On this page you will find a list of words which pupils in years 5 & 6 are expected to be able to spell. In order to help pupils catch up it would be useful if parents could help their child work through the list, a few at a time, correcting any errors as they go.

A useful technique for learning spellings is the Look, Cover, Write, Check method.
Alternatively, pupils can practice the spellings by going to this QUIZLET page, then choose SPELLER from the top of the page. The words will be read out and pupils type them in.
