Statutory spellings

As part of the new National Curriculum children are expected to learn compulsory lists of spellings. These words are ones which are used a lot or may be tricky to spell. It is expected that all children will be able to spell these words by the time they leave Junior School.

In addition there are two sets of high frequency words which are taught in KS1. By the beginning of Year 3 all children should be able to spell the words on these lists.

We are teaching the Y3/4/5/6 lists through our regular spelling, punctuation and grammar lessons and Spellzoo lists. These words can now be viewed using the links below. We hope this will give you a clear understanding of what we expect in terms of progress and achievement in spelling through KS2.

There is also a fantastic, challenging and free APP called ‘Spellfix’ that children love to play on. It is a fun way to learn the trickiest words in the English language.
