Spellings will be given out on a Tuesday and tested on the following Tuesday.
You can find your child's spellings in their homework diary and they are able to practise them in games on Purple Mash.
If you have any questions about your child's spellings, please do speak to your child's class teacher.
Strategies to help learn spellings
Break it into sounds ( d-i-a-r-y)
Break it into syllables (re-mem-ber)
Break it into affixes (dis + satisfy)
Refer to a word in the same family (muscle – muscular)
Say it as it sounds (Wed-nes-day)
Find words within words (I am in Parliament)
Use analogy (bright, light, night…)
Use a key word (horrible/drinkable for able and ible)
Learn by sight (look-cover-say-write-check)
