Spelling is a complex aspect of literacy that needs to be taught explicitly and systematically.

Stage 3 spelling includes the following topics:

  • Nominalisation
    Nominalisation is often a feature of texts that contain abstract ideas and concepts.
  • Prefix/suffix
    Prefixes and suffixes are syllable stems, which when added to the beginning (prefix) or to the end (suffix) of the ‘root’ part of a word shape the meaning of the word in its entirety.
