Having learnt the -ible spelling pattern we are now working on the -able pattern. How many words can you think of that have this spelling pattern? How many of those words can you add a prefix too?
We've been delighted with how well everyone is doing with their weekly homework tasks. Well done for getting into the routine of bringing your homework books (along with your brass instruments) in on a Monday morning.
Our maths homework links closely to our new maths topic this week - addition and subtraction. So the extra work you are doing at home will no doubt feed into great progress in class.
We're always thrilled to see any additional tasks you have undertaken at home too. We love to celebrate your success so bring in those art projects and sporting certificates. We're also more than willing to sample your baked goods - 5SE loved India's space themed biscuits on Monday. Thank you.
Well done with our previous spelling rule - there have been some great scores in our weekly spelling tests so far.
Our new spelling rule involves the letter combination - ible. We have discussed words such as sensible, visible and incredible. How many more words are there with this spelling combination.
Our high frequency words are: why and friends. Remember....i to the end will be your friend!
Over the next two weeks we will be focusing on learning spellings which contain silent letters (specifically b). These are some examples: comb, limb, debt and subtle. Can you think of any others?
We are also learning high frequency words and statutory words from the Y5/6 spelling lists. This week we are learning something, important, accommodate, accompany and according.
