Spellings, grammar and punctuation

(updated Sept.2023)


This year we are moving away from weekly spelling lists and tests. Research suggests that most pupils do not benefit from weekly tests as they do not transfer their knowledge used in tests to their writing. At home, we would like you encourage your child to select activities from the Autumn spelling menu to help practise and memorise the statutory words, which can be found on the ‘Spelling Spies' card. We suggest focusing on between 5 and 10 words each week.  Over the term, your child may also bring home some target words to practise that they have identified through our daily lessons and their writing.As always, we will regularly assess spellings to help identify areas of need along with giving children time to take ownership of their own spelling errors through proofreading or practising words from personal spelling logs.
