Phonics and Spelling

Underhill School follows the ‘No Nonsense’ Spelling scheme from Year 2 upwards. The children will be taught strategies and spelling rules on a whole class basis and then will be given opportunities to play word games to ensure they have a good understanding of how to use the spelling rules to help them spell unfamiliar words. The children will also look at words linked to these taught rules to use in their daily writing. Finally, they will also look at the words on the Statutory Word List, which is broken down into Year 3/4 ability and Year 5/6 ability
