LEARNING to make a difference

Tuesday 12th January

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




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 




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


Consonants are all of the other letters in the alphabet.




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.
