Spelling and Grammar

The National Curriculum sets high expectations for children's grammar, punctuation and spelling. 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 booklets below can be used to help you become familiar with the curriculum for your child, the expectations set, and ideas on how to support your child. They contain the full word lists and rules for each year group. Click on the image to download. 


The children must also know how to spell the most frequently used words - click on an image below to see these words. You can test your child on these words and practice any that are not correct.

The following table provides many exciting ways to help children learn their spellings. 

The 'spelling practice' links provide you with resources to use with your children to help them learn their spellings.
