In Year 5 children become happy, motivated and self-aware learners, equipped with skills to sustain their learning independently. They are willing to take risks and experiment in ways which enable them to achieve in a well rounded way. They become polite, confident, socially skilled members of a community for which they feel pride.

- You will be tested on these spellings during Friday’s dictation.
- Do you know what these words mean?
- Can you use them in a sentence?
What are the word’s synonyms and antonyms?
- Read every day for 20 minutes.
- If you have one, read your coloured reading book out loud to someone at home at least three times a week.
- Update your reading diary every day with a comment about your reading.
Can you add a new book to your ‘book bingo’ page in your diaries?
