We use the Essential Spelling scheme to teach spelling. This begins in year 2, where the scheme builds on from Letters and Sounds phonics. Essential Spelling focuses on the teaching of spelling so that children understand how to apply patterns, strategies and knowledge to other words. It also provides links to prior knowledge and tracks back to related objectives so that teachers can give targeted support to children who are not yet able to spell words from their year group programme of study.
