Practise your spellings one last time before you get a someone in your house to read them to you to test you. Remember NO CHEATING!


I can’t wait to find out if we have any 10/10’s! Whatever your score, you can email me to tell me. I’d love to know! I will upload this week's spellings tomorrow. Your next test will be Monday 1st June.

Also attached is an activity about irregular plural nouns. These are the nouns that you can't just add an 's' to make them plural.


For example:


Regular plural nouns:     table   / tables        house / houses        dog / dogs


Irregular plural nouns:    child / children        person / people       mouse / mice
