NAPLAN in Year 5

Last year, your child would have begun sitting their first set of NAPLAN tests for Year 3 — this year, they get a break from these assessments.

These tests focus on your child’s abilities in:

  • Reading & Writing
  • Language Conventions
  • Numeracy

With the way these assessments are structured, your child will be required to sit them again in Year 5 — but it’s not something that they need to study hard for, as they are assessed on things they learn regularly in the classroom!

Now where do our spelling worksheets come in? There’s a section in the Language Conventions test specifically just for spelling!

Your child will need to indicate any mistakes in the spelling of a word, as well as correct the spellings. This is something your child actively does when completing our spelling worksheets, as they’ll need to write and check as they go along!

If you’re wondering how the questions are structured in the NAPLAN, your child may be given a question like this:

English Skills for Year 4 Students

In addition to spelling, your child will be developing other important literacy skills in Year 4, such as punctuation and reading. These skills will play a significant role in their overall language development and will also be assessed in the Year 5 NAPLAN.


As your child progresses through Year 4, their reading abilities continue to advance. While they may not rely on you as much for guidance, you can still support their reading development in various ways.

One way to help is by providing them with recommended texts suitable for their skill level in Year 4. These texts can be sourced from libraries, bookstores, or online platforms that offer age-appropriate reading materials.

In Year 4, your child will learn about different types of punctuation to enhance their writing skills. They will focus on punctuation marks such as colons, semicolons, and clauses.

To assist your child in understanding and using these punctuation types effectively, we have developed a set of worksheets specifically designed for Year 4 students. These worksheets will provide them with ample practice and help reinforce their knowledge of punctuation rules.

By engaging in activities that promote reading and practising punctuation, your child will continue to strengthen their language skills and be well-prepared for the challenges they will encounter in Year 4 and beyond.
