Spelling

All children in KS1 and 2 are taught spellings in daily 15 minute sessions. Each day, the rule is recapped and children complete a range of activities to help re-enforce their knowledge of the words and rules. Activites include: games, finding dictionary definitions, self and peer testing and exploring etymology.  All sessions finish with a dictation activity. New spelling lists for the following week are distributed on Fridays and tested a week later. Positive rewards are used to encourage home learning and to recognise hard work. Please see your child's teacher if you would like further information regarding personal spellings.
