Spelling & Homework Section

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

Suggested activities to develop spelling:

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

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

  •  Use visual, auditory and kinaesthetic approaches for all learners: use big paper, attractive pens, writing in foam or sand, magic boards, whiteboards, magnetic letters, etc.

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

  • Spelling games on iPads, e.g. boggle

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

  • Hidden words, e.g. ‘ksjdfhplaymjjbdf’. Challenge children to spot the word.

  •  Playing word snap.

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

  • Writing silly sentences using as many of the words in their spelling log as possible. It also has to make grammatical sense.

  • Creating their own word search. Have plenty of blank word search grids, and they can make their own.

  • Playing ‘Hangman’.

  •  Playing ‘Scrabble’.
