Next week, we’ll be learning about the spelling rule:

double up for a short vowel sound

An example of this is in the word difficult. The ‘i’ is a short sound if you read it aloud, therefore the following consonant ‘f’ needs to be doubled up. Another example is trapped.

To help consolidate this learning, we’d like you to practise spelling these words at home.

Yellow group

appear, different, difficult, possible, trapped, happening, opposite, arrive

Blue group

shop- shopped – shopping

hop – hopped- hopping

plod – plodded – plodding

trap – trapped -trapping

arrive, different


We’ll test ourselves on Friday 12 November to see how we’ve got on.
