New Spelling Strategy - Spring 2016

This term we are introducing a new strategy for teaching spellings.  The new National Curriculum has introduced an expected standard for spelling.  In order to aspire to these high standards we will be using, ‘Get Spelling’ by Oxford University Press.  In years two to six children will have a daily 15 minute lesson for spelling.  This scheme uses an online platform to engage pupils and introduce a spelling rule and this is then followed up through the rest of the week with a variety of activities.  Children will no longer be given a list of spellings to take home and learn for a test.  Teachers will send home information so you are aware what your child is learning.
