Once children are confident in their phonics, they progress to spelling. As in phonics, we group the children for spellings to enable every child to work at a level applicable to them and to allow them to reach their full potential.
We have daily spelling sessions which are 15 minutes long and we use a scheme called No Nonsense Spelling from Year 2 – Year 6. This scheme teaches spelling in a 'Little-but-often' structure which allows children to revisit and review, learn new strategies and apply. A variety of strategies are suggested so that children with different learning styles can find out what works well for them.
