Hill Top Primary Academy adopted in 2016 the No Nonsense Approach to spellings.  Children from Years 2-6 will be taught strategies and spelling rules on a whole class basis. Children will learn spellings linked to these taught rules and also a selection of words from the Statutory Word List, which is broken down into Year 3/4 ability and Year 5/6 ability.  Children will have the opportunity to practise their spellings both through written and verbal work.
