Spellzone March Round-up

blog home


Here is a round up of our Coronavirus-related updates:

  • March has been a strange month for all of us. In this uncertain and frightening time, we have found it so inspiring to watch our online educational community pull together. Please continue sending your homeschooling photos to us on Facebook and Twitter. They are really making our day.
     
  • During this time, we want to do our best to support you and your teaching and learning needs. We are here to help. If you have any questions, or need assistance setting your staff and students up for remote learning, you can contact us here
     
  • You can find out more about how you can use Spellzone while schools are closed here and find a list of ideas for keeping on top of your learning while at home here
     

We have done our best to continue publishing new educational content as normal. Here is a round-up of what we shared: 

  • This month’s trio of Commonly Confused Words were threw, through, and thorough. Not sure the difference? Click here for tips and tricks to help you tell them apart.
     
  • For our 10 Words post featured the word very. We use the word very to emphasise the description that follows it. Here are 10 other ways to emphasise an idea.
     
  • It’s spring cleaning season, so this month’s Idioms feature is about all things sweeping, dusting, and polishing. From elbow grease, to spick and span, to a clean break, learn what different cleaning idioms mean here
     
  • We tried something new for our Word for Wednesday feature and chose each week’s word to fit around the theme of punctuation. We looked at four different punctuation-related words in March: apostrophe, parenthesis, comma, and hyphen

Here at Spellzone we want every school in England to be able to afford the learning resources needed to support its pupils. That’s why we are supporting the #ResourceOurSchools campaign. You can learn more about them here
