Enter the word you'd like to have in your custom spelling list. Select the Active checkbox and ensure the spelling is assigned to the correct year group. You also have the option to add a sentence. This is optional, but we recommend you do this, as it really helps children understand and spell the word in context of a sentence. Then select continue to save the spelling.

Once you've created the spelling, it will appear in the year group you've assigned it to. When the spelling is initially created there is a short delay while the Spell Wizards system fetches the spoken spelling, and if added, a spoken sentence. This process usually takes 10-15mins, but we recommend your wait at least 1 hour to fetch and assign the spoken spellings.

Continue to add spellings for your custom spelling list and remember to assign the spelling to the correct year group. If you incorrectly assign the spelling to the wrong year group, you can Edit the spelling and change the year group assignment.

Once the spoken spellings are fetched, you will see the playback button next to each spelling. If you have also assigned a sentence to the spelling the spoken sentence will also be shown. Click on the play button to listen to the spoken spelling and sentence (if applicable). You're done and your child(ren) can now use the new custom spelling list.
