For the Summer Term we will be simplifying our spellings by merging blue and green groups. Everyone will have 10 spellings to learn each week, most of which will follow a spelling pattern which we are practising in school that week. There may be some spellings which do not follow the pattern. These are likely to be high-frequency words which are very useful and are being spelt incorrectly in the children's writing. Please practise the spellings several times throughout the week, including in sentences so that your child is used to using the spellings correctly in context. I will attach a blank grid of the type that we have been using all year, feel free to use this to practise if your child finds it helpful. It may also be useful to use some of these techniques;
*spelling out loud
*pick two coloured pens - one for vowels and one for consonants, copy the word several times
*set a one minute timer and see how many times you can write the word
*pyramid writing - we have practised this in school - can you remember how to do it?
*see if you can write a list of other words which follow the same spelling pattern
NB THE DATE MARKED ON THE SPELLING FILE IS THE DATE ON WHICH IT WILL BE TESTED.
