Writing and Spelling

Children write every day through their main topic and in other subjects. The children are taught to join their handwriting from Nursery beginning with a cursive print to make the process easier.  We have adopted the ‘Crystal Challenge’ for spellings. Children have set spellings they need to learn in each year group.

These are practised every week and checked once a week. When children have demonstrated they know the spelling for their year group they get a badge to represent a different crystal for each year.  

For struggling spellers we use ‘Spelling Zappers’ which are a more personalised approach to learning spellings that individual children find tricky and are based on the high frequency words.

Excellence for every child every day
