St John's Catholic Primary School

To Live in Love


At St. John's we know that learning to spell well is really useful if we want our children to become confident writers. If they are confident spellers, they’re also much more likely to make adventurous vocabulary choices. Obviously there’s a lot more to being a strong writer than spelling, but confidence in spelling can make a big difference. We support our youngest children by teaching Letters and Sounds systematic phonics. Ensuring that the children know the sounds different letters make. From Year 2 we use support for spelling and No Nonsense Spelling scheme to enhance and support our children in spelling. We support children to learn a range of spelling patterns and strategies to support their learning.
