Weekly Spellings

In year 5 children will be set weekly spelling lists to learn and be tested on at the end of each week. The spelling words are taken from the Y5/6 word list and statutory requirements for spelling published in the national curriculum.  


There is a useful spelling game on school 360 called Spell Blaster. You can find this in the j2e section of the resources.
