Spelling Yr 5/6

This week the spelling rule for Miss Stell's set is:

The letter 'y' that sounds like 'i' in words such as:

myth

gym

physics

Egypt

 

The current spelling rule for Mr Moon's and Mr Ridd's set is:

Words ending –able or –ible (-ibly/-ably)

For example:

possibly, incredibly, comfortable, capable, possible, terrible, horrible, workable

As a general rule, words that are complete words already add 'able': comfort --> comfortable

whereas words that are incomplete add 'ible' : poss ---> possible
