Every week, your child will be taught a new spelling rule to practise during the week, ready for a spelling test on Friday. Please spend time at home practising these spellings using ‘Look, say, cover, write, check’ in the Spelling Homework Booklets, as well as discussing the spelling rule. Please ensure spelling Homework Books are kept in school bags.


In Year 5, children continue to learn to write different types of texts and we use model texts to highlight the key features of these texts before children create their own versions. The table below highlights the text types and texts that we are learning in Year 5.
