Spelling Seeds

View Samples

Spelling Seeds complement Writing Roots by providing weekly, contextualised sequences of sessions for the teaching of spelling that include open-ended investigations and opportunities to practise and apply within meaningful and purposeful contexts, linked (where relevant) to other areas of the curriculum and a suggestion of how to extend the investigation into home learning. Each seed is between 2 and 5 sessions in length (matching the number of weeks to its associated Writing Root).

The objectives and spelling words match the Literacy Tree text being covered to make for purposeful application as well as including coverage from the phonics and spelling elements of Appendix 1, where appropriate. Each sessions could be taught as single one-off lessons or broken down and taught across a number of days.
