Spelling and comprehension at aged 6.

Yesterday my 6 yo old G'daughter asked me to do some spelling tests with her.... I was astonished at her ability to deal, in her head, with words like "occasionally" and "relatively" and much harder words.
So smarty pants G'dad said " when do you use their and there"?
"Easy G'dad...their when it belongs to them....there when it is about a place". Crikey!!
Next weeks test will be about usage of "number of" and "amount of".....something which seems to defeat lots of so called intelligent journalists!
