The format of spellings and the spelling tests has now changed across the school.  We now follow a scheme from the Oxford Reading Owl. The children now complete daily sessions, in class, looking at different prefixes/suffixes and patterns.


They learn how to form words, rules for spellings and exceptions to the rules. The children are then tested on a Friday. The difference now being, they don't know the words they are going to be tested on; they just know the pattern.


 Children in Year 4 are not expected to take spellings home.
