Many parents have asked for support in helping their child with their spelling.  Here is a list for words which have been split into separate weeks to make it easier to learn.  “Little and often” is a good way to become an effective speller.

Spelling List!

The spellings are colour coded to show which words have occurred in SATs spelling tests on one or more occasions!  We will not be testing your child formally on these words, but they need to learn them so that they can confidently use them within their written work each day and in the SAT test in May.

Parents: please encourage and support your son or daughter to spend time each evening to practise and learn the new spelling lists week by week.
