  • your/you’re
  • our/are
  • to/too/two
  • which/witch

This week’s spelling list has been formed by asking Year 5 for some spellings that they always seem to have difficulty with! It seems there is good reason though – some of these are really tricky! Just log on to Spelling Shed as normal and as always, come in to see me if you need any help. Make sure it’s before next Thursday, though!

I’ve been very impressed by Y5’s enthusiasm and effort when using Spelling Shed and we’re definitely starting to see it pay off in the classroom. Top work, Y5.
