This guidance will be followed from January 2016, as discussed at the Parent Information Meetings in September 2015.
Spellings are given on a two-weekly basis, and will be stuck into the front of children's planners. The list will contain words from the National Curriculum, as well as high frequency words and words from the statutory word list for Year 3/4. The children will be tested on the spellings during a literacy session; part of the test will be a word which follows the same spelling rule, but has not been learnt.
Each week, spellings will be listed here. In case your child loses or forgets their planner, you will be able to print off a list to learn.
Below is the statutory spelling list for Year 3/4. These are the words that all children are expected to know how to spell by the end of Year 4.
