Spelling Curriculum Map

This curriculum map organises the compulsory spelling rules and patterns, in addition to the compulsory lists of words for pupils to learn across Reception, Key Stage 1 & 2, into half termly objectives.

The different strands are based on the linguistic principles of how words are built up from either sounds or morphemes (chunks of meaning).  Some words in English do not follow either of these principles, so other spelling cues are needed to support children to learn them.
