We follow a mastery approach to the teaching of spelling through the programme ‘Pathways to Spell’. from The Literacy Company. It is a programme designed to deliver the statutory content of the Primary National Curriculum for spelling in Key Stages 1 and 2 and which follows a review, explain, practise, apply and review model. Through weekly teaching of spelling objectives, exploring rules and using a variety of strategies to support spelling the programme aims to develop children as proficient spellers.
Spelling sessions take place daily across the whole school on a daily basis and skills learnt are reinforced and applied within all writing opportunities.
Please also take a look at the Phonics section of the website for information for Reception and Year 1.
