The Spelling Shed

All children from Year 1 to Year 6 have a log in for the Spelling Shed.


What is The Spelling Shed?


Designed by educators, the Spelling Shed encourages the development of critical spelling awareness.  The Spelling Shed allows pupils to practise their weekly spellings, we well as previously taught spelling patterns and statutory words for their age group, using a variety of engaging and challenging activities.  They can earn points and certificates for continued interaction and correct responses in the games.


How to get the most out of it


Regular spelling practise helps children to build their vocabulary and feel more confident with their writing, allowing them to write more freely and imaginatively.   With your help and encouragement, your child can understand the importance of practising their spellings.  Ideally, pupils should spend a short time every day using either the 'look, cover, write, check' sheet or accessing the games and activities available on the Spelling Shed.  In addition to weekly set spellings, the more they use the program to revise previously learnt spelling patterns, the more confident they will feel in continuing to use these words in their every day writing.
