L.O: To identify the spelling rule.


Look at this week’s words:

division, explosion, invasion, persuasion, erosion, collision, decision, conclusion

1. Say the words.

2. What do you notice about each word?

3. What sound is similar?

This week’s spelling rule is the ‘shun’ sound spelt ‘sion’.

Main Activity


For each of the eight spelling words.


1. Write each word showing the ‘shun’ sound in a different colour e.g. division  


2. Explain what the word means by using a dictionary or safe search - you could write a definition or draw a picture to show your understanding.


3. Use spelling shed to practise spelling ‘-sion’ words each day this week.
