LEARNING to make a difference

Tuesday 12th January

This week's spelling rule is adding suffixes to words ending in y.

 

Rule

 

If the root word has a vowel before the y, just add the suffix.

 

e.g play = play/ played / playing

 

If the root word has a consonant before the y, change the y to an i and then add the suffix.

 

e.g spy = spies / spied 

 

Remember

 

Vowels are a , e , i , o and u.

 

Consonants are all of the other letters in the alphabet.

 

Task

 

Please practice your 20 spellings for this week using the look, say, cover, write and check approach.

You will be tested on these on Friday.
