Spelling Strategies


Spelling is one of the essential components of successful writing. At St. Peter’s Catholic Primary School, we believe that teaching our children the various strategies, rules and concepts will enable them to grow their spelling and vocabulary knowledge, which will benefit them in all aspects of their English learning, as well as in their everyday life as a child and adult!

We launched a new strategy with our children, staff and parents in October, where we shared what spelling would look like in our school in Years 2 to 6. We shared key information about developing phonological awareness as well as what our learning would look like during the week. If you were unable to attend the meeting then you can watch the video below.

If you would like any other information, please do talk to your child’s class teacher, who can talk you through what spellings are covered in their year group and how you can support your child with the learning in spellings
