Week commencing: 09th February 2018
This week we will be focusing on the spelling rule to double the final consonant before adding ing.
The children will be given 5 of these words to practice at home using the rule. We will test the children on words using the rule + topic words.
Rule: Double the consonant to a root word ending in a vowel + consonant – eg i (vowel) p (consonant) and add ing.
slip +p +ing = slipping
swim + m +ing = swimming
chat + t +ing = chatting
hop + p + ing = hopping
Shop + p +ing
