Hello Parents and Carers and welcome to Redwood 2016-17, Year 5!


During this Summer term, we will be focussing on studying The Vikings and the world of work of the past compared with the present. Remember that we are training pupils to work in jobs which haven't been invented yet! Here's a question... Who's quote is that?

The Vikings is a great topic; we are aiming to help the pupils to understand that there was much more to The Vikings that running around holding an axe and looking scary! Did you know that the day, Thursday, is named after the Viking god, Thor? (Yes him from the Marvel films!)


Below is a list of the spellings for Year 5 and 6 which don't fit any particular rules and just need to be memorised.

accommodate accompany according achieve aggressive amateur ancient apparent appreciate attached available average awkward bargain bruise category cemetery committee communicate community competition conscience* conscious* controversy convenience correspond criticise (critic + ise) curiosity definite desperate determined develop dictionary disastrous
embarrass environment equip (–ped, –ment) especially exaggerate excellent existence explanation familiar foreign forty frequently government guarantee harass hindrance identity immediate(ly) individual interfere interrupt language leisure lightning marvellous mischievous muscle necessary neighbour nuisance occupy occur opportunity parliament
persuade physical prejudice privilege profession programme pronunciation queue recognise recommend relevant restaurant rhyme rhythm sacrifice secretary shoulder signature sincere(ly) soldier stomach sufficient suggest symbol system temperature thorough twelfth variety vegetable vehicle yacht


If you could be supporting with this at home, we would be very thankful... but... there is a secret way to improve spelling skills... READ, READ, READ! Reading is the most important thing that your child will ever do when it comes to self-development! 

We will be in touch regarding trips which link to our topics and the new curriculum letter will be uploaded shortly.


Thank you for reading!
