Monday 22nd June to Monday 6th July
We know the children are enjoying using the new Spellodrome programme that we purchased this year. More importantly, it is having a positive impact on developing and reinforcing their spelling skills. They can use it at home and at school, using the same password as they have for Mathletics. Spellodrome will also be able to be accessed on tablets soon too. Like Mathletics, the teachers can set specific groups of words for the children to work on for the activities on the site, based on what has been taught in the classroom. It is also a great assessment tool - enabling us to see how the children are progressing with the particular set/s of words that they are working. We also have an excellent facility within Spellodrome that allows us to set diagnostic spelling tests and use this information to analyse errors and inform our teaching, enabling us to address gaps and next teaching steps. It is closely linked to the curriculum and aligned to their particular ability level, so enables the children to reinforce and consolidate their learning in a fun and enjoyable way which motivates them.
Therefore, we would very much like to continue to provide this facility for your children.
