challenging.
