We continually review the way we teach and give out spellings.
At St Oswald’s we teach spellings initially thorough phonics and then as discrete spelling and grammar lessons.
We progressively teach spellings using the specific spelling rules and the specific Spelling word lists for Years 1 and 2 and Years 3, 4, 5 and 6.
The word lists are statutory and they are a mixture of words which children use in their writing and which they often misspell.
