This half term (Summer 2nd half term) we will be investigating the following spelling rules and patterns:


  • The correct use of homophones (which/witch)
  • The use of a root word to build a new word : assist - assistant - assistance
  • When to use ie or ei
  • Words with cian eg. magician, electrician


Please support your child by conducting investigations into these rules.


We will continue to learn words from the Y5/6 100 word list. There are plenty of copies in school that the children can bring home. Everyone made good progress in the last big test (end of March) and we look forward to re-testing before the end of May.
