Tuesday 2nd February 2021
Good Morning everyone.
I hope you are all happy and ready for another day of home leanring.
Let me know if you need anything.
9:00 - 9:30 - Phonics - double consonants
Look at the PowerPoint. Can you see the rule for adding vowel suffixes to words ending in VC? This is the double consonant rule. This rule is necessary to ensure the short vowel is maintained. Otherwise, hopping would turn into hoping!
Watch ‘The Suffix Song’ video. Can you remember the rules for adding suffixes at the end of the song? What is the rule for adding the endings ing, ed, er, est and y to words ending in ‘e’ with a consonant before it?
Have a look at the activity. Read the sentences. Add the ending to the root words, so that the sentences make sense.
