At Aldbury school, once children are secure with their phonic knowledge teacher's use the Herts for Learning ESSENTIAL spelling programme. This is a whole class approach to teaching spelling that enables all children to succeed and gives teachers the unique tools to make that happen. The planning sequences are detailed and they include activities and resources to help teachers deliver the sessions. Every sequence tracks back to review prior linked learning, enabling children to build on the foundations of previous year groups, and assisting teachers to identify gaps in learning. Every sequence shows teachers how to support the children who have gaps, as well as how to provide challenge and build new skills where needed.
Please ask your children's teacher if you would like a copy of the word lists for Years 3/4 or Year 5/6.
