Here are the statutory word-lists for years 3 and 4 and years 5 and 6. The lists are a mixture of words children frequently use in their writing and those which they often misspell. For children to achieve the Year 6 age-related expectation, they must be able to spell these words in their writing.
In addition to the statutory word-lists, the government have also produced a list of statutory spelling patterns that should be taught. On a Monday, the children will receive a list of spellings to learn. These can be found in the documents below.
People learn in different ways. Below are some strategies that might help you learn your spellings. Give them a try - you might be surprised.
