Prior to Y2, spelling is taught through the Letters and Sounds phonics programme. (see teaching of phonics)
Hodge Hill’s approach to spelling has been developed in accordance with the National Curriculum. Following the No Nonsense Spelling Programme, pupils from Y2-Y6 are taught the spelling rules for their phase as well as commonly occuring words for their year group. Pupils have opportunities to revise and recap on previously taught rules. Pupils will have words to practice at home - these will focus on the spelling pattern for the week and may include some words from their year group list. There is no weekly spelling test, however, pupils are expected to use the patterns and vocabulary studied within their independent writing.
