When supporting your child with their learning each evening, be sure to quiz them about their spellings:

  • Does your child know what their spellings are?
  • Can your child spot a pattern in their spellings?
  • Which words are they most unsure of?
  • What ways could you make a spelling easier to remember?

Parents’ evening is approaching, so if you’re unsure how best to support your child’s learning be sure to pick my brains during your appointment!
