I thought it would be useful to share the spelling words we are focusing on in class each week. We play a fun game called ‘Spelling Sparkle’, which I am sure your children could teach you. Although it works best with a lot of people, it can still be a fun way to practise spelling with the family. In class, we also look at each word and see if we can grow them, i.e ‘fun’ can be grown to be ‘funny’ for example and we also look to see if we can shrink the words, i.e ‘call’ could be shrunk to ‘all’.
We will be looking at the short ‘u’ sound next week with the following words:
Sun, fun, chug, bud, shut, hunt
