Our last week before the Easter Holidays - everyone has worked so hard on learning their spellings and we have seen some great success with end of term scores. After Easter we are likely to have two and a half groups to help make sure all children have appropriate spellings aligned with their abilities and progress - will of course clarify this.
For this weeks spellings - keep making sure you know the meanings and can use the words in context.
Group 1) Continuing adverbs - ly (exceptions to the rules)
Group 2) ie or ei?
Any problems please use the class email address or let us know through the home-communication books.

Group 1 - continuing the ly spelling theme, words ending in e (adverbs)
Group 2 - root words - velop, cept, struct

Group 1 - continuing with adverbs
Group 2 - using prefix, suffix - focus on ___graph___
