In class we have been looking at different spelling rules.  The rule we looked at this week was adding a suffix beginning with a vowel to a word ending in ‘fer’.  The rule was to decide whether to double the ‘r’ before adding the suffix.

We practised the rule and then set ourselves a challenge.  We were given a word and then had one minute to see how many times we could spell the word, applying the spelling rule correctly. I think the highest score was 14 times but we hope to get better at this over the coming weeks.
