Super Spellers!

 

We hope you all received your new spellings ready for the week ahead! Spelling is tricky. Often children can remember their spellings for a test but sometimes forget them when it comes to writing something different. Here are some top tips to ensure your child becomes a super speller:

 

 

  • Learn the weekly spellings in a mixed up order
  • Put the spellings in sentences when you are practising them
  • Encourage looking at the word shape- do it look right?
  • Are there any sound patterns to look out for?
  • Keep a bank of spellings your child is not sure of and keep practising these
  • Can you us a mnemonic? Eg. because- big elephants can’t always use small exits

 

Your home learning is to try a new way of learning your spellings. Could you fit them into a sentence? Write a passage? Learn them on post-its? Tell us how you go on. Most importantly have fun!
