Considering our school for your child to start in September 2021? Unfortunately, we are unable to offer parent tours; please view this video for a flavour of our school.
This week your spellings are words that have the ‘igh’ sound spelled ‘y’ at the end of words. This is by far the most common spelling for this sound at the end of words. Make sure that you can read all of the words in your list and know the meanings of them before you start learning to spell them.
You also have two activities to complete which will help you learn your spellings. There is a complete the sentence activity as well as a wordsearch.
We would also like you to do some revision about when to use a possessive apostrophe and when you don’t need one because the word is plural.

Have a go at this game on Education City. It will help you understand when a possessive apostrophe is needed.
Once you are getting the hang of it, have a go at this 'Plural or Possessive?' activity.
