We are learning when to use hyphens when a prefix ends in the same letter the root word starts with e.g re-enter, co-operate, co-ordinate.
Rare Corresponding Graphemes Phonemes (CGPs) is our focus e.g. Bruise, yacht, guarantee, vehicle and immediately.
We are learning about plurals and we have discussed the different rules.
We are focusing on Homophones. These are words which sounds the same but have different meaning and are spelt differently. For example, isle/aisle, aloud/allowed, affect/effect, heard/herd, past/passed.
We are learning words ending in -able and -ible. For example horrible, terrible, possible, edible, reversible, invincible, legible, adorable, forgivable, disposable, enjoyable, valuable, breakable, identifiable.
We are now focussing on words with silent letters. For example: doubt, solemn, knickers, whistle, island, thistle, numb, debt, lamb, knight, Autumn and isle.
Our current spelling pattern is words with 'ough'. For example:
thought, rough, cough, bought, drought, tough, although,
dough, plough, sought, thorough and brought.
