These PDF worksheets, covering statutory spelling words for years 3 and 4, are an excellent way for children in LKS2 to revise and practise spelling these words.

This resource focuses on the statutory spelling words that contain the letter ‘c’ and explores the different sounds that this letter can make in words (recent, circle, certain, decide, exercise, special, medicine, accident, centre, century, experience, notice, bicycle).

The worksheets include five different activities in which children look at spelling patterns, identify misspelt words and apply their spellings in context. They can be used within lessons, as an assessment or as a homework task.

This primary resource is divided into five sections:

Tips

Tick which words are spelt correctly

Check

Circle the words that are spelt correctly, and place the words into the correct sentences

Use

Use the images, and the words underneath, to write a sentence about each

Change

Read each sentence and change the underlined word or phrase for a new word, which should be one of the Year 3/4 statutory spelling words

Apply

Write a description of the picture, trying to use as many of the words listed as possible

What are statutory spelling words?

The statutory spelling words, listed in English Appendix 1: Spelling, are words that pupils should learn in years 3/4 and years 5/6. These lists contain a mixture of words pupils frequently use in their writing and those which pupils often misspell.
