Word bank

Here is a word bank to help you create your sentences



Continue playing this seeing as I know you like it.


Choose a level.

  1. Primary Star = Easy
  2. Rising Star = Medium
  3. Super Star = Challenging


Once you have chosen a level, work through the spelling games and jot down any spellings you'd like to use for your writing task. Build up your own Word Bank, like we do in our Year 5 lessons.


Remember, we'd like you to have a go at writing about your own TV news report. You could write a TV report about what your favourite player did in a game or how your favourite team won a game against a rival. Or, you could tell a story about a local event. Whatever you want, BUT aim to write as many sentences. as you can.


When you have finished, post them onto our Year 5 class blog. We'd love to see and hear them.
