Each week children will receive a spelling sheet of 5 words. These spellings will also be sent by ParentMail. We have chosen high frequency keywords which we would like children to become familiar with and learn how to spell accurately. The children will not be tested on these words in school, however we will be looking carefully at their writing in class to assess whether they are spelling these words accurately and can recognise them when reading.
To help your child at home, we ask that you look at the words together and discuss their meaning, say them aloud, cover the words one at a time and have a go at writing them and encourage your child to compare their word with the printed one and check it.
Once your child has practised the words several times, encourage them to say the word in a sentence, then write it down.
The completed spelling sheets do not need to come back to school.
Thank you for your support.
