Hodge Hill Primary School

Learning Together for Life

Our next Teacher Training Day will be Friday, 16th February 2018. School will close at normal time on Thursday 15th February and children will be back after half term on Monday 26th February 2018. Thursday 1st March is World Book Day - children please come dressed as your favourite book character.


Hodge Hill’s approach to spelling has been developed in accordance with the National Curriculum. Spelling rules from the National Curriculum are taught to each group during daily sessions; the spelling guidance outlines which rules will be taught each week. As well as new spelling rules, common exception words are also taught and pupils have opportunities to revise and recap on previous rules. There is an expectation that pupils use their spellings in their independent writing and pupils are given opportunities to do this after rules/words have been taught. 

How can Parents help their children learning their spellings?
