Spelling Lists

Although some may dismiss the importance of spelling as becoming redundant with the onset of technological advances, research continues to show that spelling improves reading and writing fluency, as well as vocabulary and comprehension. Learning to spell helps to cement the relationship between letters and sounds, and should be an integral part of language instruction for every student. It is the mortar that helps students master the basics of language, especially those who may struggle with reading. Research also shows that there is a strong relationship between writing and spelling as writers who must think too hard about how to spell use up valuable resources needed for the higher levels of composition in writing. At King Harold Academy we have recognised that spelling plays an integral part in aiding students ability to read and write. Therefore, we have created a list of core spellings which are specific to each curriculum area. Students should learn to spell the key words and use these as a starting point to help develop their spelling and language further.
