This week’s spelling patterns are below if you’d like to work on these at home. We do a dictation activity using these words/patterns each Friday. Please feel free to add words of your own; it isn’t just about learning a “list” of words but understanding how words are built up and spelt.
Team Jewel: revising ir and moving on to ou and oy.
For example: fir, firm, girl; out, shout, pound; boy, toy
Team Gold: adding ing endings (where you don’t need to change the root word)
For example: waiting, sailing, playing, staying, feeling, sticking, shocking
Tricky words: small, follow, picture
Team Treasure: words with the ea spelling that makes an ‘e’ sound and a variety of words that use the ea spelling (challenge list)
Core list: head, read, bread, deaf, thread, weather, feather, heather, leather, earth
Challenge list: overhead, breakfast, heave, dreaming, threading, leave, meat, screamed, reached, weak
Tricky words: very, every
