Spelling

 

The children will have a short spelling test and a new set of spellings to learn every fortnight. Please support your children to learn these words at home. 

 

This year the children's spellings will be glued into the front of their spelling book and brought home. The children will do their spelling test in the back of their spelling book so that you can see how they got on with their spellings when they bring their book home.

 

We are having a go at lots of different strategies to help our spellings this year at school.

Strategies include:

 

  • Look, say, cover, write, check
  • Trace, copy and replicate
  • segmentation strategy
  • drawing an image around the word
  • missing vowels
  • rainbow writing and many more. 

 

Your child has been given a sheet with these strategies on them to bring home and show you. If you need another one then don't hesitate to let us know and we can send another one home.  Please help your child to practise these strategies at home.
