Why teaching children to spell is important

Many pupils find spelling a difficult and uninteresting task. However, spelling instruction is essential in primary school as it helps to build a foundation for future literacy skills.

  • Firstly, it helps pupils to develop their reading ability. By learning to spell, pupils build their knowledge of the alphabetic system and how it is used in reading. This, in turn, makes them more confident and proficient readers.
  • Secondly, spelling skills lead to confidence in all aspects of literacy. If pupils can spell confidently, they will be more likely to take risks and experiment with writing. Independent spellers will be less likely to shy away from using new words, as they will know that they can spell them correctly.
  • Finally, good spelling helps pupils to communicate clearly and effectively. In an age where much communication takes place online, learning to spell correctly also helps pupils to avoid making mistakes in other schoolwork and later in life.

Learning to spell correctly is an important part of pupils' education. Giving pupils regular practice and providing corrective feedback, will help to improve spelling and develop communication skills.


The ‘Look, say, cover, write, check’ spelling strategy

Look, say, cover, write, check’ is a simple but effective strategy for learning spelling.

The idea is to look at the word, say it out loud, cover it up, write it from memory and then check the correct form of the word to see if you have spelt it correctly.

It is especially useful for pupils who are struggling with their spelling or who have made mistakes in their writing work. By using this strategy regularly, pupils will quickly overcome any spelling difficulties they may have. In addition, they will develop a deeper understanding of how to spell words correctly.

For teachers, the strategy of ‘Look, say, cover, write, check’ is an invaluable tool for primary school children learning to spell with success.
