Spelling Years 2-5


Years 2-5


As children move from year 1 to year 2 they are taught spelling following the National Curriculum program. We focus on the teaching of spelling which embraces knowledge of spelling conventions – patterns and rules; but integral to the teaching is the opportunity to promote the learning of spellings, including statutory words, common exceptions and personal spellings.


Each lesson is approximately 15-20 minutes long but lesson plans are flexible so that the teaching can reflect the teaching time needed on a teaching point if required. Handwriting is taught within the program following the cursive style.
