This resource pack will create a visual reminder of spelling patterns and rules taught in Years 5 and 6, as listed in English Appendix 1: Spelling. Each poster displays examples of words that use the spellings taught to create a visual display to support learning. Individual cards with the words and related image for each poster are also included where possible to consolidate and revisit learning.
All spelling rules are included in the four poster packs available for both Year 5 and Year 6, providing opportunities to revisit spelling rules taught and discuss strategies to improve spelling skills that could be applied. Vocabulary chosen for the Year 6 spelling posters includes longer or more difficult words to spell or understand.
A further Year 6 spelling patterns posters set is available for spelling patterns and rules taught in upper Key Stage 2.
