Year 5 Home Learning Work for Friday 19th June


Use the spreadsheet below to set yourself a times table grid to complete.


Today I would like you to investigate the frequency of the letters in our language. Use the instructions on the document below to find out which letters are most / least common when we write.


Ask someone at home to test you on this week's spellings - good luck.


Some of the letters in our alphabet are uncommon (we do not use them much). In an English Dictionary, there are a great many words beginning with A, but not so many beginning with J.

Your challenge is to see how many words you can think of using only your brain-box dictionary (no googling or scanning a printed dictionary allowed). Give yourself 10 minutes thinking time for each one. This will be more fun if you compete against someone else at home - can you beat Uncle Earnshaw?

Here's my list of words beginning with X:


xyster (I learnt that one last week)



xanthophyll (a pigment in plants, like chlorophyll)

xi (a Greek letter - I only know this one because it's really useful in Scrabble)


I didn't get very far! It's really hard with X.


Your challenges are:

Words beginning with J

Words beginning with K

Words beginning with Q

Words beginning with Z
