Phonics & Spelling

In Year 2 we follow the No-Nonsense Spelling scheme

You can have a look at the scheme here:



We send home a list of spellings every week to be practised at home for the following week. 

These spellings are bespoke for the children, based on their writing and what they need to practice. 

Strategies for practicing spellings can be found in the No Nonsense Spelling scheme.

Horniman Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
