This week’s spelling activity focuses on the ‘ie’ and ‘oe’ sounds and the alternative graphemes for them:

 

ie, y, i,  i-e

oe, oa, o, o-e, ow

 

See how many words you can think of that include the ‘ie’ or the ‘oe’ sounds and record them in your homework book – try sorting them according to the grapheme use to make the sounds. I;m looking for useful spelling practice like the examples show on the sheet that is now stuck in the back of the children’s books. This homework is due on Thursday 26 September and there will be no test on Friday.

  • your/you’re
  • its/it’s
  • of/off
  • they’re/their/there
  • which/witch
  • hour/our
  • mite/might
  • wear/where

We are learning our 8 times tables.

This week, spelling looks at words with the ‘u’ sound spelled with an ‘ou’. There is no list to learn. Instead, your child should find as many words that follow this rule and make a list in their homework book.

The words ‘trouble’, ‘young’ and ‘country’ are examples of this rule.

This is due in on Thursday 27 June 2019.

Spelling this week is a list of words with the ‘ly’  suffix. This is a recap of something your child has learnt in Year Two.

There are some rules when adding this suffix to a word.

  • The suffix ‘-ly’ starts with a consonant letter, so is added straight on to most root words.
  • If the root word ends in consonant letter ‘y’, the ‘y’ is changed to ‘i’, but only if the word is more than one syllable.
  • If the root words ends in ‘le’, the ‘le’ is changed to ‘ly’.

friend, kind, clumsy, exact, angry, careful, dead, part

This list will be tested on Friday 17 May 2019.
