Spelling Bee Competition
It is very important that all children are still developing their spelling skills over the coming weeks. A word document has been uploaded below, which has structured spelling lists for your year group. These are some of the words that children are expected to be able to spell by the end of that year. Your challenge over the coming weeks is to learn how to spell as many of these words as possible.
A Spelling Bee competition will take place in each class when we return to school and rewards will be given to the children who have made the most progress with their spelling.
Teachers will be setting differentiated spelling tasks on a weekly basis in order to develop spelling skills, with a range of activities, both online and unplugged. Please see the weekly overview for these spelling tasks.
Remember Spellodrome is also a fantastic resource to continue to develop your spelling skills.
