We follow a mastery approach to the teaching of spelling through the programme ‘Pathways to Spell’. It is a programme designed to deliver the statutory content of the Primary National Curriculum for spelling in key stages 1 and 2. Through weekly teaching of spelling objectives and the development of a whole school approach to word transcription, vocabulary development and proofreading, the programme aims to develop children as proficient spellers.
You will find the end-of-year expectations for spelling for each of our year groups in the attached documents. For further detail on the skills that your children are learning on a weekly basis, please contact your child’s class teacher or Mrs Collison.
