National Curriculum Spelling

Each week, usually on a Friday, children will complete a Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar test.

Children are asked to learn all of the spellings from the list, but will only be tested on approximately three of them.

The format of the short test will be as follows:

I will dictate three sentences to the children which they they will write down. I then  mark not only their spelling accuracy, but also the accuracy of their punctuation and grammar. 

Spelling Lists

I am delighted to have uploaded the Cavendish Class Spelling Bee PowerPoint that we have started to use in class. Who is the best speller in your family? Start at a randomly selected slide and see who comes out on top!
