Matlida's Splendid Spelling Game aims to aid both Key Stage 1 and 2 learning through play, the set contains three educational and creative spelling games featuring one of Roald Dahl’s Matilda. These fun-packed games will help children develop spelling and word building skills.

Game 1: The Bookworm Game
To win collect 10 bookworm cards for Matilda by creating words from your hand of cards.  A three letter word would be worth 1 bookworm card the longer the word the more you can win. 

Game 2: Matilda’s Word Grid Game
Create as many words as you can in one minute.  16 cards are laid out in a 4 by 4 grid on the table, letter side up and the timer is started. All the players then write down as many words as they can make up using the 16 letters on the grid. The player with the most correctly spelt words wins that round and takes a Bookworm card. The first player to collect 5 Bookworm cards wins the game. 

Game 3: Matilda’s Wordstack Game
Each player starts with 10 cards face up, 5 additional cards are then dealt face up in the middle known as the stack.  Each player then takes it in turns to add letters from their own cards to the stack to form a word.  The longer the word the more bookworm cards that are won! Players can add a letter on top of another letter to change a word for example, with the word NOW, a G can be added in front and an R can be added on top of the N to create GROW. Adding a letter on top of an existing letter scores an extra point. The first player to win 10 Bookworm cards wins the game.

 Each of the three creative spelling games have been designed for 2 to 4 players and suitable for age 6 years and over.
