Years 3/4 and 5/6 spellings need to be learnt before SATS examinations which commence on Monday 10th May 2021

 Spellings Mat Y3 and Y4

 Spellings Mat Y5 and Y6

 As well as the spellings above, your children need to learn certain spelling patterns.  See pages 59-63, 66-70 of the English National Curriculum document

 Spelling Rules

 All rules  need to be learned and understood, with example words spelt correctly: cious or tious endings (you use ‘tious’ if the word can end in ‘tion’ e.g. ambitious – ambition vicious – no ‘tion’ related word). e.g. vicious, precious, delicious, conscious, malicious, ambitious, cautious, infectious, nutritious, etc. cial or tial endings (you usually use cial after a vowel e.g. official and tial after a consonant e.g. essential - but there are exceptions). e.g. official, special, artificial, social, facial, partial, confidential, essential, torrential – exceptions include palatial and initial; financial and commercial (but finance and commerce end in ‘ce’ so you keep the ‘c’). ant/ancy/ance endings and ent/ency/ence endings (mostly these words just need to be learnt, but there are some clues.

For example, if there is an ‘ation’ related word, use the ‘a’ option – e.g. observant is with an ‘a’ because of observation). e.g. observant, tolerant, hesitant, substance, reluctant, innocent, decent, frequent, consistent, etc.

 ible and able endings (‘able’ is used for words with a real root word, e.g. believable and ‘ible’ is used for words with no real root word, e.g. horrible - there is no such word as ‘horr’). e.g. believable, adorable, applicable, changeable, noticeable, incredible, horrible, legible, invincible - forcible is an exception. Doubling or not doubling the ‘r’ in words with ‘fer’ in them (this comes down to stressing or not stressing the syllable. ‘Prefer’ becomes ‘preferring’ because you stress the ‘fer’ - You do not double it when it is not stressed here, like in ‘referee’). e.g. transferred, preferring, referred, inferred, referee, inference, transference, etc.

Use of the hyphen (a hyphen must be used to avoid two vowels which make separate sounds coming together, e.g. re-entry, co-own). e.g. co-ordinate, co-operate, re-enter, co-own, etc. ie or ei (you use ‘i before e except after c’ most of the time, e.g. ‘believe’ but there are important exceptions e.g. ‘ceiling, deceive’). e.g. the exceptions to ‘i before e except after c’ include ceiling, deceive, receive, perceive, conceive, etc. Words using the letter string ough (an easy one – just learn ‘thorough, nought, thought, although, plough’ etc!) e.g. thorough, nought, bought, although, plough, dough, brought, fought, etc.

Words with silent letters (focus on words like ‘island, knelt, wrestle, thistle, doubt, solemn, lamb’ etc) e.g. island, knelt, wrestle, thistle, doubt, solemn, lamb, knight, knowledge, knife, subtle, wreath, etc. Homophones (this is a very important rule. Many of our words sound the same or similar but are different, e.g. ‘advice/advise, practice/practise, device/devise, license/licence, heard/herd, morning/mourning, draw/drawer’ - you need to learn as many as possible!)

Common Homophones 

These appear VERY often in the tests, and you must learn them well enough to know the difference when you hear them in a sentence, e.g. you must know which to write down if you hear, “I put my pencil case in the drawer,” or “I used my pencil case to draw a picture.” there/their/they’re led/lead which/witch here/hear whole/hole draw/drawer prayer/pray/prey scent/cent/sent your/you’re compliment/complement seller/cellar aloud/allowed bury/berry desert/dessert license/licence morning/mourning piece/peace seen/scene thrown/throne threw/through stationary/stationery whose/who’s steel/steal profit/prophet There are lots more of these! Please try to look out for and learn them!
