Guidance for use
Progression in Spelling (encoding)
Practitioner should judge the point at which their class and individual children should begin the programme
Select five words a day to work with; teaching children how to put sounds together to make words; going from left to right (encoding)
Together as a class use each word in a sentence. Children can then read these independently later
In addition to this programme, children should be given a period for uninterrupted silent reading at KS2. KS1 and EYFS should share stories, poems and rhymes daily and children given a poem or rhyme per week to memorise. Daily handwriting practice is also recommended
NB: Early EAL and SEN pupils will be operating outside their Letters & Sounds phases or year group. Please refer to their individual IEP.
