Spelling helps with both reading and writing. Learning to spell helps to cement the connection between the letters and their sounds, and learning high-frequency “sight words” to mastery level improves both reading and writing.
Below are year group lists with half termly.
Please use every opportunity to learn these at home as well as at school.
Over the summer break, we are inviting you to get prepared for the Autumn Term Spelling Challenge. Each year group has a list of spellings to learn throughout the year and your class teachers will be emailing you your list. Lists can also be found on the school’s website.
Remember regular practise is key when you are learning to spell. Look at patterns as well as anomalies!
There will be a quiz early in the term where you will be tested on 25 words from the Autumn 1 list.
Try your best and good luck!
