Spellling is taught using the Spelling Shed scheme. This starts in the Summer term of Year 1 and progresses through to Year 6. The scheme has been created following key National Curriculum objectives and will take children through the statutory and non-statutory spelling lists in each age phase.
It is a whole-school scheme of work for spelling which gives 100% coverage of the National Curriculum including all statutory words and spelling rules. The scheme is broken up into a weekly progression with a Spelling Shed list for each week. Lessons teach the children about spelling rules, etymology (word origins) and word definitions. Phonics skills are also applied and consolidated to help children learn their spellings with fun activities.
Your child will be given an individual Spelling Shed login in order to play fun games which practise their weekly spelling list. Children can choose games at different levels of difficulty depending on their confidence. Teachers can monitor use at home and celebrate achievements. Please contact your class teacher if your do not know your child's login.
Spelling tests each week include dictations to help consolidate previous spellings and punctuation skills.
