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.

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.
