Spelling is a hugely important part of the Writing curriculum, and it is vital that children can apply their knowledge of spelling across all of their independent writing. 

Click on the links below to see the National Curriculum spelling expectations for Years 3 and 4 and Years 5 and 6. 

At the beginning of term, all children were assessed on spellings that they are expected to know by the time they reach Year 5. Each child will be assigned a personalised list of words that they do not yet know. Please support your child to practise these words so that they become confident to spell them correctly within the context of a sentence. 

Children will be tested on a Friday. If they still do not get these words correct, then they may be assigned that word again.
