More plurals this week! This time we are investigating how the spelling changes when making plurals for words that end in y. There are two rules:

  1. Add s if the final letter is preceded by a vowel.
  2. If not preceded by a vowel, change the y to an i and add es.
1. donkey donkeys
2. ray rays
3. play plays
4. boy boys
5. day days
6. puppy puppies
7. army armies
8. party parties
9. city cities
10. berry berries

Spellings will be tested on Thursday 15 December.
