The spellings in these booklets are taken from the English National Curriculum for Year 6.
The material has been carefully organized to reflect the progress of students over two years and to allow for revision of spellings from previous years. The statutory-word lists for Years 5 and 6 have been shared between the two years and all will have been covered by the end of Year 6.
The booklets contain either 10 or 11 sets of weekly spellings which use the Look, Say, Cover, Write, Check method. They are available in a choice of print, a joined cursive or continuous cursive fonts to aid handwriting. The word puzzles are linked to each of the spellings and can be used as homework or extension activities for their reinforcement. Dictations are also available and can be used as either dictation exercises or spelling tests.
The spellings (and definitions) used in the Spellzoo resources are taken from the Oxford University Press, Primary dictionary. This is the current version.
Schools may order the resources from here.
