We’re reviewing our learning on split digraphs this week: the ‘e’ at the end makes the vowel in the word a longer sound – compare ‘rid’ with ‘ride’, for example.
These words will be tested on Friday 03 May 2013.
19 April 2013
We’re learning to spell words with y at the end.
Ending a word with ‘y’ can sometimes make a very short ‘e’ or ‘i’ sound, such as ‘party’ and ‘lady’. However, the words in this list are all single-syllable words where the ‘y’ makes a long ‘i’ sound.
These will be tested on Friday 26 April.

We’re still practising words which have split digraphs. This week we are looking at ‘u – e‘, for example, tub (with a short ‘u’ sound) changes to tube (with a longer ‘u’ sound) when there’s an ‘e’.
