No Nonsense Spelling is a new complete spelling programme designed to meet the needs of the 2014 National Curriculum in a manageable way. Written by the Babcock LDP Primary Literacy team, the programme is easy to use, flexible and comprehensive, providing sufficient guidance to implement an effective spelling teaching programme from Year 2 to Year 6. Containing five separate teacher books (one for each year group) and a USB stick containing editable versions of the materials, the programme consists of termly overviews, breaking down the requirements of the National Curriculum into strands with individual lesson plans and resources.
“Many schools across Kent now use the No Nonsense Spelling programme from Years 2 to 6, and teachers report that they love the flexibility it offers. Children’s spelling is improving across the county, and Kent managed to equal National performance in the SPAG test in 2016 for the first time. The Local Authority identify improvements in spelling as being central to this rise in performance.”
