National Curriculum Spelling

The new National Curriculum will be statutory for all year groups from September 2014 (except Year 2 and 6) and therefore MOST children in Y3-6 will be working on learning the spellings on the two lists available below.  

There will be work done in class and as expected spelling homework; this is in contrast to the other spelling lists available in Phase 6 and 7 of the 'home-learning support materials' section which are optional for home-learning.

The age range on these lists should be taken with a large pinch of salt, as each child will move at their own pace through the words.  Some Year 6 children may never secure the spelling of the words on the 'Lower Key Stage 2' list and so it is important to stay positive and just keep practising.  Ask your child's class teacher or Miss Morland if you need advice.  

Constant revision is needed to ensure consolidation and consistent application in writing.  Try to give the word within the context of a sentence - on the principle of little and often for practise - rather than as a 'spelling test'.
