KEY STAGE 3 SPELLING LISTS

 

The following lists of spellings have been completed by individual departments for their specific subject.

 

Students should already be able to spell most of the words, but it is recommended that from Year 7 onwards, students should be helped to learn those spellings about which they are still uncertain.

 

Many of these spellings will be taught in lessons. However, spellings need to be frequently revisited to ensure they are remembered.

 

In order to help your child, you could test them on a set of spellings on a regular basis throughout Key Stage 3. Those that they have difficulty with should be re-visited frequently.

Thank you.
