Spelling

A good standard of spelling is very important for enhancing your child’s writing. At Balfour, we now follow a spelling programme called ‘No Nonsense Spelling’ which covers the National Curriculum spelling expectations. The lessons in school time are fun and engaging, and encourage the children to use a range of strategies which you can also use when practising with your children at home. Below, we have attached information about the spelling patterns covered in each year-group, as well as the Statutory Spelling Lists for Years 3 and 4, and Years 5 and 6. We have also attached some examples and advice about how to support your child with spellings at home. We really value you working with us from home, in making sure that every child achieves their highest level of spelling potential.
