Today, there are further words from the Year 5/6 statutory list to practice. Remember the different techniques you could use to practice and these can be found in previous spelling lessons. Also, remember to check the definition if you aren't sure and try including these words in sentences so that you can use them in context.

Now that we have finished reading Treasure Island, we would like you to write a book review about the book. In your review think about these points:

  •  Summarise the story in a few sentences. What was the plot? Who were the characters?
  • What genre is the book?
  • When was the book set, is it recent or historical? 
  • Did you enjoy it or not and why? You need to be able to justify your opinion using evidence about the book.
  • Who do you think might want to read it - who would be the target audience?
  • Would you recommend the book and why?
  • Anything else you want to include and you think is relevant.


There is a document below which will give you some ideas about planning your review.


We would love to see your reviews, so if possible, can you email them to
