Spelling Lists




10th June 22


On the week commencing Monday 11th July, we will be having our final spelling assessments of all the spellings for Year 5. Some children are working from the year 4 spelling lists too as that is an appropriate level for them. Your child has been sent home today with a full list of spellings.

The spellings have been grouped for each week and they will all be tested during the final week. We will also be doing this for times tables and the information for each week is below.

Weekly update

Year 5 had a great time at Cambridge Science Centre where they learnt about different protective clothing. We then had a lovely picnic and enjoyed playing on the park. This week we have started a new text called The Nowhere Emporium which has got us feeling all magical.
