Welcome to Goodeyedeers - the home of quality resources for primary teachers. Visit us and check out some great ideas. I'm Mike Jackson, a former primary headteacher. I've teamed up with a fellow retiree David Horner who was a freelance children's poet delivering poetry workshops to children and teachers in schools across this country and abroad. Between us, we bring an extensive wealth of knowledge and experience to the task of creating quality resources.

This powerpoint presentation introduces the children to the idea of ‘Spelling Riddles’. They are shown a couple of examples and then Hetti shows them how to make their own using the spellings from the Year 5/6 Word List.

Children like a chance to ask the questions! Along with the exclusive concern with the Word List words, the focus is wholly on the child's learning of the words - crucially learning by doing. Initially solving and then creating riddles keeps the child curious, in control and mentally active. 

The presentation also introduces them to Hetti from Planet SPaG, who talks about her love of words. Did you know Hetti was able to digest and learn the whole list in just 7 seconds!

Included in the package is a copy of the Year 5/6 Word List and a photocopiable grid to help the children create their own Spelling Riddles.
