One of the more controversial parts of the new primary curriculum is the list of 100 words children are expected to learn in years 5 and 6. Discussions could go on for ever as to the validity of this list, but we have to ignore this controversy and publish as much as we can to help children with these 100 words.
Our latest three sets include words such as disastrous, embarrass and hindrance. Each set contains 10 words, with plenty of fun activities to ensure that all children are acquainted with the words and their meanings. As an extension to this children will also be expected to create new words from the list, usually by adding suffixes or prefixes. For example: making unfamiliar from familiar, or infrequently from frequently.
We now have activities on seventy of the hundred words and will be completing worksheets for the remaining thirty in the near future, so keep an eye out for them!
