“Spelling is important because it helps us communicate effectively and avoid misunderstandings.”


Our vision for spelling

By the end of Key Stage 1, children will make good attempts at unknown words using their phonics knowledge and understand that learning from mistakes is important.

By the end of Key Stage 2, children will be able to develop their spelling knowledge and improve their accuracy by learning a range of strategies that they employ precisely.
