Be a Writer

 'The pen is mightier than the sword!'  - Edward Bulwer-Lytton

Being able to communicate effectively is one of the most powerful tools you will ever possess. Being a writer allows you to express yourself clearly, entertain others (Roald Dahl was rather good at this) and influence others (ideally, positively).  

Language is complex, beautiful and amazing; and we just adore learning about it, using it and playing with it! To these ends, this page aims  to be a growing resource to keep this passion burning as well as be a place to more widely celebrate Year 5's growth as the communicators and entertainers of the future.

Spring Term Spellings

The timetable for the children's spelling lessons is below so you can get ahead of the game or practise the words at home! 

 

All of the spelling lists for this term are below. If your child can confidently spell all of these words already, please practise words from the year 5/6 statutory spelling list which can be found by following the link below.

 

Once they can spell all of those words too, contact Miss Philo for some super hard challenge spellings!

Autumn Term Spellings

Throughout the Autumn term, the children have learned a variety of different strategies for learning and practising spellings - all of which can be found on the SPaG section of this website. 

 

Below are the words we have taught them and some of the rules they have discovered along the way! 

Spelling RULES!  Ever wondered if a word ends in -ible or -able? Well fear not! If it can be said without the suffix, like breakable can also be break then -able is the suffix! For words like legible and eligible (which have no root word) -ible is the right word ending!                                                    Spelling RULES!  Ever wondered if a word ends in -ible or -able?

We are Writers

So far in year 5, we have written: autobiographies, news reports, descriptive pieces, science fiction stories and even a script for our own space show for kids. 

 

We can't wait to start getting some of our writing on to here to show what we can do!

 

Please keep your eyes peeled for what's to come...
