SPELLINGS ‘words from this half term'
On Monday we will have a short test on words with the spelling patterns from this half term.
- Get some practice in on Times Tables Rock Stars. Garage will give you a focus on your tables based on how you're getting on with them, moving you on as you show that you can do one quickly. Studio questions can be anything up to 12x12 and will give you your rock status. (Once you have played 10 games, Studio calculates your mean time and uses that for your rock status.)
- Write out in your homework book a timestable which you would like to be better at and then use Daily 10 to practice it.
Each week we will focus on a new spelling rule (in Kea School we use the Nelson English Spelling scheme). Below are the rules that we will cover each week this half term and a sample of the words which the children will encounter. Our emphasis is on the understanding of spelling rules and being able to apply the rule to any words, including words that are not on the list. We will focus on each spelling rule for a week and have a small test on the Monday of the following week to apply the rule we have learnt.
