The teaching of discreet phonics underpins our spelling curriculum during EYFS and into Key Stage 1. Full coverage of the National Curriculum aims and objectives are delivered using the Spelling Shed Scheme of Work and accompanying online teaching resources.

In spelling lessons and at home children explore;

  • The origins of words, which can lead to certain patterns of spelling. (Orthology)
  • Words, parts of words; their meanings and how this affects spelling, such as root formations, prefixes and suffixes. (Morphology)
  • How English language has borrowed and integrated words and spellings from a range of languages. (Etymology)

Children receive an individual log in at the start of the new academic year with which they can access weekly spelling lists and fast paced, fun online games and activities which can be accessed in school and at home with your child's individual log in, given to them.

Children can compete against themselves and their peers to win points and move up class, school and national leader boards.
