In Reception, a phoneme is sent home regularly after it’s been taught in class, with a suggested activity for the children to apply their learning. In KS1 and KS2, at the beginning of every week, the spellings for the whole week are sent home. Each week’s spellings are practiced in class sessions and at home and are assessed regularly. On most occasions, children working at age-related expectations, should be learning all of the words. Spellings can be topic words, common exception words, words from the national curriculum spelling lists or words that follow a pattern or rule that the children have been learning.
