Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling

Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling

Spelling is a huge part of writing and all year groups access spelling programmes to help consistently improve the standard of spelling across the school. In Key Stage 1, we use the THRASS approach to teach phonics, and No Nonsense Spelling is taught in KS2. We pride ourselves in having spellings and handwriting as ‘non-negotiables’ across all subjects – not just English – so the children are applying spelling strategies across all subject areas. Spellings are not sent home each week as we have found this to be ineffective. Instead, great emphasis is placed daily on choosing the correct spellings and working out how to spell a word.
