The National Curriculum Aims

The National Curriculum for English aims to ensure that:


At lower key stages 2 - years 3 and 4:

Pupils’ spelling of common words should be correct, including common exception words and other words that they have learnt (see English Appendix 1). Pupils should spell words as accurately as possible using their phonic knowledge and other knowledge of spelling, such as morphology and etymology.


At upper key stages 2 - years 5 and 6:

Pupils apply their growing knowledge of root words, prefixes and suffixes (morphology and etymology), as listed in English Appendix 1, both to read aloud and to understand the meaning of new words that they meet
