Teaching of Spelling

18/01/2019

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.

The following link provides further information about the spelling programme:

If you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact me at school.

Thank you for your support,

Mr Pinkham (Writing Lead)
