At Seascale, we follow the 'No Nonsense' spelling scheme which covers all the spelling objectives from the national curriculum. This scheme covers rules, patterns and spelling strategies. Below are the spelling prompts we use in Key Stage 2 when writing. They include the key spelling patterns and rules from the No Nonsense spelling scheme for each year group.
In addition to this, children are required to know and use the words from the following word lists. The national curriculum breaks them down as follows:
Year 1 and 2 common exception words:
Year 3 and 4 spelling list
Year 5 and 6 Spelling list
At Seascale school we follow the Read Write Inc system for teaching our children to read and write.
Here is information which should help when you are working with your child on their reading and phonics.
