To encourage children to learn the Y3/4 and Y5/6 word lists set out in the National Curriculum, we have developed an engaging spelling challenge for children to achieve - Pointless Spellings!
Based on the hit TV show - Pointless - where the aim is to get the lowest score possible, in these spelling tests, children have to make the fewest number of mistakes possible!
Each word is spelt phonetically correctly but contains several errors, so children must develop strategies to learn tricky words off by heart. See the Spelling Policy on the previous page to see the strategies children are taught to use in our school.
Each level gets progressively more difficult and children can earn certificates to celebrate their successes.
Can YOU get a Pointless score?
