Stuck for ideas on supporting your children with spellings? Have a look at the ideas and apps that are recommended by Hertfordshire specialist teachers in the PDF titled “Supporting your child with spellings”. Children of NHS workers can also access free accounts on the TTRS (Touch Type Read and Spell) program during school closure. This is a dyslexia friendly touch typing program that simultaneously overlearns spellings (only uses real words) and gradually introduces typing short sentences. You would need to contact them directly to organise this. (BBC do their own touch typing programme which is free https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zf2f9j6/articles/z3c6tfr but this is not linked with spellings.)

 

Please don’t forget to continue logging into Timestablerockstars and practising your tables!

The class teachers are:

  • Miss Connolly and Mr Harvey
