Spelling and Grammar
The new curriculum sets higher expectations for children's grammar, punctuation and spelling skills (set out in the Oxford University Press leaflet below). This is particular relevant for those children who have learnt under the old and new curriculum, as there will naturally be gaps in their experience and understanding. At Chesswood, we seek to bring children up to the expectations required and would encourage parents to support their children, at home, in this area. The menu on the left will lead you to booklets which can be used to help you become familiar with the new curriculum, the expectations set, and to support with ideas on how to support your child. The 'spelling practice' links provide you with resources to use with your children to help them learn their spellings.
