This week’s spelling task is to see how many words, from the spellings given last week, you can make using the letters in your homework book.

Cut the letters out (but don’t stick them down) – How many words can you make? This is a great way to practise and learn spellings.

The spellings given last week will be tested on Friday 03 February.

The spelling test will be on all the rules you have learnt so far.

  • Adding prefixes and suffixes, including ‘drop the e for ing/ed/er’
  • ‘y’ making an ‘i’ sound
  • homophones
  • double up for a short vowel sound

It’s the last spelling test of 2016 so make this one a brilliant one!
