At St Joseph's Primary School we understand the importance of Literacy skills and their use within the wider world. As part of your child's literacy lessons they will be learning to spell words relating to specific patterns each week in class. We have listened to your feedback and have made available lists of words that you can study with your child at home. The lists compiled are words that your child will come across as part of their reading in school and are age appropriate.
At St Joseph's we recognise that children develop at different stages and that the spelling lists provided should be viewed with this in mind. Some children may benefit from spelling words from the class below or the class above. There are a list of words for Year 6 pupils - Extension List if children are finding the Year 6 words less challenging.
There are a number of ways of promoting spelling with your children at home and we shall be posting these ideas very shortly.
