Year 6 have never been more excited about spelling! They tried out Spelling Shed for the first time today, exploring the website and the variety of games they can play on there which help improve spelling in a fun, engaging, challenging way. We logged in and practised spelling through dictation, hang-man style games and much more. What made it even more exciting was that the children realised that Year 4 are currently at the top of the school leader board and we thought we might need to do something about that (but shhh...don't tell Year 4!). The children can log in any time on a tablet, phone or computer and earn coins to move the class up the school leader board as well as themselves in our Year 6 leader board. With the theme of bees, the children can also earn pots of honey which links to their 'earnings balance'. Please speak to your child so they can explain how the program works once they have logged in at home with you. Homework will also be set on Spelling Shed but we will continue to have written practise sessions in school. Keep up the hard work, Year 6 and let's catch Year 4!!
