Year 5/6 word list activities

year 5-6 word listYear 5/6 word list activities

We have just published our first sets of worksheets on the new Year 5 and 6 word lists.

This list is a statutory part of the new curriculum: children have to be taught these spellings and their meanings and will no doubt be tested on them at the end of Year 6. There has been some controversy over the list of 100 words but it is important that children become very familiar with them and know how to spell them. We have some great pages on the first three sets of ten words, including anagrams, mis-spellings, crosswords, word searches, sentence writing and missing words in sentences. It is well known that children need to come across words many times before they become a part of the vocabulary they use; hence we have provided at least four pages of activities on each ten words, as well as Look, Say, Cover, Write, Check sheets.

We have also provided a full list of all 100 words.

Look out for more on the 100 words in the near future.

  1. I have been using these sheets with two of the students I home tutor – one yr5 and one yr8. These are ideal as they have plenty of practice and exposure to the words before I finally test them for spellings.
    Please could you add more packs? It would take me forever to produce such a resource – and there are not enough hours in the day!
