We are starting to set spelling quizzes for ‘red’ (tricky) words on Purple Mash. There will be a new quiz each week. You can find the first quiz under ‘Spelling quiz Summer 1’ as a ‘2do’ when you log into your child’s account. In addition to doing the quizzes, there are lots of other ways to practise the spellings at home, using the steps ‘look at the word, say the word, cover it up, write it’. You could ask your child to write the word in sand, paints, felt tips, magnetic letters, scrabble tiles, in rainbow writing, etc.
We will be teaching the same spellings each week in school and will also be listing them on the blog each week. The spellings for the week beginning Monday 26 April are:
do, of, said, says, was
We will also send some Maths Mats home for your child to complete, they reinforce what we do in class.
Thank you for all your help. If you have any questions, please just ask.
