Rooted in faith, we reach for the stars.

SPAG and phonics

The spelling pattern for this week is as follows:

-y changed to -i before adding -es/-er/-est but not before -ing as this would result in ii

The only ordinary words with ii are skiing and taxiing



Example of above: copy - change the -y to -i    - copi+er   =  copier


The common exception words that we are focusing on are: again and whole

We recommend that you put the spelling words into a sentence as this helps the children to put the word into context.  This is particularly important for our EAL children.
