No Nonsense Spelling Scheme of Work
At Woodley CofE, children follow the scheme 'No Nonsense Spelling' once they have completed the Read, Write, Inc scheme. This typically begins in Y2 for most children.
Information about the scheme:
The No Nonsense Spelling Programme was devised to offer teachers a comprehensive yet accessible progression in the teaching of spelling. Guidance, rather than prescription, is provided on how to teach the strategies, knowledge and skills pupils need to learn. The focus of the programme is on the teaching of spelling, which embraces knowledge of spelling conventions – patterns and rules; but integral to the teaching is the opportunity to promote the learning of spellings, including statutory words, common exceptions and personal spellings. The programme• delivers a manageable tool for meeting the requirements of the 2014 National Curriculum• has a clear progression through blocks of teaching units across the year• comprehensively explains how to teach spelling effectively.
