Spellings – Independent choice

Choose 10 spellings that you have found or still find tricky and write a sentence containing each of them. Try to include some of the English skills we have learnt this half term (adjectives, fronted adverbials, possessive apostrophes) to improve your sentences.


Our next topic will be all about Rocks and Fossils. The big question we are asking is, “Is the Earth just one big piece of rock?” Research either something about rocks or fossils and be ready to share when our new topic begins. How you present your findings is up to you. It could be a booklet, a poster, a piece of writing; you decide. Good luck.
