In Key Stage One, children are taught spelling though their phonics lessons (see separate page). They are also taught to spell the Common Exception Words as specified in the National Curriculum. Children will have weekly spellings to practise at home.
As children move into Key Stage 2, they begin a structured programme of spelling lessons. We use Babcock No Nonsense Spelling which takes children through the spelling patterns and rules as specified in the National Curriculum.
Children in Key Stage 2 have weekly spelling to practise at home which will cover the spelling patterns and rules as well as the National Curriculum Spelling Lists for Lower Key Stage Two and Upper Key Stage 2.
