Spelling at Altmore
In KS1 we follow the Nelson Spelling which provides a whole-school programme for the teaching of spelling from Reception–Year 6. It is fully matched to the National Curriculum outlined in the following document-
Nelson Spelling Scheme introduces spelling rules, structures and patterns in small steps and offers three levels of differentiation, with plenty of writing practice and a clear record of progress for every child. At Altmore, children in KS1 are taught a spelling rule every Monday and then have homework for the week, practising this rule and applying it on a Friday in a spelling test.
