Description

Perfect for learners who have mastered many of the common spelling rules and patterns for spelling short and long vowel sounds, as well as using simple tools to pump up their writing with description and a variety of sentences for interest. 

In this stage, learners will further develop their understanding of the relationship between spelling and meaning.  A focus on Greek and Latin root words, as well as commonly used prefixes and suffixes gives an insight into the way words are put together with chunks of meaning.  Some of the more tricky spelling rules are introduced, and a simple introduction to the use of the possessive apostrophe is included. 

The writing process includes an emphasis on developing control of sentences, and the need to structure and organise ideas for clarity.  On the reverse, quick reference guides for useful descriptive tools sit alongside a tool to support the use of good complex sentences.  ‘Sentence sense’ is a focus, with learners developing the ability to manipulate sentences, enabling variety.  Prompts for good paragraphing complete the card. 

The star strategy at this stage is to think about meaning.  The word parts highlighted on the card are a great springboard into discovering more commonly used affixes and root words.  Developing each learner’s curiosity for language, inviting them to find out and discover more, is a goal at this stage.
