Northern Ireland Star Writer

This weeks star writer in Northern Ireland is Lena, who wrote a fantastic introduction for her instructions, she used a rhetorical question and list sentence which enticed her reader to engage with the instructions.

Year 5 spellings - week 5

Dear year 5 parents and children,

Please find below the spellings for week 5. The spellings below will be tested on Friday 19th October. This week the spellings focus on the suffixes 'ably' and 'ibly.'


Please ensure that your child practices their spellings for 15 minutes each evening, to help with their progression in the spelling test. Children should also be encouraged to put the words into sentence, to help with their understanding of the word.

Many thanks from the year 5 team.
