Spelling

At Wheatfield we recognise that spelling is one part of what makes a good writer and that, whilst some children may find spelling challenging, with the right support most will become proficient spellers during their time with us.

Below are a number of resources for families to download and use to support their child with spelling at home. If you have any questions about how to use these, please speak with your child's class teacher.

Year 6 SATs Spelling Lists

At the end of Year 6, as part of their SATs, children are tested on 20 words. This list shows all the words which have appeared in previous tests. This is not intended as a list of words to learn - it has been put together to indicate the level of difficulty of the test and the type of vocabulary expected of Year 6 children.
