I like how much it engages the pupils. The competitive element has boosted the morale of many of my pupils with dyslexia and the repetitiveness has really helped them.

Used Spelling Shed for Since September when I had convinced the literacy co-ordinator o subscribe.

Spelling Shed is very popular in my class. I have made a big thing about it, so the children enjoy the competition through school, For the majority of the year we have been top of the leader board. Children enjoy it and like the spelling tests online as they can see straight away if they are right.

Used Spelling Shed for 15months?

Jul 2019

Ian Addison found Spelling Shed:
  • Moderately improves attainment
    Children are more eager to learn their spellings. The online games and tests encourage them to keep trying and they have been really engaged.
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    Having a whole spelling scheme has helped us massively. Our previous spelling scheme had ideas but didn't provide resources but Shed does. This has helped me organise weeks worth of spellings in minutes.
  • Slightly saves school money
  • Moderately provides school data
    It has helped to improve the summative assessment of spelling in my class. I have a good handle on how well my children can spell (in tests) and we use this alongside the spellings in their books and in their writing.
