Hello everyone!

It has been another busy week of learning in P4W.

Revising three ways of adding the ‘ing’ suffix.

FANTASTIC- sound  walk  drop  leave  have think  swim  use  give  slip write steal  have think

SPECTACULAR- explain  drag  wrap  happen  expect  refuse  hope  fascinate change drag  know  manage forget  shock

Ideas for home learning: Use the root words to create a simple adding ‘ing’ game of your own or play this one to test your skills.

 Draw lines to create three columns. Write an adding’ ing’ rule at the top of each column.

Next, write the root words on small cards. Place them upside down. Each player takes it in turn to choose a card and place them in the correct rule column according to the rule for that word.

Extra Challenge- add more words to each column.
