She is seven and loves reading but her spelling is very, very funny. She read a book about the Gunpowder Plot which apparently was masterminded by one Guy Forks. She also read a book about an averlanch (avalanche) which involved buried treasher.
Do other seven-year-olds spell this creatively or is it just her?

Bump because I have parents' evening on Tuesday and would like to know if it is something I need to raise with the teacher or not.

Thanks. DD2 has a very different learning style to DDs 1 & 3 who both appear to have a very good visual memory for words - as do I - so rarely spell anything wrong. DD2 is more aural hence the phonetic spelling I suppose.
