Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar
Below are our high frequency spelling words that we will be practising throughout the year. You can practise these at home using some of our fun activities.
In term 4 we will also be continuing to look at words that have the /shun/ sound at the end of the word but are spelt -sion, -ssion, -tion and -cian.
