Task 1 - Test: 

Please ask an adult to test you on this week's spellings.

precocious  malicious  scrumptious sacrificial   prejudicial residential pretentious preferential amateur apparent 

 

Task 2- Word Class

For the words below, predict what you think their word class will be (e.g. verb, noun, adjective, adverb). Using the word in a sentence can help you work out the word class. E.g. repetitious- The story was very repetitious- it is describing the noun (story) so must be an adjective).

Write down your predictions then check if you were right using a dictionary (the word class will be shown next to the word)

luscious, gracious, repetitious, multiracial, commercial, potential, conscientious, influential

appreciate, category

 

Task 3- Spelling Games

Next week, you will be tested on the following words : 

luscious, gracious, repetitious, multiracial, commercial, potential, conscientious, influential

appreciate, category (Year 5/6 words)

 

Practise these spellings by completing the following activities and games: 

1) Spelling Race: Choose a spelling word. Put on a timer for 1 minute and see how many times you can correctly and clearly spell the word within 1 minute. Repeat with your other spelling words. 

2) Fancy letters: Choose a spelling word and write it in a 'fancy' style. You may wish to create curls and flicks on letters or use bubble letters. See how many different font styles you can come up with while you practise all of your spelling words. 

3) Rainbow words: Write or type your spellings using a different colour for each letter. 

Remember to keep reviewing your spellings throughout the week ready for next Friday.
