As part of the new National Curriculum children are expected to learn compulsory lists of spellings. These words are ones which are used a lot or may be tricky to spell. It is expected that all children will be able to spell these words by the time they leave Primary School. 

In addition there are two sets of high frequency words which are taught in Key Stage 1. By the beginning of Year 3 all children should be able to spell the words on these lists.

We are teaching the Y3/4/5/6 lists through our regular spelling, punctuation and grammar lessons and your child will undertake regular Spelling Tests to help them become used to the Spelling Test they will sit in Year 6. The lists of words can now be viewed using the links below. We hope this will give you a clear understanding of what we expect in terms of progress and achievement in spelling throughout the school.
