One Childhood - One Chance

Changes to spellings and homework - English

We are changing the way that we do spellings in year 5! From now on, you will get new spellings on a Tuesday and the test will be the following Tuesday - meaning you have a whole week to learn them now, including a weekend!

There will still be 12 spellings:

  • 5 from our current spelling focus
  • 5 that are new vocabulary that we have been learning in class from our English text
  • 2 orange words - these are 'tricky' words set out in the national curriculum. 

Our reading comprehension homework will also now run Tuesday to Tuesday.

Here are the first new set like this:
