Spelling

Monday

This week we are revisiting words that end in shus sound made by either 'tious' or 'cious'. Begin with watching the video link below as a quick recap.

Below are the words we will use this week.

Monday continued

Can you identify the root word for the words ending in our suffix this week?

 

fictitious

malicious

vicious

cautious 

 

Sometimes a root word will give you a clue about which spelling to choose. For example:

Words ending in tion change to tious

Words ending in ce change to cious

 

Using the words four above, practise this rule using a strategy from class of your choice.

 

Tuesday - Thursday

Chunk the words from the list in to groups of 5 and practise using a strategy of your choice. This is entirely up to you as you know which ones work well for you. 

 

Friday

Ask someone at home to test on these words in a random order (have a quick practise before hand as revision). Make a note of any you don't get right so you can work on them again next week.
