Mrs Howe & Mrs Best
Spelling is taught every day in Year 6. Each week, on a Monday and Tuesday, the children focus on learning or revising spelling rules followed by learning the statutory spellings on Wednesday and Thursday. Children are expected to practise the statutory spellings at home each week and these are posted online on Seesaw each Monday Tests take place on Fridays.
For the first half-term Year 6 are revising statutory words from Year 3 and Year 4 until they are secure. After half-term, they will move onto those from Year 5 and Year 6. We have uploaded lists of these words here so you can practise and help your children learn these at home. Please keep going back over learnt words so your child can recall them accurately and use them in their writing.
Parents often ask us how they can help improve their child's reading. Our response is just this: encourage you child to read at every opportunity and talk to them about what they are reading - you could even ask them to read favourite parts aloud to you. Make sure your child is reading a variety of books written by good recognised authors as well as a variety of text types- fiction and non-fiction.
Here is a list of 50 recommended reads for Y6 to give you some ideas. Click on the link below.
