High Frequency Words: A Spelling Aid for Students of English

Image result for spellingDear Parents/Students,

Please find attached a list of high-frequency words or ‘common’ words in English. These are words that are used every day in writing and speaking. All students of English would benefit greatly from knowing how to say and spell this list of words. Although many of the words may seem too simple to warrant extra attention, it is our experience in correcting your child’s written work that these small words often pose greater problems than the more ‘difficult’ words.

This is an optional download for parents and students. This is NOT a homework exercise and will not be graded or corrected by the English team. It is simply offered as a learning aid for your children to use at home, should you wish to use it. We advise that your child works through the list of words in their own time, practising the spelling and reading of these words. Perhaps you can incorporate five words into their study sessions? Or ten words at the weekend? It will benefit their writing, build on their confidence and improve their grades in school tests.

Thank you,

The English Team

Your English teacher will be posting a revision outline before the holidays. Please read it carefully and start revising! The more time you put into revision work, the easier it will be when you take your exam. Your efforts will be rewarded with a better mark!

Happy studying!


Mr Carey’s CM group – For 10th December

Dear Students,

For next week’s spelling test, please study these words using the spelling sheet provided (or on a sheet of paper if you prefer). Write an interesting sentence for each word. The words are all past tense irregular verbs. Remember to cover and practise the words three times, do not just copy them as this will not help you to learn them by heart.



I look forward to reading your sentences!


Thank you,

Mr Carey
