In Y2/Y3, phase 6 of Letters and Sounds focuses on the introduction of the spelling rules. Following on from this, spellings will be taught across KS2 with children of similar abilities being grouped together, following the No Nonsense Spelling Programme. The focus for these sessions is to review, teach, practise and apply taught spelling patterns in a fun and creative way. Spellings are taught in a discrete 15minute session 3 times per week. To support pupils’ spelling at home, children can access software called ‘Spellodrome’ and practise their spellings through fun, interactive games. Teachers set spellings for groups of children by ability, and word lists are only added to Spellodrome by teachers after children have been explicitly taught the patterns or spelling rules in class.
