At Jewell Academy, Spelling Shed is a tool used to support the teaching and learning of Spelling. Children can access games and spelling lists via the Spelling Shed website.
Please ask class teachers for children’s individual logins.
Spelling and word knowledge are key components in the process of learning to read and write. Spelling Shed makes the acquisition of these key skills fun and engaging for pupils and easy to plan for teachers.
The game aspect of Spelling Shed ensures children are engaged and eager to practise their spellings regularly. The low-stakes games, quizzes and reward systems ensure that children find spelling fun. The games can be played in class or assigned for home learning, making them perfect for in-school learning, homework or a hybrid model which many schools now use.
As well as spelling, there are various components across the platform with teaching resources and activities for phonics, vocabulary, grammar and punctuation. The teaching slides for spelling, grammar and punctuation fully cover the National Curriculum across the primary range, and we have a full phonics and reading programme on their way to complement these.
