Year 5 Miss Sanderson’s Weekly Spellings 10.1.19
This week, we have looked at homophones: words which are spelled differently and have different meanings, but sound the same.
Please encourage your children to practise their spellings daily – they really are trying hard in class to get better at Spelling and it’s clear that practising helps!
I have included a reminder of some of the ways we tried to recall each spelling in class.
- steel – metal we use to make things (this one tries to trick us – we see e and a in metal and think we ought to use them in steel! Nope! Eeeeee, this one is trying to trick us! It’s S T E E L not E A!
- steal – as in a thief steals the crown jewels… The rascal stole the steaming meat!
- stationery – pens, pencils… e can be found in pens, pencils and stationery!
- stationary – Stop! Halt! When we stop, we are not moving – we are stationary.
- heard – I heard a sound with my ear.
- herd – a herd of animals. A Herdie sheep is an animal – Mrs H loves Herdie sheep!
- father – a man who has a child – a dad.
- farther – far away. The dog walked farther than the man because the man threw his ball far away.
- cereal – I ate crunchy cornflakes for breakfast.
- serial – My bike has a serial number on it to keep it secure – I absolutely love my bike!
steel, steal, stationery, stationary, heard, herd, father, farther, cereal, serial
Please continue to practise your year 3 /4 and 5 / 6 statutory words as well.
Miss Sanderson 🙂
