We have a wide range of spelling resources to support you in the classroom. These include spelling pathways for each year group, examples of spelling journals, error analysis charts and mastering proof-reading support.
Spelling path Years 2-6
Error analysis chart
When thinking about what to improvements to pupils' spelling to focus on, it is helpful to clarify which patterns and types of words individuals and groups are stumbling over.
Proofreading prompts for teachers
When teaching children to master proofreading, we'd encourage them to move from dependence to independence gradually, with each process being modelled.
Wand Spelling is an interactive online resource to supplement the teaching of spelling from Y2 to Y6.
It is designed for children to use as home learning activities or independent activities in school. The resource enables children to practise spelling content learnt in lessons, and it allows teachers to monitor and assess the children’s success.
Wand Spelling has been written by the Babcock LDP Primary English Team, authors of No Nonsense Spelling: Rebecca Cosgrave, Alison Jones, Rebecca New, Jenny Core.
All the activities are linked to the teaching content of No Nonsense Spelling and provide purpose written activities for independent practice and learning. The activities are all matched to the National Curriculum Programme of Study for each year group, making them ideal to supplement any spelling resource. Activities include practising homophones, spelling patterns, prefixes and suffixes, Common Exception words in Year 2, and the Statutory Word Lists at Year 3/4 and Year 5/6.
