By the end of the year children are required to know all of the Year 3/4 key word spellings and most of the Year 5/6 key words spellings. There are also Year 5/6 spelling patterns to learn and apply. Accurate spelling is required in order to achieve the expected Year 6 standard in writing. Therefore learning weekly spellings is essential for success in Year 6.
Spellings will be tested every Friday.
The two topics for this term are Electricity (1st Half) and Light (2nd Half).
Our Topic Learning:
