Your child will be expected to learn 10 spellings at home each week. These will link with our spellings lessons on a Thursday and will be published on Google Classroom and also available on Spelling Shed (your child's EdShed login will be needed to access this). Your child will be encouraged to play the spelling games on Spelling Shed each week to help them learn their spellings.
Weekly spellings will be issued on a Thursday and tested the following week in class.
In addition, it would be helpful if children could work towards learning the Year 5/6 common exception words noted below. These won't be tested on a regular basis but are useful words to learn as they do not follow usual spelling rules.
