Spelling

Support for Spelling (a Government initiative) is the backbone of our teaching of spelling throughout the school supplemented by the Babcock Spelling scheme in Years 2 - 6. Spelling is taught through an investigative approach and the children keep personal spelling lists of the words they misspell across the curriculum. Random spelling lists are not encouraged as the children do not tend to apply learned spellings to their own writing. We hope to foster a love of words, so children are inspired to always search for the best vocabulary choices to improve the quality of their writing.
