Hello,

Here are the spellings for this week, We are continuing to add the suffix -er or -est to root words and using the relevant spelling rule linked to the root word. This week if the root word has a vowel before the consonant then we must double the consonant before adding -er or -est.  You will also see there are two groups of common exception words. The children have also been placed into relevant groups for the learning of common exception words and they know which group they are in.
