Spelling is a core skill for children at all learning levels, yet is one that many children struggle with throughout their education. Building great spelling habits and skills at an early age will help them across all their learning and into adult life. However, we know how difficult getting your child to improve their spelling can be. This section of our website provides you with grade-based pages that explain all about the spelling standards expected of children at different grade levels, and how you can help your child attain them.

We run through Grades 1-6, identifying the key focuses of spelling at each level, from spelling patterns, to homophones, to word families, to dictionary usage, and many more. Practice tips are included to provide practical ways that you can help your child improve their spelling.
