Spelling & Homework Section

Homework and Spellings will be given out on Monday and returned the following Monday unless otherwise stated.

Suggested spelling activities to do with your child:

  • Create their own mnemonics, e.g. big elephants can add up sums easily:because.

  • Make posters/spelling shapes using the outline of a word.

  • Use big paper, attractive pens, writing in foam or sand, magic boards, whiteboards, magnetic letters, etc. when learning spellings.

  • Speed writing challenges, such as: how many times can you write this word in one minute?

  • Link spellings to reading i.e. ‘Spot the Word!’ Ask children to find the words they are learning in their reading book.

  • Play hidden words, e.g. ‘ksjdfhplaymjjbdf’. 

  • Play word snap.

  • Make word collections; encourage children to collect words which follow the same rule and add them to a log.

  • Write silly sentences using as many of their spelling words as possible. 

  • Create a word search. 

  • Play ‘Hangman’.

  • Play ‘Scrabble’.
