Spelling is developmental. It is a journey. At St Bernadette's we focus on Spellings every week with work on phonics, blends, word recognition, CVC words, high frequency words and patterns across the school. Children are taught weekly spelling strategies and this is consolidated in focused spelling lessons and activities throughout the week. Children are given a weekly spelling list of their words which are practised and applied in the activities across the week.
‘People learn about spelling in many different ways and they also remember how to spell words using a variety of methods and strategies.’
