Upper Key Stage 2 Team Leader Forum- 03.12.19
Thank you to those parents who attended the forum last term. The PowerPoint shared at this is below for anyone who was unable to attend. On the PowerPoint are some useful websites and tips for helping your children at home with spelling, reading and maths. As requested, attached is a document which will help children to practise using some of the grammatical skills required at Year 5 and 6. It could be used as a writing game, choosing a card at random and adding this grammatical skill into the next sentence. Also attached is a copy of the year 6 writing targets for this term.
Below, you will find the new Spring Term 1 spellings lists for both Year 5 and Year 6:
