Spellings remains a focus at Barnham and children are taught spellings according to the rules and words contained in Appendix 1 of the English National Curriculum.
Teachers use Spelling Shed to support their teaching and to provide activities that link to the weekly spellings. Children are given spellings to practise each week.
Through marking, teachers and TAs will identify at least three spellings that children have spelt incorrectly (from within that child’s known ability) and write these in their books for the children to practise.
Children are encouraged to identify incorrect spellings in their own writing and correct them with the use of aids, such as dictionaries and spelling word mats.
