Spelling Lists

We have now worked through all of the spelling rules for the year. You should now use this time to revisit old spellings you found tricky or choose from the high frequency/ tricky word lists below. Remember, the true test is how you apply these spellings in your writing. Choose between 7-10 spellings to learn each week and practise them creatively and use them in whole sentences too. Remember,  practise make PERMANENT
