Spelling and Grammar
At Leatherhead Trinity we teach spelling and grammar as part of the literacy learning journeys. Lessons will often start with grammar or spelling starters that link in with the skills children need to use in these lessons. We also teach separate spelling lessons for 15 minutes four times a week. This is an opportunity for the spelling rules to be unpicked and covered in more detail. Spelling and grammar rules will be displayed in the classroom and children will be reminded of these regularly when they are writing.
Within the curriculum, there are spelling lists of words that each year group needs to practice and learn. You will find them at the bottom of this page.
Grammar has a high profile in the curriculum and expectations for each year group are higher than they were previously.
You will find the expectations for each year group in the document at the bottom of this page.
Every child in KS2 has their own personal log in for Spelling Shed. Through a games based approach, children can practise their spellings in a fun and interactive way. We use Spelling Shed in class and as part of our home learning.
