Spellings for Me

9th Nov 2022

The ‘Spellings for Me’ programme is used in the senior classes in the school from 3rd class to 6th class.

This individualised programme allows children to learn spellings at their own level.
Children complete spelling tests online, those known are added to Mastered words,
those words unknown go into the next learning words test to be studied again.
Children work through 40 levels of spellings. They learn spellings using strategies
such as: finding a mini word in the word, mnemonics, letter strings and letter
drawings. The children complete four activities offline in their workbooks each week
completely catered to their own ability.

This programme is essentially a tailor-made spelling programme. Your child’s spellings will be solely based on the words that they do not know how to spell, working at their own level. No two children will have the same spellings, as no two children are the same.
