This half term we are updating our approach to spelling tests. The children will be able to access the spellings on the website as usual. The children have been put into groups. They will be tested each week on a selection of all the words on the website. Each group will be able to see the words they have to learn as they will be colour coded. If your child wishes to learn more than their colour group, then they are more than welcome to and can complete the test with the others on Thursdays. If you look at the document below, you will find the words for this week as well as a brief explanation of the spelling rule they are learning. 

 

If there are any problems please speak to a member of the Year 5 team.

 

NOTE: 5BC do not yet know their group. They will be told which group they are in on Friday 3rd November.
