In the picture above, the answer to “silence” is “quiet”. You can change your level to more difficult words if you are finding it too easy!

Here are some great games that can assist you with your understanding of sentences, spelling and punctuation. They are produced by the BBC http://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/ks2/ I enjoyed playing these games and so will you! Let me know what you think.
School A-Z is a great app for practising your spelling words and times tables. It also has some help paged that will assist you with your homework and the topics being taught in class.
It has been produced by NSW Department of Education and Communities. I highly recommend this app for home.
It’s available at the App Store and on Google Play. Best of all it’s FREE!
Today we brainstormed our spelling words for our phonemes of the week, ‘a’ as in apple and ‘o’ as in go. We used our iPads in small groups to brainstorm different graphemes for each phoneme and then we listed lots of word for each phoneme. After we listed lots of words we then emailed our lists to Mrs S and Mrs B. We then used Wordle to put all of our lists together. This is what we created.
Short ‘a’ words
Long ‘o’ words
