Image result for year 6

Spring Term:

The children will be given their weekly spellings on a Monday after a pre-test in class. 

WC 10.2.20


Please revise all previous spelling rules taught this half term.

 To ensure the children have understood the spelling and its meaning it would be really helpful if the children write out the definition for each word as part of their spelling practice. This will enable them to use these spellings successfully in their writing.

 Spelling Challenge: Can you list some other words which follow the same rule?


Useful website for exploring spellings and their rules:



The children have all received copies of their passwords for BugClub (new books have been selected) and Times Table Rockstars.

Please encourage your child to use these resources to support their reading and times tables recall. 




Y6 Standard of Writing

Please work read through the Ten Ten Newsletter each month with your child.
