January Round-up 2021

blog home

How has your first month of 2021 been? We hope you've had a chance to explore our website. Perhaps you've worked on your course pathway? Or practised your spelling using a word list?

Here’s everything we shared in January:

  • For our first Commonly Confused Words blog post of the year, we looked at the words new and knew. Do you know when to use each word? Learn tips and tricks to help you tell them apart here
  • This year, we’re starting a new monthly blog feature called 3 Word Lists. Our 3 word lists for January were Words from Scotland, Silent K Words, and Wh- Question Words. Read more about this month’s lists here.
  • We returned to our 10 Words feature this month with 10 alternatives for the word small. From miniature to weeny, we’ve got the right word for you.  
  • Our Word for Wednesday theme this month was colours. How did red, orange, yellow, and green get their names?​​​​​​

Is there anything you’d like to see on the blog? Let us know!

"Thank goodness for Spellzone during this remote learning phase. The site is easy for students to navigate independently and they're really enjoying the activities and spelling games. You get an awful lot for your money with Spellzone. Really reassuring is the very prompt response with helpdesk queries. I've very rarely needed the helpdesk, but when I have, the issue has been addressed and sorted within a very short time."
