Spelling at Walmer

As part of our ongoing struggle towards improving the literacy levels at our school, we have started to increase the focus on spelling. 

Learners are currently doing weekly spelling tests to help them improve their spelling and English writing.

Since last year our learners have also participated in the well-known GrowSmart Spelling Competitions.  Parents are advised to visit the Growsmart website (http://growsmart.org.za/index.html) to find more infomation regarding these competitions and to download their newspapers (http://growsmart.org.za/growsmart-downloads-2013.htm).  All the words tested during the competitions, are from these newspapers.
