Interesting Fact - Spelling

According to research carried out by Oxford University Press, British children are struggling to write “simple, everyday words”.

(They are failing to spot the difference between words like “their” and “there” or “cloths” and “clothes”, to pick out silent letters or spot the difference between a single or double letter word.

The top spelling error was "accidentally", closely followed by "practising", “frantically” "definitely" and "believe".

Other common misspellings included words such as “surprise”, "excitement", "weird", "doesn't" and "minute”.

I can see I'm going to have to add some more spelling tests to the site.)
