  • Useful for my older learners. I need to work out what to do to prepare them, so they have the knowledge to tackle this.

  • Hi, Thank you for creating yet another lovely resource. I have used it to stretch the more able spellers with difficult words. However, I've noticed a few slight errors and omissions on some of the sheets.

    On the sheet beginning with Ben Sharp I've noticed a couple of words spelt incorrectly that have not been picked up on in the answer sheet.
    4. Witch - which
    6. busness- business
    9. wich - which

    Sheet beginning 'Is it possable'
    1. possable - possible

    Sheet beginnning Oh it's no problem
    1. accomadate - accommodate
    3. cemetary - cemetery
    10. dosent - doesn't
    10. on - one

    Also, in question 10 on the last sheet above, there should be a comma after spuds followed by a lower case letter for whispered.
    'Give Tim the rest of the spuds', whispered Gertrude. 'He's the only one who doesn't mind peeling them.'

    Hope this is of help to you.
