We are pleased to announce that we have just completed the final two sets of activities for the year 5 to 6 words which are a statutory part of the English programme of study. There are some quite tricky words in these lists, such as rhythm and symbol, together with some quite easy ones such as suggest and stomach.
We now have sets of worksheets for all 100 words in the statutory list, including activities such as anagrams, crosswords, word searches etc, all aimed at introducing children to the words. Together with these we have the more formal Look Say, Cover, Write, Check pages, checking meanings with a dictionary and writing sentences using the words.
This is not the last time we will meet these words as we have further activities planned for the future, but it is a great place to start familiarising children with the set words. Remember these words need to be learned and understood by the time SATs come around in Year 6 next year, so there is no need to rush into them.
