Spelling/handwriting

Spelling is every WEDNESDAY. Children write their words in their big yellow book to learn at home, then return it by the following WEDNESDAY. The tests are recorded in their school English books.

 

There are activities at the back of their homework books to do with their words at home. Sometimes the teacher will give them an activity, sometimes the children choose their own.

 

For the next few weeks, the children will be using commonly used words. After that, they will be working on different and more difficult spelling patterns.

 

We are focusing on improving handwriting. The children are being encouraged to practise their handwriting by using their spelling words. The following link shows how the letters are formed:
