Grammar and Spelling

Grammar and Spelling

SPaG is taught weekly in Years 1 – 6.

SPaG skills are also embedded within English lessons and in other subjects; allowing children to apply their learning in a wide range of other contexts.

In Reception and KS1, daily phonics is the key to the children’s learning of spelling. Phonics is taught using ‘Letters and Sounds’. Children are taught to blend sounds to read and to segment to spell. At the same time, they learn words which are not phonically regular (common exception words).

From Year two and into KS2 the children move towards using their phonic knowledge to help them to understand spelling rules and patterns. Children all receive weekly spellings and are tested weekly. 

Helping the children to understand how to use and apply known spelling patterns (and to develop strategies to tackle tricky words) is the key to helping them to become successful spellers.  We use the Purple Mash Spelling Scheme which enables children to practice their spellings at home, including using the online games in Purple Mash.  

When  writing, children are encouraged to apply their spelling skills from SPaG lessons into their writing in ALL subjects.

Our Values

We are guided and strengthened by our distinctively Christian values of Hope, Courage, Love, Thankfulness, Trust and Forgiveness. These values were chosen by our school community by reflecting deeply on the meaning of 6 key stories from the Bible. These values are nurtured and lived by all in our school community as we continue to learn and grow together.
