5 – 18 year olds: The spelling activities on this US site are for children aged 5 in September (Grade 1) up to age 17 in September (Grade 10). The primary age activities are good exercises for KS1 and KS2 spelling SATs in England as they follow a similar format. The more advanced spellings for older children would also be a challenge for some of our more able spellers.
