In both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2, the children are streamed for spelling. This is done in order to support all children at the appropriate level, no matter their current year group.
Children are grouped based upon their current attainment and how well the spellings that are set are being transferred into independent writing.
The spelling session happens every Friday morning 9-9.45am and consists of quality first teaching, ensuring that the focus is placed upon the teaching and learning of spelling rules rather than just the memorising of words. Teachers aim to make spelling fun and many of the activities are engaging and practical.
The spelling groups are fluid and children are able to move if progress is made.
A spelling meeting was held for parents on Thursday 26th January 2016. If you were unable to attend but would still like a copy of the handout provided, please just ask.
