Spellings at Somerville


We follow the Nelson Spelling course.  Children are encouraged to use their knowledge of the sounds (phonics) to spell (encode) and read (decode) regular words.  Children will be given words to learn each week.  These will often be linked to certain letter patterns or spelling rules.  We have now expect children to copy a statement correctly using the correct cursive handwriting script whilst it is being dictated by a teacher!
