Letters and Sounds
Practise some of the spelling rules we have been learning this week:
The present and past
We have been investigating what happens to the spelling of verbs when they are in the present and past tense by looking at the suffixes 'ing' and 'ed'.
Use this link to practise your understanding.
Yesterday we tried to find as many words in
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR!
The longest ones we have found so far have six letters - yippee and Christ.
Can you find a longer word? Make a comment or bring your word in on a piece of paper.
There's a prize for the longest word found!
Practise using the games to help you learn the spelling and the definition of the word.
This week in our phonics and spelling session, we have been investigating the homophones 'to, too and two' and identifying when to use which one.
We have also investigated other homophones and explained the meaning of each word. Here a few games to help you to practise this skill:
To earn a merit, choose 5 different homophones and write a sentence to show you understand the difference between the words.
