Hopefully you have all received your Spelling Shed login details. Spelling Shed is an online game where you can practise your spelling.

There are three kinds of game:

  • Practice – This is the main game type and use used for assignments etc.
  • Bee Keeper – Can you guess your words by choosing letters.
  • Buzz Words – Make words using random letter tiles.

Practice Games have four difficulties:

  • Easy – The word is shown, an audio clip is played and only the included letters are shown.
  • Medium – An audio clip is played and only the included letters are shown.
  • Hard – an audio clip is played and the included letters plus some random letters are shown.
  • Extreme – An audio clip is played and a full qwerty keyboard is shown. Letters must be correctly accented and capitalised.

Honeypots are earned by spelling words correctly in all game types. Additional upgrades can be purchased using honeypots. A bit like TT Rockstars, where you can buy things for your character.

I have set an assignment for you to play, which meansthat the words it is testing you on are the Y3/4 spelling words. This will run up until half term.

Here is a quick summary of what to do: Spelling Shed instructions

You can play on Spelling Shed on a computer, or you could download the app on to a tablet or mobile.

Have fun!
