Reading

Spellings

Like reading, Spelling is very important for your writing. Spellodrome will have targeted spelling lists each week linking to the lessons in class. Challenge yourself and see how many points you can earn!

Over the next 3 weeks you must complete an activity/series of activities that total at least 20 points. How you choose to do so is up to you! For example, you may choose to do one fifteen and a five-point activity or you could do two ten points; you could also choose to do four five-point activities – it is completely your choice!
