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.
