Spelling

No Nonsense Spelling

Bellfield Junior School follows the ‘No Nonsense’ Spelling scheme. The children will be taught strategies and spelling rules on a whole class basis. Children will learn spellings linked to these taught rules and also a selection of words from the Statutory Word List, which is broken down into Year3/4 ability and Year 5/6 ability. In addition to this, children will be choosing two personal ‘tricky’ words to learn. These are words that they have found challenging in their own work. Children will have the opportunity to practise their spellings both through written and verbal work. They will have a Look, Cover, Say, Write, Check sheet to take home and use. Children with SEND will receive extra support with their spellings, working on a 1:1 basis with a TA or using ‘Wordshark’.

Testing will be on a fortnightly basis. Class teachers will choose a fortnightly ‘Super Speller’. This will be a child who they believe has made a really good effort with their learning and deserves extra recognition.
