Spelling at MJS
The school currently uses The Spelling Shed programme to support the delivery of the objectives in Curriculum 2014. For the majority of children, spelling lessons take place in class groups. The children receive two spelling sessions a week in addition to a weekly test. The children take home a spelling list to learn and have the option of using the online Spelling Shed games to practise.
Some children may require further revision of the phonics work completed in KS1, to reinforce key areas and phonic understanding, and also revision of high frequency words. Material from the Letters and Sounds document may be used alongside specific support programmes to generate appropriate spelling lists.
