Spelling games for kids

Spelling Reception

Spelling Reception EYFS. Support on spelling for kids with Super Brainy Beans. Primary homework help with worksheet downloads and online games.

Pick a level

Try the spellings for your level. If you find they are too difficult, try the spellings for the year below. It's ok to work lower than the year you are on and fill the gaps in what you know rather than struggling at your level without understanding the basics.




Spelling in Reception

Spelling starts after the phonic sounds are learnt, and when your child is able to write the letters.

Play with magnetic letters on the fridge or sponge letters in the bath is a great way of getting your child to find out how the letter sounds go together to make words.

Learning spellings

The best way to remember your spellings is the look, say, cover, write, check method. Regually practicing this way will improve your spellings.
Look Say Cover Write Check Spellings

 

Practice your spellings for four days then get someone to test you on the fifth day without looking at the words first.
