Spag Monsters

This week your children will bring home a log in for SPAG MONSTERS.

We are trialling this, so would be great to know what you think.

The children were excited when I showed them today. It will help them with spellings, grammar and punctuation.

Any problems let me know,

Thank you

Spelling Quiz

Today I gave the children 10 spellings to explore and practise..

I am giving them a quick quiz tomorrow on these words,

Here they are if they want to do extra practise, but no pressure.












It was lovely to chat to so many of you on Monday at parent meetings. Many of you asked how you can help at home. So we have attached the spellings lists from year one up to year six. These are words the children should know at the different age groups. It would be great if you could look at these words with your children. Would be good revision to do the year one and year two words as well as the harder ones.

Ideas to help you practise:

Look cover write check

Mnemonics = for example: because – big elephants can always understand small elephants

Break the word up using different colours

Word searches

Write the words in sentences


All these ways the children have learnt at school.

We will be using these words for future tests, so it will be great practise to pick a few words each week to try and learn.

Thank you

Mrs Quigley and Miss Horton
