Spelling

Have a go at writing them out 3 times every morning, then on Friday see if you can spell them correctly. You could write your own sensible or silly sentences, draw pictures to help you remember them or perhaps try a spelling scribble like the one below.  Keep us updated on Dojo - we 'd love to hear about how well your spelling is going. Please also continue to practice spellings from your personalised list and the Year, 2, 3 and 4 Common Exception Words (at the bottom of the page).
