Every two weeks your child will be given a new set of spellings to learn.


The first week they will asked to practise the spellings using the spelling pattern and practising their handwriting also.


The second week your child will be asked to (in their neatest handwriting) choose some of the words and put them into sentences.


I give extra dojos for children that go 'Over and Above'.

Ideas of going 'Over and Above' might be -

trying to put more than one of their spellings in the sentence

trying to use their latest grammar learning to make a fantastic sentence

or being creative somehow

Encourage your child to go 'Over and Above' in their learning.



The document below gives you the list of statutory words they need to know in Year 5 as well as the spelling patterns they will be learning throughout the week.
