Our wanderings in Wiltshire went off with a whizz today at Wilton and Barford Primary School , where we were joined by pupils and staff from the other schools in the cluster, prior to tomorrows’s cluster INSET Day.
Thank you to Jan Nock, headteacher at Wilton and Barford for inviting us in to spend some time with her colleagues, children and visitors, for some fun with words, and a lot of (hardly noticeable but incredibly powerful) technology.
For some wondrous (alliterative) wordy witterings…
The Fry list of 1000 words are “the most frequently used words for reading and writing” listed in rank order.
Kristy Cofer’s site offers the chance to test reading of the words, and for children to listen to the (first three hundred) words and have a go at spelling them.
A good assessment tool and a chance to revise these spellings too?
