double up for a short vowel sound

This week’s spelling list is formed using words that require you to double up the consonant after a short vowel sound. Children need to log onto Spelling Shed to practise. If you don’t know what any of the words mean, find out! If you need a reminder of your log in details, come in and see me before the due date.
accommodate according appreciate correspond embarrass
exaggerate harass immediately occupy opportunity

homophones

This week’s spelling list is formed using words that sound the same but are spelled differently. The activity this week is to write a silly story using all of the homophones. Be as crazy as you like, as long as you use the right word! Practise hearing the word and choosing the correct version for your sentence.
  • there/their/they’re
  • your/you’re
  • our/are
  • to/too/two
  • which/witch
  • where/wear
  • of/off
  • of/have (as in shouldn’t have)

Create ways for you to remember how to spell these words and generally practise using the strategies in the back of your homework book. Don’t forget to try adding prefixes and suffixes to the words. Spelling practice is best done little and often so make sure you come back to the spellings at least three times in the week. Date your practice and ask an adult to sign it to show that you’re practising regularly. There will be not be a test on Friday 15 March but we will find the words in a wordsearch.
