Year 5 Spellings this week

Published on Friday 24 September 2021 by Mrs Blackett.

This week we are learning to spell words ending -cial. We have learned that these words usually have a vowel before the suffix, BUT, not always! Look for words that don't fit the rule while learning your spellings this week and look out for other words ending in -cial. Do they follow the rule?

          Welcome back!

          It has been a pleasure to welcome the children back to school and into 5MB. We have had a lovely two days and it has been fantastic to hear about everything the children have been up to. We have also been busy getting straight into some excellent learning. We read the book The Flower by John Light. We picked out some challenging vocabulary, found out the definitions and added them onto our Vocabulary Wall.

          Welcome back! Welcome back!

          We also spent some time thinking about how our main character, Brigg, feels at different parts of the story and then we have written a diary entry from his point of view.

          Welcome back! Welcome back!

          This afternoon we had the chance to explore our new reading area. We have hundreds of new books that we will be able to read during the year and we can't wait to get started on them!
