Spelling rules, conventions and strategies are taught in school and a list of spellings to learn is given out on a Thursday, for a test the following Thursday. Children need to write sentences each week that show they know the meaning of the words, as well as practising spelling the words using their preferred strategies. We recommend that children practise their spellings for 5 minutes or so each day rather than a longer period all at once.
