double up

This week’s activity is to find at least ten words where you must double up the consonant for a short vowel sound. Have a go at practising the words in a creative way.  Once you’ve finished, write each word in your own sentence or story. Challenge yourself to include a relative clause!

Be ready to discuss your findings in class on Thursday 04 October.

‘-able’ and ‘-ible’

This week’s spelling list is formed using words that end in either ‘-able’ or  ‘-ible’. It can be difficult to distinguish which ending you need so don’t get caught out! If you don’t know what any of the words mean, find out! Can you show them in a creative way? Can you write them in your own sentences?

This week’s activity is to work out the correct word that matches the definition. All the words contain a silent letter so don’t get caught out! Once you’ve finished, write each word in your own sentences or a story. Challenge yourself to include a relative clause!

‘ough’ words

This week’s spelling list is formed using words that contain the letters ‘ough’. These words have the same letters but sound completely different. Practise saying them aloud, writing them down and using them in your own sentences. If you don’t know what any of the words mean, find out.
although bought brought cough enough
rough sought thorough though tough

Made-up words

This week, you should use our three key spelling rules (and any others you can think of) to create 5 of your own made-up words. The word should contain at least one of the rules: double up for a short vowel sound, drop the ‘y’ for an ‘i’ and/or drop the ‘e’ for ‘ing’. Each word must have a definition.

Next week, we’ll vote for our 10 favourites and these will form our word list for the week after. We’ll have our vote on Friday 13 July.

Revision

This week, children have been given a copy of the statutory word list for years 5 and 6. This list contains examples of the words children should know how to spell by the end of Year 6. However, many of the words on the list are similar to the rules and patterns we have learnt this year. Children should revise these rules/words in preparation for a test next week. Evidence of this revision should be shown in their homework books.

Homophones

For the next two weeks, our spelling focus will be all about homophones: words that sound the same but are spelt differently. In order to practise, I would like you to create a short (possibly silly) story using all the words below.

cereal – serial

father – farther

guessed – guest

morning – mourning

who’s – whose

You should complete this activity by Thursday 14 June 2018 so we can enjoy them as part of our homework review.

Friday 18 May 2018 – revision

As it is the last week of this half-term, instead of being given a list of words to learn, you should revise all the rules we have focused on so far this year. You will be tested on these rules on Friday 18 May 2018.

Evidence your revision on this page of your homework book. We’ll share our revision techniques in class so make sure you feel proud of what you’ve been doing at home!
