Spellings: Rule 24: able/ible and ably/iby suffixes

Use the powerpoint below to revise when to use the suffixes able/ible and ably/ibly.’ Use examples from the last slide to practice spelling the words accurately, choosing the correct suffix. Don’t do all of them at once- 10 a day is plenty.

Reading:

For today's reading, please could you complete the following quiz. Make sure you do this on your own and without the help from an adult. If you're not sure of an answer, move on to the next question.

English:

First of all, watch the following 'Just So' story.

Today you are going to plan a 'Just So’ story like the ones you watched on Monday and just now. Start by thinking about what characteristics different animals have. Some examples are the giraffe’s long neck, the camel’s hump or a zebra’s stripes. Then think about where your story will be set. How will your animal get its features? Does your animal go on a journey like the elephant child or is it tricked like the tiger? Once you have decided on these details use the storyboard below to plan your story.
