Spelling Challenges

We have put the following challenges together from the National Curriculum statutory word lists for year 3 to 6. These words may/may not be included in the weekly spellings that have been given out by your child’s teacher. You do not need to learn them all at once, but if you have a chance, you may like to focus on a few words at a time.
