We have a rigorous programme of spelling teaching at Mill Rythe. Spelling sessions are based around the rule or pattern identified for that week on the medium term overviews. This session includes teaching, with additional activities to support children to consolidate their learning.
In addition to the weekly spelling session, it is expected that teachers routinely identify tier 2 words that many children are misspelling across the curriculum. These should be focussed on and practised regularly throughout the day/ week and then tested.
