Weekly spelling lists will be posted below throughout the year. These words will come home in a purple Home Spelling exercise book. Spelling tests will be every Wednesday, giving students 7 days to practise the words. We will practise them most days at school but they must be practised at home. Words will usually follow a theme for the week helping your child remember them.

The best way to practise the words is to do them often. Repetition allows the patterns to transfer from short-term to long-term memory and provides a mental picture for many students (how many times do still write a word down to 'see' if it 'looks right'). Have your child recite them to you while you are cooking or washing the dishes. If time allows, put them into a game (like Hangman), write sentences, make crosswords. The words can be inserted into the following internet activities:

Remember, the more you practise, they better your child's chances of success. Tests are on Wednesday.
