GPAS

The National Curriculum 2014 has highlighted the importance of teaching children explicit knowledge of Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling. Building this knowledge is best achieved through a focus on grammar within the teaching of reading, writing and speaking. Once pupils are familiar with a concept they will be encouraged to use this in their speech and writing.

The concepts introduced in Year 5 are: further suffixes and prefixes; spelling silent letter words; a knowledge of morphology and entymology; homophones and how to use a thesaurus.

Word Converting nouns or adjectives into verbs using suffixes [for example, –ate; –ise; –ify]

Verb prefixes [for example, dis–, de–, mis–, over– and re–]

Sentence Relative clauses beginning with who, which, where, when, whose, that, or an omitted relative pronoun

Indicating degrees of possibility using adverbs [for example, perhaps, surely] or modal verbs [for example, might, should, will, must]

Text Devices to build cohesion within a paragraph [for example, then, after that, this, firstly]

Linking ideas across paragraphs using adverbials of time [for example, later], place [for example, nearby] and number [for example, secondly] or tense choices [for example, he had seen her before]

Punctuation Brackets, dashes or commas to indicate parenthesis

Use of commas to clarify meaning or avoid ambiguity

Terminology for pupils modal verb, relative pronoun

relative clause

parenthesis, bracket, dash

cohesion, ambiguity

Spelling

Spelling in Year 5 is taken from the National Curriculum 2014. The table below lists the statutory requirements for Years 5-6.

Homework

Children are given a reading book appropriate to their level, which they are expected to read daily. Please write in your child’s contact book when they have finished reading it so the teacher knows when to change it. Your child will receive weekly English and Maths homework which is based around their learning in class. They will be given this on Thursday and expected to return it by Tuesday of the following week. There will also be spelling lists given each week from the Year 5/6 spelling list.

Term 5 long term homework: Investigate which plants might be in an allotment. Please return to school by Friday 17th May.
