Ww/E3.1b Apply knowledge of strategies to aid with spelling
(i) Develop strategies for learning and remembering spelling which take into account the part played in accurate spelling by visual memory (what words look like), motor memory (the use of joined-up handwriting) and auditory memory (what words sound like). E.g. Use strategies such as ‘Look, Say, Cover, Write, Check', mnemonics, sounding out the word phonetically, words within words, colour, beating out syllables, and splitting up words to highlight visual features, e.g. r ece ive.
(ii) Develop understanding of the importance of personal learning style and of individual spelling strategies in learning to spell
(iii) Extend use of reference tools such as dictionaries, glossaries and spell-checks for checking spelling, while being aware of the limitations of these tools.
