Spelling:

The National Curriculum for Years 5 and 6 expects children to be able to:

  • Use further prefixes and suffixes and understand the guidance for adding them (such as –able and –ible)
  • Spell some words with ‘silent’ letters (such as knight)
  • Continue to distinguish between homophones and other words which are often confused
  • Use knowledge of morphology and etymology in spelling
  • Use dictionaries to check the spelling and meaning of words
  • Use a thesaurus

By the end of Year 6, children are expected to understand and be able to meet the challenging spelling demands outlined in the National Curriculum. Children’s knowledge is assessed through a grammar, punctuation and spelling test that children sit in May as part of a week of national tests.

National Curriculum Spelling Lists: By the end of Year 6 pupils should be able to spell all of these words and be able to use them in their writing.
