English Learning - Spelling


At Marlborough, we follow the National Curriculum statutory requirements and spelling lists for each year group. Each child has access to ‘Spelling Shed’ where they can play interactive games and practise their spellings online. Spelling games and dictations are used in class to support the learning of spelling families and investigations so that children build an understanding of spelling patterns through individual, group and whole class learning. Children are given a weekly list of spellings which follows a pattern.  From y2 upwards, each class has a weekly ‘quiz’ where children can show their understanding of each pattern.  

All spelling lists for the first Autumn term for classes 1-6 can be found through the PDF links below.
