New Spelling Curriculum 2014   

The phonemes and spellings that are in Appendix 1 of the new National Curriculum are what we as a school have a requirement to teach the children. The spellings your children bring home as part of their home learning will be a combination of these words and those which are similar in pattern or construction, as well as key curriculum vocabulary. Children in Years 2 & 6 will now be assessed against this new curriculum.

New Grammar and Punctuation Curriculum 2014     

Below is the grammar and punctuation curriculum against which children in Years 2 and 6 will be nationally assessed. Children in other year groups will be also be assessed to ensure that they are making good progress with regard to their year group objectives.

Try these websites if you are finding some of the terminology or rules a bit baffling, or have a look at the glossary below.
