Spellings to be tested on 12.12.2016

| 0 comments

Here are the spellings which will be tested on Monday 12.12.2016. I have recently become aware that the children didn’t get their spellings on Monday 5.12.2016 and for that I apologise, I would however like the children to have a go at learning these spellings over the weekend. I understand that lots of you are busy so there is no pressure, just try your best 🙂

Date set: 5.12.2016 ough is one of the trickiest spellings in English – it can be used to spell a number of different sounds.

 

Can you sort these words according to the sound that the ough makes and then add more to your sorted lists?

Date to be tested: 12.12.2016
LO: Words containing the letter-string ough.
ought
thought
through
rough
tough
cough
though
dough
borough
plough
In order to ensure that your child understands and can apply the spelling rule please encourage them to find other examples where the rule is used in their reading books/ dictionaries and practise these.

 

Have a great weekend!

Miss Tracey
