Help children to master and revise Y6 spelling patterns, plus more ambitious vocabulary, with these word search activities.
There are six different word searches in this pack.
One version provides a list of the words pupils are looking for, while in a more challenging version children have to find the words without guidance. They are also asked to identify the spelling patterns.
A second worksheet features activities to help children explore the spelling patterns and vocabulary further, and in different contexts.
Teacher notes are also included

Use further prefixes and suffixes and understand the guidance for adding them
Spell some words with ‘silent’ letters [for example, knight, psalm, solemn]

Use knowledge of morphology and etymology in spelling and understand that the spelling of some words needs to be learnt specifically, as listed in English Appendix 1
Use dictionaries to check the spelling and meaning of words
Use the first three or four letters of a word to check spelling, meaning or both of these in a dictionary
