At Bledington Primary School every child experiences high quality teaching of phonics and spelling. We are following one of the government accredited phonics programmes, Twinkl Phonics with EYFS and Key Stage1 pupils. We have created our own programmes to teach spelling using the National Curriculum for Key Stage 2 pupils.
In the Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1, we start by teaching single phonemes and use this knowledge to start blending and segmenting straight away. Then we move onto teaching digraphs (2 letters making 1 sound) and trigraphs (3 letters making 1 sound). Through the phases of phonics we start to teach the spelling of words containing the taught sounds and also common exception words.
In Key Stage 2, we consolidate knowledge and move onto teaching spelling rules and patterns linked to the National Curriculum. We also work through the common exception words for both Y3 & 4 and Y5 & 6.
