Teaching of Spelling
As part of an initiative to improve spelling confidence across school, children from Years 2-6 will begin a new spelling programme from the week commencing 21st January. Read Write Inc Spelling is a fast-paced and systematic programme which has proven itself to be effective and popular in schools nationwide. As part of the programme children will have a daily 20 minute spelling lesson in which they will learn spelling patterns in a variety of interactive methods.
As we will be teaching spelling strategies on a daily basis through this programme and the RWI Phonics already established across KS1, we will no longer be sending spelling words home for the children to learn ready for a test in school. We will review this as the term progresses.

If you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact me at school.
Thank you for your support,
Mr Pinkham (Writing Lead)
