    Can anyone please recommend a spelling scheme for KS1 and KS2 that has weekly spelling lists and assessments included?

    I don't know about others, but I really feel that sometimes learning lists of spellings doesn't always equate to using them in thei writing. They believe they have succeeded because they got them all right, yet don't necessarily continue to spell correctly in their work. I'm personally a fan of teaching the rules and then getting them to fill in (cloze procedure) a paragraph with words (sometimes met and sometimes just further examples of the 'rule') There's a superb set of books by Violet Brand Sam and the Tramp ideal for this in the lower age ranges and I tend to make up my own in upper Juniors.

    Not heard of these, they sound fab and will order one to take a look. Thanks for the recommendation. Anything else?
