Comprising six pupils and two books for teachers, Schofield & Sims Spelling is suitable for all pupils who have a basic understanding of letter-sound relationships. This accessible series, ideal for whole-school use, gives pupils extensive practice in using their phonic knowledge to spell words and encourages them to become effective spellers.


Based on the model ‘teach, practise, apply and assess’, the books develop pupils’ spelling skills by:

  • Systematically introducing spelling conventions and revising those already taught

  • Exploring word structure and relationships between words

  • Suggesting strategies for remembering common ‘tricky’ or ‘exception’ words

  • Helping pupils to monitor and correct their own spelling

  • Providing regular transcription practice through dictation activities.

Contents

Schofield & Sims Spelling is a structured programme for pupils in Years 1 to 6, comprising six pupil books, a teacher’s guide, a teacher’s resource book and a range of free downloads available from the Schofield & Sims website. Supporting the National Curriculum requirements, it gives children intensive practice in using their phonic knowledge to spell words, not only preparing them for the national tests but also encouraging them towards effective spelling for life.

Support

The Spelling Teacher’s Guide supports the systematic and explicit teaching of strategies, rules, guidelines and patterns to help pupils throughout your school to make good progress in spelling. For each of the six pupil books there are detailed teaching notes which:


  • Suggest how best to introduce each learning point or ‘focus’

  • Clarify the detail of the focus and exactly what should be covered

  • Recommend ways of modelling, explaining and exploring the focus to develop pupils’ understanding

  • Refer you, where appropriate, to relevant photocopiable resources in the Teacher’s Resource Book

  • Provide you with a regular weekly dictation sentence tailored to the learning point.

Free downloads from the Schofield & Sims website support the series, including correlation charts and spelling logs.

Impact

A review of Schofield & Sims Spelling by John Dabell for Teach Primary said: ‘The scope of the programme is impressive and there’s an overview of each area of focus to be taught. The teaching notes detail what you need to cover and recommend ways of modelling the content. They aren’t too long either – just right, in fact.

Cost

Teacher’s Guide £8.00; Teacher’s Resource Book £8.00; pupil books £3.50 each.
