I've finally taken the plunge and had a go at using Spelling City. This is a great website which is designed to help children to practise their spellings.
Inspired by http://www.spellingcity.com/mrbarberturnham/ I created an account for our school and uploaded the spellings for the SATs spelling tests from 1996 to 2009.
The process was very easy to do - literally, as easy as typing in the words. The site then creates a sentence which uses the word to put it in context.
The children can go to the site and practice the spellings. Words are read out for them to spell! Simple, yet brilliant!
