Accurate spelling is a hugely important part of writing. 


If there are mistakes in a text, it can limit the enjoyment a reader gets from your work. 


Some mistakes in spelling can completely change the meaning of a sentence too!


In this activity, you will look at some writing with errors and work to identify and correct them - just as you would do with your own writing.
