Handwriting

Weekly Spellings

Read the words and identify what is ‘tricky’ about them.

Use the ‘look, write, check’ method to practice spelling the word. Other good strategies include using fridge magnets, looking out for the word in a reading book or rainbow writing where you repeat writing out the word using as many different colours as you can.

Practice improving your handwriting by copying out the spellings.
