Year 7 Spelling Log


Designed by Archbishop Blanch School, every Year 7 student has their own personal spelling log.  The log is a personal dictionary and record, which should help to improve spelling at all levels.  It has five different coloured sections:


Red:     The personal dictionary for recording key words and words your child

              finds difficult;

Blue:    A reference list of general and subject-specific words, which are

              commonly misspelt;

Yellow:  A list of different strategies to assist spelling and memory;

Green:   A selection of spelling games;

Red:       A have-a-go pad for spelling tests and for spelling attempts.


Your daughter should have her spelling log in school every day to record spellings either given by her teachers or spellings she herself finds difficult.  We would be grateful if parents could go through the log with her and encourage her to use it as much as possible.


From this year, there will be a stronger emphasis on spelling in the marking of all GCSE and A-Level examination papers.  We hope the spelling log will highlight and help improve this important aspect of literacy.
