In Early Years and KS1, spelling is embedded within phonics lessons, as well as taught discretely in three Spelling & Handwriting lessons per week. Additionally, the children learn spelling patterns and rules through high quality texts during their English lessons. In KS2 we have introduced 'Spelling Pathways’ where the children are taught different spelling patterns and rules weekly. These are modelled through common words related to each spelling pattern, with the children then having to apply the spelling rules to known words. These words are sent home as homework each week. The following Friday, we practise the week's words in a collaborative spelling quiz in small groups. Common exception words are also identified and explored.
