Product description for parents
Schofield & Sims Spelling is a structured and rigorous programme designed for Key Stages 1 and 2 and also suitable for some older students. Comprising six pupil books and an accompanying teacher’s guide and teacher’s resource book, this comprehensive series builds on pupils’ phonics knowledge while also helping them to understand how word structure and meaning can help them to spell words. Each Spelling pupil book:
- systematically introduces spelling conventions and revises those already taught
- explores word structure and the relationship between words of shared origin
- suggests strategies for remembering common ‘exception words’ (also known as ‘tricky words’)
- teaches pupils how to monitor and correct their own spelling
- encourages pupils to write sentences from memory or dictation
- contains answers to all the questions in the back of the book.
Spelling Book 4 supports the National Curriculum requirements for Year 4 and covers the following topic areas: using further prefixes and suffixes; using rules for adding suffixes beginning with vowels; spelling a range of homophones; developing an understanding of word structure and word origin; learning guidelines for alternative spelling of phonemes (such as ‘i’ spelt y, ‘k’ or ‘sh’ spelt ch, gue, que; learning guidelines relating to the spelling of endings (for example, ‘tion’, ‘sion’, ‘ous’, ‘able’, ‘ible’).
A separate accompanying teacher’s guide, Spelling Teacher’s Guide (ISBN 9780721712185), provides detailed teaching notes that suggest how best to explain and explore each learning point and a separate accompanying teacher’s resource book, Spelling Teacher’s Resource Book (ISBN 9780721712192), contains photocopy masters that support teaching, assessment and record-keeping. A selection of free downloads is also available from the Schofield & Sims website.
