Spellings, Reading and Times tables
Please find the year group spellings on the side tab. Children should learn their specific spellings each week, using the Spelling Menu to support where needed. Children will be tested on a Friday on their weekly spellings, this will take the format of a dictation exercise where I will be looking at children’s grammatical, punctuation and spelling knowledge in context.
Children will be sent home with a levelled book, this will be changed once they have finished it. Children will be assessed on their book level by the class teacher and teaching assistants, we will listen to children read individually as well as in small groups. Please encourage your child to read at least 5 times a week at home and record this in their contact book. We will continue with our Reading Raffle each half term too!
Children are encouraged to use TT rockstars as well as Maths Club to work on their times tables each week, I will be noting and celebrating the children who are engaging with this whilst at home. It is vital that these basic number facts are practiced as much as possible!
Please find our long term plan Long term plan Cycle A Y5_6.docx for the academic year.
