Children will be provided with a weekly set of spellings. This will be in their Spelling Book. Once a week the children will be assessed on these spellings. Stickers will be given for 9 or 10 correct. Stickers will also be given to recognise the children who have practised their spellings regularly and have tried very hard.
What does learning your spelling mean? We do not expect children to just go through the motions of learning their spellings, but to actually take responsibility for their learning and to extend their spelling skills by making an effort to learn new words. Children will be provided with ideas of how to learn spellings.
