The complete Year 5 & 6 Spelling List Programme

The complete Year 5 & 6 Spelling List Programme

This is a unique resource which contains the complete Year 5 and 6 spelling list programme. In 2014 the Year 5 & 6 spelling list was introduced. This contained 100 words that all Year 5 & 6 pupils should be able to spell correctly. This imaginative way of learning and testing these spellings is contained in 8 weekly parts, each including a humorous story setting the 12 words for the week in context. This booklet also contains an additional story assessing the 24 homophones, which many Year 5 and 6 pupils still struggle to use correctly in their writing. Story titles are imaginative and include; 'Vanessa and the Robot Dog,' 'The Story of the Richest Girl in the World, 'Marvo, Crusty and the Incredible Barrel Bet,' and 'Brave Sir John and the Smell of Fear.' to name but a few. This 60 page book is an essential resource for Year 5 and 6 teachers preparing for SATs and also useful for teachers in years 7 and 8 completing catch up programmes. I hope you will enjoy using this resource.
