Today you have your spelling test on words using the prefix ‘re’ that you were given last week. There is a video that you can play and do your spellings to. If it is going too fast, feel free to pause between each one. If the video doesn’t work you could get a family member to test you.
This week’s spelling will have the prefix of 'ir'. You have the choice of focusing on just the first 5 which is using the diagraph ‘ir’ (1star) or can challenge yourself to learn all 10. I have made a PowerPoint with some methods on how to practise these spellings.
