Curriculum Information for Parents-Reading & Spelling
Phonic Pronunciation (Youtube video showing the correct phonic pronunciations)
Phonics (YR-Y2)
Read Write Inc. Spelling Overview  (Y2-Y6)
Colour coded useful spelling patterns and word lists (Y2-Y6)
This is a colour coded list of the most important spelling objectives taught to the children between Y2-Y6. The colours show you which year group the objective is taught in, based on current curriculum expectations (although there is some overlap). The list is not exhaustive by any means, but it does detail the words that come up most frequently in standardised tests and those that the children use most frequently in their writing. The sheet is intended as a guide, not a list of spellings to learn by rote. If you would like to work with your child, please use the list as a starting point to investigate words that come under the objectives noted. Perhaps work together to create word clusters (a group of words that all contain the same letter string or spelling pattern). In Y6 the children can be tested on any of these words. The test is usually roughly split into thirds with a third of words taken from the objectives from Y2 to Y4, a third or more from the Y5 curriculum and then a scattering of tricky words and homophones from the Y6 revision curriculum. The English language is complicated, so the children have their work cut out!

Statutory Word Lists
(Issued by the Department for Education-words that children should know on exit from Y4 and Y6).
