Supporting your children with Spelling and Grammar (SPAG)
Children at Queenswell Junior School will cover the requirements under the National Curriculum for spelling.
Spelling at Queenswell is taught using the No Nonsense spelling scheme which teaches children a variety of strategies to attempt and to learn to spell words as well as common rules for spelling.
Support your child with learning their spelling with the strategies explained here.
We are now using new spelling booklets for homework which tie in with the No Nonsense spelling scheme. Ask your child’s teacher for the spellings to be learned each week or if you need a new booklet.
You may be told by your child’s teacher that your child needs extra practice learning the spellings of high frequency words – the first 100 and 200 high frequency words can be found here.

The BBC Skillswise website has lots of information about practical literacy skills for adults that will help you to support your child with their learning.
