BIG SPELL

Every morning the children will have the opportunity to practise their Big Spell words. These are a list of ten words that the children will be learning and be checked on every week. They will bring some of the spelling words home to practise.

 

In our curriculum, spelling section there is a list of all the BIG SPELL words which your child will be learning, so you can practise these at home. There is also an ideas section so that you can try fun and different ways to practise the spellings.
