Today, why not learn how to spell these tricky words. Or, if you think you already know them, get an adult or older sibling to test you! This blog post tells you some fun ways to practise spellings:

  • grammar
  • group
  • guard

Spelling: Practise your weekly spelling words: gardening, gardened, limited, limiting, developing, developed, listening, listened, covered, covering
