We would usually have our spelling test on a Friday, so see if you can get someone in your house to test you on your 'Week 4' words. 

Have a look at the next set of spellings on your list (Week 5.) Complete your spelling journals and use the Week 5 spelling and handwriting resources in the Year 5 and Year 6 'General Resources' folders to help you learn this week's spellings. Remember to practise them for 10 minutes every day. We will have our test after the Easter holidays.
