Spelling rule - adding the suffix -ous (words ending in 'y' become 'i' and words ending in 'our' become 'or')

Reading - Children should be bringing their reading books home daily. These are changed as soon as the children finish their book and have taken a quiz on Accelerated Reader in school. Children can write in their green reading records which will be checked weekly at school. You might like to add a book review to our class page on purplemash or upload a drawing/your favourite part of the book.

Have a look through the different ebook libraries. Most of us will click on age range, 7-9, all series and all levels. Pick a book of your choice and practice reading it to your grown up. If you think it is too easy, have a look at some of the 9-11 books.


The Read Write Inc Phonics books are good for practicing word reading if that is a target of yours. Laura's group might enjoy practicing these with a grown up and answering the questions at the back.
