Spelling Activities Year 5 and 6

Games and puzzles worksheets for fun spelling revision and test prep of the KS2 (Y5 / Y6) statutory word list of 100 words. Great for Year 6 SATs revision. There are 3 Four in a Row games and 3 puzzles worksheets, which can be used as starter tasks, early finisher activities or as stations in spelling / SPaG lessons. Ideal as fun, meaningful startend of term activities. All answer keys are provided. PDF format.THE SPELLING, PUNCTUATION AND GRAMMAR FOLLOW UK RULES, SO THESE ARE ONLY SUITABLE FOR COUNTRIES THAT FOLLOW THESE. 3 HIDDEN WORD / SPOT THE MISTAKES PUZZLES: These puzzles feature sentences containing multiple words from the Year 5 and Year 6 spelling list. Most are spelled correctly. Students must check carefully to spot errors and then highlight the corresponding letters in the grid at the bottom. They rearrange the highlighted letters to form another word from the spelling list. To save printing, print puzzles on card and laminate. Students use whiteboard markers and wipe puzzles when finished, allowing you to use them again and again. The puzzles are included with a pastel background, to reduce glare for dyslexic learners and others for whom this is helpful. If not printing in colour, it will become a greyscale background, which you might also prefer, though there are also versions without a background at all. Students often forget or avoid checking their work for errors so it’s great to get them carefully checking in these puzzles. Spotting errors may help them remember to check their own work and help them avoid errors themselves. Students could complete puzzles individually, in pairs or in small groups. For differentiation put lower ability children into pairs, perhaps with a higher ability student. You could allow a word list or dictionary for support. 3 FOUR IN A ROW GAMES: Each board contains 36 sentences which feature a misspelled word from the Year 5 and Year 6 word list. These words are printed in bold and are underlined. Pairs or individuals can play against each other, aiming to correct four adjacent spellings in a line - horizontally, vertically or diagonally. Pupils roll a dice each time to determine from which column they must pick a sentence. Print and laminate for regular use. They were originally designed for A3 printing, and I recommend this, with pupils writing directly on the board with a thin whiteboard marker. However, it works fine in A4 (you may need to adjust your printer settings). If A4, pupils could write their spelling on a whiteboard or paper and put their initials in the space on the board if they are correct. SAVE by purchasing this as part of my SPaG Revision BUNDLE, which also contains Hidden Word / Spot the Mistakes Puzzles for Editing / Proofreading (SPaG). Thank you for your interest in my resources.

The Witches' Spell - Teaching Pack of lessons and presentationQuick View

The Witches' Spell - Teaching Pack of lessons and presentation

Here are the full set of lesson plans, presentations and printable resources that you’ll need for sessions with EYFS, Key Stage 1 or 2 children and their teachers. These lessons introduce the famous ‘Double, double, toil and trouble…’ verses from the play, Macbeth, said by the witches as they create a spell and is a great way to bring children to the Bard for the first time. Children get to act out the spell and build their own verses, using key vocabulary, and rhythm and rhyme. There are also lessons on capacity, counting, sorting, music, and art. Differentiation is built into the sessions, and the lessons can be seen as a starting point for your own ideas. There is scope for further development into a longer term project, with potion making and hallowe’en activities etc. A follow-up to the drama and music work could be a musical scene based on the spell, which could become a longer more demanding drama and movement performance for an assembly or end of term production, depending on the ability of your pupils. Every lesson has clear aims and success criteria, a comprehensive list of resources, helpful key words and specially designed worksheets and/or presentations, which are all created to be adaptable for your settings and your classes. My aim to make something that is useful and usable for teachers, that is fun for everybody, while creating memorable educational experiences. I have used the extract here with 3 to 11 year olds many times, and it is always a guaranteed winner, becoming a firm favourite warm-up game for drama activities.

This a full self setting spelling homework program. The idea is to hit those common exception words and high frequency words for EYFS and KS1. Moreover it is designed to be creative!!! Children choose one fun activity to complete a week and tick the grid when they have completed. I mark them each week but they choose the words and there is no need to reset the homework over a half term. It hits the common exception words from the new curriculum so is up to date. I have included baseline tests and a set of simple copy and paste activities to go in the editable grid. Children really enjoying this at my school hope you do to!
