For this week's homework, the children have been given their individual spellings to practice (these are either in their reading record or their homework book). Some of the children are now using really useful ways of making spellings memorable.
Some examples are:
Writing the words with your non writing hand
Colouring sparkly bits around the words
Writing the words or tricky bits in bubble writing
Making up a little story about the letters in the tricky bits, e.g. 'are you going home tonight' for a-u-g-h-t
The possibilities are endless!
