This week our words to learn do not fit into a spelling pattern. They are our challenge words. In our lesson today we looked at each word and highlighted which part we thought would be tricky to remember when spelling it.
Spelling tasks are on Spelling Shed and expect the children to be practicing these words at home.
Here are our words we have learned this week. They all end in -tial and -cial but these words are the exceptions to the rules that we have learned (root word ending in a consonant -tial, ending in a vowel -cial). Please support your child in practicing these spellings at home.
This week we are looking at words ending -tial. Here is the list of words for the children to practice at home. There are also tasks for them to complete on Spelling Shed.
Over the past two weeks the children have been working on an art topic studying Kinetic Art and in particular the work of the artist Alexander Calder.
This week they were given the brief to create a 3D modroc sculpture over an armature to add to a mobile depicting celestial bodies or objects that could be found in space. They planned their work, created the shape with modroc earlier in the week and added paint today. We think that they have done a fantastic job so far.
This week we are learning to spell words ending -cial. We have learned that these words usually have a vowel before the suffix, BUT, not always! Look for words that don't fit the rule while learning your spellings this week and look out for other words ending in -cial. Do they follow the rule?
This week our spelling words in Year 5 all end in -cious. There are tasks for the children to complete on Spelling Shed and we expect them to practice these words at home.
