When assessing children's writing one of the strands we look at is correct spelling. With the introduction of the New Curriculum in 2014, a set of age-related expectations has been added for each Year Group with regard to spelling. The document below shows the spellings your child will need to be able to spell by the end of Year 6.
For the week leading up to and including SATs week, spellings will be practised in school, with additional time given to review the learning from the Read Write Inc Spelling programme that we have followed this year. If you would like additional spellings homework, please ask. Our regular system of spellings test will resume in week 1 of Summer 2.
