Helping your child with Spelling

Are you aware of the importance of your child's spelling in the new curriculum?

Spelling has never played a more important role. 


At both key stage 1 and key stage 2, children are assessed on their spelling not only in the Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar Test, but also as a key factor in their writing. 

In school, we are working hard to help your children to learn more about words in lots of ways:

  • spelling rules;
  • strategies to help them remember words/ patterns;
  • playing games - learning through repetition;
  • online games;
  • applying spelling in their writing.
