Pupils learn a range of different spelling patterns set out in our Phonics and Spelling programmes. Alongside a structured programme of spelling patterns and rules we teach pupils to read and spell exception or tricky words in each year group.
Pupils are expected to learn particular spellings identified in their own work and from Year 2 keep an individual spelling record of words they need to learn to spell correctly.
Pupils are taught to be independent in practising their own ways to help them learn and remember new or tricky spellings. This guide and techniques are shared regularly.
