Spelling is hugely important as a skill for life. We encourage all learners to refine their spelling by practising at home. A useful activity at home is to test your child on commonly misspelled words. We will be holding spelling bees as a way to celebrate students’ learning.

Commonly Misspelled Words

We hope that you find these resources a useful addition to your home routine for your child. It is advised that you find a quiet space for students to complete their extended learning activities, away from noise and distraction. If you do not have access to a computer at home, you can visit your local library where there will be IT facilities that can be used by young people.
