This week’s spellings relate to the j‘ sound at the end of a word. They will be tested on Friday 13 September 2019.

The j sound is spelled -dge straight after short vowel sounds (eg badge – the ‘a’ is making a short sound) and -ge (eg change – the ‘a’ is making a longer ‘ay’ sound) after all other sounds.

badge
edge
bridge
fudge
charge
huge
change
village

Take a look at our spelling guide for some suggested methods for learning these spellings.

We’re learning about -ness suffix in phonics next week. Be careful with the first spelling, happiness, as you have to drop the y for an i before adding the suffix. For all the others you just add the suffix on to the root word.

happy         happiness
sad             sadness
kind            kindness
quiet          quietness
dark           darkness
ill               illness
shy            shyness
sick           sickness

The spellings this week can all have the suffix -ful or –less added to them (some can have both). The underlined words have an extra rule to follow when adding the suffix: drop the y for an i.

Children often make mistakes with this suffix. For example,   walkt or walkd.
