  • 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.

      Thank you for spotting this mistake! Our lovely teacher and design teams have corrected it and emailed the fixed resource to you. It will also be updated on the website within 48 hours, and you can find it either as a main resource, or under 'Alternative versions' above.
