How Writing is taught

Writing Long Term Plan


We are now using Spelling Shed from Reception up to Year 6. The link below gives more information on how to use this. Our children love ‘Spelling Shed’ as it brings the fun factor to spellings. All children have an online username and password which can be provided from their class teacher, should they lose it!

Each week, spellings are set online by the class teacher for children to access either in school or at home. Children can earn ‘honey pots’ and rewards, pushing them up the leader board and encouraging friendly competition between them and their peers. We recommend starting with 'Easy' mode and gradually progressing up to 'Extreme'.

Spelling Shed Guidance 

We also recommend practicing Spellings by writing them too. Some activity ideas are below of more fun ways to do this. Your child's teacher will check regularly to see how your child is getting on with the Spellings they are practicing at home and there are regular opportunities throughout the week to practice these at school.
