At Weddington Primary School, we have recently introduced Spelling Shed as our new Spelling scheme. We believe that Spelling Shed is an exciting scheme, which aligns with the English National Curriculum for spellings, and allows children to learn them in a fun and exciting way by playing a range of games. Each week your child is introduced to their spellings and any spelling pattern which are featured that week. In school, time is assigned for the children to familiarise themselves with their spellings by completing activities such as:
- Word searches
- Spelling matching games
- Completing sentences by putting the spelling in to a sentence
- Spelling scribbles
- Handwriting practice
Your child has their own log-on to log into Spelling Shed at home. Each week, your child’s teacher will set them an assignment, which links to the spelling pattern and spellings they have been learning in class. Children can practise their spellings online via Spelling Shed by selecting one of four levels of differentiated game, allowing them to practise their spellings at a level they find challenging. Children receive points and honeypots when they spell words correctly and for speed bonuses and accuracy. They can use these points to upgrade their ‘Avatar.’ Your child’s class teacher will be able to track your child’s progress to see which words they are finding difficult to spell each week. Our staff understand that not all families have access to a device and therefore, we request that you speak to your child’s class teacher should you wish for a paper resource sheet to be sent home instead.
