Spellings

Spellings will be given to you (electronically) on Thursday with the homework and be tested on the Friday morning of the following week. Please check the weekly spellings if you are away or want to practise them at home.

 

The spellings from the year 5 and 6 list in the National Curriculum are also here. You may go through these at any time, testing yourself or getting someone else to test you. This is the best way to remember.
