Tips for helping your child learn their spellings

We suggest children learn their spellings using the 'Look, Cover, Write, Check' method. This encourages your child to 'see' and 'hear' the word, and to see for themselves if it is right.

  • Look at a spelling word.
  • Cover the spelling word.
  • Visualise the covered word in the mind.
  • Write the word from memory.
  • Check what has been written with the uncovered word.

Below are links to the spelling lists for each year group.
