English - Spelling
As part of our Curriculum recovery plans, we have thoroughly analysed gaps in children’s knowledge and skills. Alongside children’s writing stamina across the school being a priority, it is evident that as a school we need to refocus upon spelling and in particular the acquisition of spelling rules and exceptions. Furthermore, we want children to apply their spelling knowledge across the curriculum. Consequently, we are investing in fresh resources.
This term we have introduced a new spelling scheme - No-nonsense spelling. We recognise that spelling can often be an area of the English curriculum that children can struggle with, but have already seen some real progress in spelling for children since introducing the new scheme.
