This pack has been put together to support teachers in ensuring that children are familiar with the Years 5 and 6 statutory spelling words.

The words are presented on cards for display; and as mats that can be used for table work.

Assessment sheets are also included, so teachers can tick off words as they are learnt.

Pupils should be taught to:

Use further prefixes and suffixes and understand the guidance for adding them

Spell some words with ‘silent’ letters [for example, knight, psalm, solemn]

Continue to distinguish between homophones and other words which are often confused

Use knowledge of morphology and etymology in spelling and understand that the spelling of some words needs to be learnt specifically, as listed in English Appendix 1

Use dictionaries to check the spelling and meaning of words

Use the first three or four letters of a word to check spelling, meaning or both of these in a dictionary
