Writing

No Nonsense Spelling Years 2-6:

No Nonsense Spelling teaches spelling in a 'little-but-often' structure which allows children to revisit and review, learn new strategies and apply. A variety of strategies are suggested so that children with different learning styles can find out what works well for them.

No Nonsense Spelling teaches spelling, punctuation and grammar. It has a strong SPAG element that will support our children with their writing, especially as there is a clear progression through each year, and it is helpful because it builds on prior learning. It is a great resources to ensure a well-managed spelling curriculum as it provides teachers notes for each lesson and a bank of resources to match.
