Y2 - Y6 Spelling Rules curriculum

Spelling Patterns and rules

As children move into Key Stage 2 (Years 3 to 6), they are taught to spell increasingly complex words; many of which do not conform to regular rules or patterns. The national curriculum sets out the type of words children should typically be able to spell by the end of Year 4 and Year 6. These lists are included alongside other resources below.


Being a good speller requires regular practice and attention to detail. Parents can support the work of the school by practising the spellings your child brings home each week. We have produced a number of resources to support parents and children with spelling - these are available to download below. If you would like any additional information or support, please speak with your child's class teacher.
