This week, Class 5 need to practise all the spellings that they’ve learnt for the last three tests.

Children should have spelling lists for previous weeks in their learning list books, but they’re also here on previous posts.

Next week will look at the three tests prior to that (drop the ‘y’ for ‘i’ and homophones), if children want to get a head start and revise those too.

A number of children are doing very well in tests but forgetting to spell accurately in writing tasks, so I’m hopeful that this revision will remind them of the importance of retaining general rules and not just learning words.
