Daily Spelling Practice with Spellingframe

Spellingframe includes all the words - both statutory and the example words - from the National Curriculum for Spelling for Year 1 to Year 6. Choose a spelling rule and each word is read aloud and provided within a sentence for context. Pupils can choose to practise a set of words, take a test, or play a game. If they choose to practise they will see and hear the word broken down into syllables and will then be given a series of activities to help them to memorise the spelling. The activities develop increasing independence. If a pupil then spells the word correctly, they move on to the next word. If they make a mistake, they repeat the process to help them to learn the word. If a pupil chooses to be tested, they receive instant feedback. If they make a mistake, they are shown the correct spelling and given a series of activities to help them to remember. 

Daily Mental Maths Practice 

We advise the ‘little and often’ approach to practising mental maths skills, for example, practising number bonds on a car journey or reciting multiplication tables during a walk. The number facts set must be learnt by heart and with immediate recall, rather than allowing the child the opportunity to work the answer out in their head.

The following website are fantastic resources to support children to develop their mental maths skills. 

Recap Place Value knowledge with an engaging activity where pupils will solve a series of questions and crack a code to find the punchline to a joke.
