Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar
At Eaton we teach regular spelling, punctuation and grammar lessons. In KS2 we use Pathways to Spell, but always reflect on what the class needs and adapt planning accordingly. Punctuation and grammar sessions reflect what skills are being taught in Pathways to Write, so children can apply what they have learned.
We follow a mastery approach to the teaching of spelling through the programme ‘Pathways to Spell’. It is a programme designed to deliver the statutory content of the Primary National Curriculum for spelling in key stages 1 and 2. Through weekly teaching of spelling objectives and development of a whole school approach to word transcription, vocabulary development and proof-reading, the programme aims to develop children as proficient spellers.
You will find the end of year expectations for spelling for each of our year groups in the attached documents.
