Grammar, Punctuation & Spelling

All year groups in primary schools have a list of statutory words that children should learn to read and spell by the end of their time in that phase.  Years 5 and 6 share the list of words that you will find below.  Children should be encouraged to find strategies to help them to remember the spellings of these trickier words and would benefit from practising them a few at a time until they are feeling more confident with them, before moving on to the next small group of words.
