Some of you might have guessed that Becca and I are still working. We will stop on Friday but here is tonight’s offering. Spelling in Yr2.
With the new curriculum we have come to realise that phase 6 (in Letters and Sounds) is probably no longer relevant. Our current advice is that Yr1 pupils need to secure phase 5 and then Yr2 need to start a spelling programme. And so with that in mind we have written a session by session plan. It starts off with daily spelling and moves in the summer term to spelling 5 times over a fortnight to come in to line with Yr3 and KS2. However, if your cohort is not great at spelling you might need to continue daily spelling all year and Yr3 might need to start with daily spelling in the first term and then reduce the amount.
We have updated the spelling pathway to include Yr2
