At Ashford Park Primary School, we use EdShed's spelling scheme to teach spelling. This spelling scheme uses the most up to date, cutting edge research into the teaching of spelling. The lessons are spread over six stages and begin once the children have completed the Little Wandle phonics programme. The lessons are based on phonics, morphology and etymology, covering all the requirements of the National Curriculum.
Spelling shed activities are set as part of our online learning, linked to the lessons each week. The children's achievements within Spelling Shed are celebrated weekly in our phase celebration assemblies, which include the top 3 classes and individuals in the league tables that week.
