Year 5/6 spelling list
This week, we have given you the 5/6 spelling list. Go through the list and pick 10 words that you would find tricky to spell. Practise them in different ways. 

Lesson 1:  Look up each word in a dictionary. Write out its definition and use it in a sentence. If you need an online dictionary, use this website https://dictionary.cambridge.org/ 
Lesson 2:  Use the method of look, cover, write, check to practise your spellings. Underline any parts of the word that you are finding tricky.
Lesson 3: Yesterday, you should have underlined any parts of your spelling rules that you found tricky. Practise writing them again but this time write the tricky part in a different colour. 
Lesson 4:  Create a word search of your words. See if a family member can find all of them.
Lesson 5: Get a family member to test you on your spellings. How many did you get right? Which ones will you need to keep working at?
