Spellings

Spellings are given in class every Monday for children to practise ready for their spelling test on Friday

The spellings will also be posted online so children can practise them at home. 

In addition, please see below the Statutory Spelling List for Year 5 and 6. These words will be taught across both year groups and children will be expected to know these by the end of Year 6.

 

Spellings week beginning 19th October 2020

Week 5 – Suffixes

This week we will be focusing on a group of suffixes, two of which (-ance and –ence) can be easily confused in spelling.

Rule: A suffix is a group of letters added to the end of a word that changes its meaning.

Examples:

secret + ive = secretive

appear + ance = appearance

correspond + ence = correspondence

Group 1 Group 2 Group 3
resemblance narrative bake
grievance supportive cake
correspondence expensive make
disappearance evidence lake
progressive reference take
prohibitive importance snake
inheritance digestive explode
innocence productive explosive
distinctive appearance brave
inference massive bravery
