Top Tips for Spelling at Home

One of the key priorities at Ackworth Howard this year is spelling.

We want to ensure spelling rules and patterns can be accessed from children’s long-term memory.

We felt that it was important to find a way that allowed the children to have the chance to practise their words over a period of time, preferably little and often, to ensure they went into their long-term memory e.g. very similar to the approach we take to learning our times tables.

Summarised below are a range of strategies that can be used at home to help your child become a confident speller. Please practice a range of spellings on a frequent basis.
