Spelling by Carol Matchett

Ideal for both whole-school and independent learning, this comprehensive and high-quality series builds on pupils' phonic knowledge while also helping them to understand how word structure and meaning can help them to spell words. Providing excellent preparation for the national tests, the Schofield & Sims Spelling activities systematically introduce and revise spelling conventions, explore word structure and the relationship between words of shared origin, suggest strategies for remembering common 'exception words' (or 'tricky words'), teach pupils how to monitor their own spelling, and encourage them to write sentences from memory or dictation. As pupils work through each book, the intensive practice provided will enable them continually to develop, consolidate and improve their skills, encouraging them towards effective spelling for life. Spelling 2 covers: segmenting words into phonemes and selecting the correct spelling from alternatives; learning new ways to spell phonemes; distinguishing between homophones; adding prefixes and suffixes to spell longer words; applying rules for adding suffixes; learning spelling guidelines.
