Year Five Spellings

Year 5 Statutory Spellings

Below are the Year 5/6 Statutory spellings. These are covered over the year in the children’s weekly spelling tests but any additional practise will help the children become confident with the Year 5/6 spellings. Repetition and application is key when it comes to children remembering their spellings. Thank you for your ongoing support with this.

The Accord Multi Academy Trust is an educational charity established in September 2016 that is currently made up of four academies who were the founding members of the Trust. In September 2016 Horbury Academy and Ossett Academy & Sixth Form College came together, moving away from their stand-alone Trust status and were joined in December 2016 by Horbury Primary Academy and Middlestown Primary Academy.

The overarching vision for the Trust is to work in one ‘Accord – celebrating the differences of each academy through strong collaboration in order to inspire all members of our learning community to be the best that they can be.
