As part of the new National Curriculum children are expected to learn compulsory lists of spellings. These words are ones which are used a lot or may be tricky to spell. It is expected that all children will be able to spell these words by the time they leave Norfolk Community Primary School.
In addition there are two sets of high frequency words which are taught in KS1. By the beginning of Year 3 all children should be able to spell the words on these lists.
We are teaching the Y3/4/5/6 lists through our regular spelling, punctuation and grammar lessons. These words can now be viewed using the links below. We hope this will give you a clear understanding of what we expect in terms of progress and achievement in spelling through KS2.
We use the Spelling Shed scheme to plan spelling lessons. This also includes online games for the children to practise their spellings at home.
