Objectives 6 objectives to be covered each year 2 objectives each term 1 objective each half term Plus misconceptions and errors
Differentiation Phonic / spelling sessions in phases Year 5 & 6 + TA Phase 5 & 6 Year 3 & 4 + TA Phase 3 & 5
Spelling in KS2 Builds on spelling vocabulary Recognising how these principles apply to each word, in order to learn to spell words Practising and assessing spelling Applying spelling strategies and proofreading Building pupil’s self image as spellers.
Spelling in KS2- balanced programme Phonemic Knowledge Phonics (Letter sound correspondence) Spelling patters and conventions (how consonant doubles after a short vowel) Homophones (common pronunciations but different spellings) Phonological knowledge (syllables and rhymes / analogy)
