Thursday 21st October - 'Wear it Red Day'

Today was 'Wear it Red Day' in school to raise awareness for 'Dyslexia Awareness Month'. The children were invited to wear Red to school and make a contribution for the British Dyslexia Foundation. In our classes, we explored what dyslexia was and completed some 'Red' activities to celebrate this day. Take a look below at some of the things we got up to in school:

Some classes recited famous poems and others became poets performing their own poems. Take a look look below at each year group\'s amazing performance:

Spelling and word knowledge are key components in the process of learning to read and write. Spelling Shed makes the learning of these key skills fun and engaging for pupils.

The Spelling Shed scheme aligns with the English National Curriculum and, as the scheme is fully editable, it can be used alongside the existing spelling schemes that we use at St. Philip's.  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 or homework.  

Here at St. Philip's, our classes have been competing against each other to see who can earn the most points on Spelling Shed and claim the weekly trophy!  Click on image above to see how our classes are performing!
