Spelling Resources

Spellingframe includes all the words - both statutory and the example words - from the National Curriculum for Spelling for Year 1 to Year 6. Children can choose a spelling rule and each word is read aloud and provided within a sentence for context.

Students can choose to practise a set of words, take a test, or play a game with those words (games are available to registered users only). If they choose to practise they will see and hear the word broken down into syllables (phonemes for the Y1 words) and will then be given a series of activities to help them to memorise the spelling. The activities develop increasing independence. If a student then spells the word correctly they move on to the next word. If they make a mistake they repeat the process to help them to learn the word. Spellingframe should work on all devices.
