SPELLING

Spelling is an integral part of the Home Learning expectations at Bainesse School. 

 Spelling is an essential part of the National Curriculum for English and a key element in developing literate readers and writers. The following lists can help to prepare children for their spelling learning at school, and can provide essential practice in key spelling patterns. It provides all those words which Primary School children are most likely to use in their writing and encounter in their reading. The lists are of increasing difficulty, and the words within each group become successively harder. Children are introduced to a spelling pattern, practice it to secure it, and are then able to use it in their own writing. The words covered in these lists represent 80 to 90 per cent of those found in most books and newspapers. If a child has learned and remembered the words in the list, he or she will be able to spell most of the words he or she wishes to use, and to read most of the words he or she will encounter in general reading.  

 Please use the following lists to support and accelerate your child's spelling knowledge and strategies. To facilitate the learning of these words pre-test your child on a set of words. Identify the words that are spelt incorrectly. Re-test the words at the end of the week to check how your child is going. Most children are expected to learn at least 10 words a week for home learning.  Children are encouraged to set personal goals in relation to spelling and can continue to learn new spelling words at their own pace.
