Spellings

Spellings will usually be sent home on a Friday to be learnt for the following Friday. 

The children are encouraged to use the LOOK, COVER, WRITE, CHECK strategy to learn the spellings however there are lots of other fun games to play such as rearranging a selection of letters to make the tricky word, or 'hunt the word'- every time a word is found spell the word out loud. 

You might also like to try the games on www.educationcity.com - Access Year 1 and Literacy game -Sparklers
