We begin our spelling work in Early Years through delivering Phase 1 and 2 of Letters and Sounds in Nursery and Phase 3-4 of Letters and Sounds in Reception.
As children move through the years in schools they continue to cover the phases in Letters and Sounds until they are secure in spelling and reading. Our phonics work across Early Years and Key Stage One is very secure and enables children to achieve outstanding results in each Year One phonics Screen.
Where required, phonics will continue into Key Stage 2 so we can ensure that children have developed a secure foundation. We also use the No Nonsense spelling resources and Chris Quigley Vocabulary Lists to support work in spelling.
Below is an outline of coverage from Year 2 to Year 6.
