This week's spellings will focus on adding the suffix -ed to verbs and the suffix -ing to verbs.
This has been covered in our work in class throughout the year.
Rules for adding -ed
1) Usually just add -ed
walked talked wanted cooked frowned
2) Double the consonant after a short vowel sound
hopped skipped tripped jogged
3) Verbs ending in -e, just add -d
smiled danced pranced
walking talking laughing sleeping eating
We will assess this by looking at the children's independent writing to see if they can apply these rules in their work.
We will also continue to test the words on the sheet handed out 17.6.16. Please ask if you'd like another copy!
Please go through the sheet and practise the words your child finds tricky to spell.
