Spellings

This half-term, the children will be using their 'Shake rattle and roll' books, spelling patterns we look at and the statutory year 5/6 spelling words to create their own spelling lists to practise each week.

 

Statutory words we have learnt so far:

awkward thorough sincerely aggressive excellent embarrass
           
           
           
           

 

 

Autumn 1

 

Each child will have their individual spelling list in their yellow home learning journals. They should practise these before their spelling test on Mondays. Their individual spelling list will be formed from their work in English, spelling patterns we are looking at in spelling lessons and the statutory spellings that Year 5 have to learn.

 

In class, we are learning various new strategies to support learning their spellings.

 

Week Beginning 16th September 2019

This week we have been looking at the various words that have silent letters (graphemes). For example: numb, doubt, island, lamb and knight. Each child will have chosen five 'silent letter' words for their individual spelling list. They will also have on their list the following statutory words: excellent and embarrass. They will be tested on these on Monday 23rd September.

 

Week Beginning 9th September 2019

 

This week we have been looking at the various sounds (phonemes) that the letters (graphemes) 'ough' make. For example: cough, bough, through, thorough and tough. Each child will have chosen three 'ough' words for their individual spelling list. They will also have on their list the following statutory words: thorough, awkward, sincerely and aggressive. They will be tested on these on Monday 16th September.
