At Northfield we follow a clear spelling scheme throughout the school. This page contains information on personal spelling lists and some useful links to spelling games and activities to help with learning spellings.



At Northfield we follow a clear, easy to follow handwriting scheme. Attached are examples of joins, line guides and samples of work for you to look at.

In Years 3 and 4, the beginner handwriting guidelines are used. At first children learn to use the guidelines by writing on top. When they form all of their letters correctly, the children move on to using the guidelines under plain paper.

In Years 5 and 6, pupils use the standard guidelines to refine their handwriting style, making letters smaller and clearer.
