SPELLING AND SPELLING SHED

Spelling Shed January 2023

This half-term, we have started spelling practise in school. 

The teachers have set up a spelling shed login for your child to practise weekly spellings (your child's log in has been glued into their reading dairy). Each following Monday, we will be doing a spelling test to assess the rule taught from the previous week. This will also include some words that they have not practised in their homework in order to test the rule not just those specific words. 

Please see the parent guidance video to support you at home with your child: EdShed Parent guide - Spelling Shed MathShed QuizShed - Bing video
