Spelling

Spelling at Veritas Primary Academy

English is unarguably a complex language but, despite its complexity, 85% of the English spelling system is predictable. Your child will learn the rules and conventions of the system and the spelling strategies needed to become a confident speller.

At Veritas we teach spelling through:

Spelling Books – This is a spelling programme of age appropriate and high frequency words.

Spelling Investigations – children investigate spelling rules to see if there are spelling patterns that can be applied.  They then have the opportunity to practise and apply the rule, ensuring that new learning is embedded over time.
