I Can Spell Beyond KS2

October 16, 2017

 

‘What do we do for children who consistently score 10 on the year 5 and 6 pre-tests?’ is a question I am frequently asked.  Merely saying,

 

‘Wow!’ is not really very helpful so currently under construction are I Can Spell extension sheets.

 

If a child is already able to accurately write words like ‘fictitious’, ‘embarrass’ and ‘environment’, they clearly have few issues with spelling (and can spell better than most adults).  So what do we do?

 

The answer is to build their vocabulary at the same time.  The I Can Spell Beyond KS2 are designed to stretch very able spellers and develop a vocabulary that will be with them for life.

 

‘Mr Sidebottom, these children are being very obstreperous today.’

 

‘That could be correct, Tarquin.  Remind me, what does obstreperous actually mean?’

 

*definitions are included!
