Spring Term Spelling and Handwriting Sheets

All spelling sheets for the first half of the Spring Term 2021, sorted by year group can be found by clicking on the links below. These sheets will allow children to practise the spellings they would have received in school over this half term at home. The sheets also double up as handwriting practice - Year 1 and 2 can practise forming their pre-cursive lettering, while Years 3-6 can practise that lovely joined-up continuous cursive handwriting!

As an extension, how about turning the sheets over and writing your own imaginative sentences containing each spelling to aid comprehension on the back? For instance, for the words listed to the right just above:

'The school community were determined to stay positive during the lockdown.'

'The main purpose of Tom's existence was to chase Jerry.'

'As we had studied fractions before half term, today's work seemed quite familiar.'

'The reporter continued to harass the celebrity.'

'The police needed to confirm the identity of the suspect.'

Give it a go! Don't forget those capital letters and full stops, and remember that your sentences need to make sense!
