Term 1: Unit 1
You can plan your half-termly spelling programme around this teaching focus using the support provided.
This half-term unit follows the Support for Spelling teaching sequence. This unit includes:
- activities and approaches to use during whole-class sessions
- extension activities for children who require extra work
- practice examples of words for children to focus on.
The focus of this unit is to embed the use of independent spelling strategies for spelling unfamiliar words. Strategies include phonemic, syllabic, visual, word families, mnemonics, and etymology.
This unit aims to encourage the children to become independent spellers and to develop strategies of their own that would improve their accuracy.
