Spellings

This week, we are revising words ending with -able and -ible.

-ible and -able are suffixes which can be added to the end of a verb to create an adjective. 

This rule can help you decide the correct spelling. It works most (but not all!) of the time. Remember, if you are not sure about a word, it is probably best to use a dictionary. Here is the rule:

  • If you remove -able from a word, you are left with a complete word (renewable, renew).
  • If you remove -ible from a word, you are not left with a complete word (sensible, sens). But note that accessible, contemptible, digestible, flexible and suggestible are among the exceptions to this rule.

For your writing task this week, do some research about your secondary school and write an information text. You could include information about the uniform, who the headteacher is, whether there is a house system, the history of the the school, the location of the school, the facilities and buildings on site etc.

You could even use illustrations or diagrams to support your writing.

You could challenge yourself to include:

  • Passive voice - Lessons are led by the qualified teacher.
  • Extend ideas with subordinate clauses - Although children are based in a classroom to learn, their learning could be taken outside where they take part in physical activities.
  • Include brackets for parenthesis - The outdoor learning area area (with a fire pit and pond) allows for more exploratory learning
