Please complete the following spelling activity to hand in on Thursday 27 September.

Word families

It’s important to start ‘really’ seeing words, noticing patterns and thinking about words that are linked by a letter pattern and meaning (but not the sound). Word families can help you with the spelling and meaning of words.

real: reality, unrealistic, realise, really

ped: pedestrian, expedition, pedicure, pedal

Can you make your own ‘word families’ for the following:

  • sign (from Latin to mark)
  • rupt (from Latin for broken)
  • medic
  • graph
  • tele
  • sub
