Scorton C of E

Primary School




Our aim at Scorton Church of England Primary School is to teach the children to develop a range of personal strategies for learning spellings, and for checking and proofreading spellings in their own writing.  We build on the phonics teaching and learning. Spelling is taught using the 'Revise, Teach, Learn, Practise, Apply and Assess' sequence. Each child has a personal spelling journal.





By the time children leave Scorton Church of England Primary School they need to be able to write legibly, neatly, comfortably and quickly.

When we introduce letter formation in Reception we use visual images and a verbal description to help each child remember the movements necessary to form letters.


Once a child can confidently form the letters they can begin to join them. Each letter join is accompanied by ‘patter’ to help each child remember the correct formation.
