At Wool CE Primary, we provide children with a range of spelling strategies throughout school which cater for different learning needs. Early spelling is taught through phonic work in EYFS and Key Stage 1 using Read, Write, Inc. As children move from Key Stage 1 to Key Stage 2, the emphasis shifts from the teaching of phonics to more focused teaching of spelling strategies, conventions and rules to build upon the children’s established phonic knowledge. However, phonic support and intervention is still provided in Key Stage 2 to those children who need it.
