Spelling, Punctuation & Grammar

Intent:

At St Uny CE Academy, it is our intent that our pupils will be able to read and write fluently, be adventurous in their language choices, and write for pleasure by the time that they leave us. In order for these aims to be realised, it is crucial that our pupils are provided with the knowledge and skills to spell accurately. It is our intent to provide pupils with a knowledge of morphology (word structure) and orthography (spelling structure) through regular, engaging, multi-sensory spelling sessions. It is our intent to encourage pupils to apply their spelling knowledge in all areas of their independent writing and to equip pupils with a range of skills and approaches to tackle the spelling of more ambitious and unfamiliar words. We want to develop the provision of spelling to allow children to effectively communicate their ideas and to take delight in the patterns and contradictions of the English language.

Spelling:
From Year 2 to Year 6, each class will be sent home weekly spellings - these will result in a spelling test each Friday. Spellings will be sent out weekly by class teachers, below is the full list of weekly spellings for each year group.
