We are now using a new spelling programme which means that children will no longer be bringing home spelling lists to learn.
Instead, we will focus on key phonemes/graphemes every fortnight with a Spell-it-Out list of fifteen words.
Children will also have a individual set of spellings called My Focus Five.
These will be five misspelled words idendified in their independent writing.
The first set of Spell-it-Out words are available below.
These are not words to be learned, but rather words to be explored.
For example, if I know the ie grapheme in achieve, I can also spell the words: field, shield, wield...
By exploring these fifteen words over two weeks in school, children become word detectives and build up their spelling skills and knowledge.
