Spelling – Week 15/6/20 – Revision
As we come close to the end of Term we would like to give you an opportunity to revise phonemes taught over the weeks which have been online.

Perhaps there is a phoneme which you found trickier than others? Now is the time to look back down this page and revise.

The spelling grids at the start of the page give lots of ideas for Active Spelling but we know that you have found your own amazing ways to learn your words.

Challenge: Try to find other words which belong to the phoneme groups. Write them down and share them with us.


Spelling – Week 8/6/20 – gn (e.g. sign)
assignment      campaign      gnawing      foreigner     signed      resigning      gnarled       designing      gnome      gnaw gnat       reign
  campaign      gnawing      resigned       signed       design      foreign      assign      gnarl      gnat     gnome

 

  sign     design      assign      gnaw      gnome     foreign

 

sign     design      assign      gnaw       gnome       foreign

 

Try to create a silly sentence for each of your spelling words. You could even use two or more words in one sentence.
e.g. The gnome started to campaign because his assignment was due in and he wasn’t finished it yet.

Spelling – Week 1/6/20 – u (e.g. push)
pushing      bullying      bulletin     pudding     playful      cuckoo     octopus      butcher      sushi       cushion      pulpit      lunar
bullet     pushed     cuckoo     pudding     sugar     playful     awful      bush      super      lunar
push     put     pull     bull     sugar     lunar     sushi    super

 

push     bush     put     full      bull     super

 

Speed spelling –  Ask someone to set a timer for 1 minute. Choose a word from your list. How many times can your write that word in 1 minute? Try it for your other words.

Chalk Art – If you have chalk you could write out your words on the ground (Ask permission first;-)) or get a piece of paper and try to create new styles of writing. Try to write each word in a new font.

Spelling Catch – Ask someone to play ‘Spelling Catch‘. Spell out your words as you throw and catch a ball or toy with another person in your own household.


Spelling – Week 25/5/20 – Revision

It is a short week for everyone so we have decided to use the next 3 days for spelling revision.

Have a look through the previous weeks and test yourself.

Maybe there is a phoneme which you found trickier than others?

You could try to add new words to the lists already provided.

The ‘Active Spelling’ Menu is attached at the bottom of this page if you want to use that for ideas.

***Idea***

Use your spelling words in a game of ‘Zap It‘. You don’t need to have lollypop sticks. You can use paper too.

Write out all of the spelling words which you have been given over the past few weeks on pieces of paper then fold them or scrunch them up.

Add in some pieces which say ‘Zap It‘ and fold them up too.

Play with 2 or more people. Each person takes it in turn to pick a piece, open it and read the word. They must use the word in a sentence and then they get to keep the piece of paper.

If you lift a piece which says ‘Zap It‘ then you lose all of your pieces and you must fold them and put them back into game.

The repetition of seeing the words will help with the spelling of the words and forming sentences encourages you to use the word in a context.

 

Nathan used the letters from the game Scrabble to make his spelling words this week. The longest word he made was ‘mosquitoes’. Love this idea Nathan!
