Spellings make up a percentage of marks in some tests so it’s important to learn them early and not lose marks on spellings.
The best way to remember your spellings is the look, say, cover, write, check method. Regularly practising this way will improve spellings.
Practice your spellings for four days then get someone to test you on the fifth day without looking at the words first.
- If you find the spellings difficult in your year then try starting with spellings from the year below.
- It’s ok to work lower than the year you are on and fill the gaps rather than struggling at your level without understanding the basics.
