Years 5 & 6, National Curriculum Words

This section contains a further, slightly trickier, 100 statutory words that children must be taught as part of the UK National Curriculum. Our pre-recorded tests including these words can be downloaded for use in our Squeebles Spelling Test app. Just download the app and then download any tests that you'd like to use from within the parent / teacher zone within the app. 

Key: Words with an asterisk (*) after them are set to be case sensitive in the test. Old Ref Code refers to now obsolete download codes that some of our older users may be familiar with - we've retained them here just in case they're helpful for reference, but new customers should ignore them.
