Why practise spelling?
There's no doubt about it: Spelling is important. Even when it is not explicitly tested, it is assessed in writing. So we turned spelling practice into a fun and engaging pastime.
Practising spelling through a variety of activities ensures that kids will spell words correctly while writing. And when kids know how to spell, their confidence in the classroom soars!

"I am a tutor for 7+, 8+ and 11+ exams. This series of booklets comprises both Targeted and Mixed Spelling Practice for Years 1 to 6. The Targeted Practice books should be used before the Mixed Practice books and introduce the spelling patterns and rules. They cover the entire curriculum for their respective year group, and can be used at school or home for weekly lessons or a faster pace for catch up curriculum. The spelling packs are illustrated throughout with the ten colourful characters that are well known in the Mrs Wordsmith family of books."
