Welcome toSt Nicholas Church of England Primary Academy

Group 1 Mrs MacRae's Spelling Group

The Spelling Zone

This week we are learning to add the suffix - y.

We can add -y to many route words to make adjectives (describing words). For some words we DOUBLE the final CONSONANT before adding -y. 

For example: 

Spot   Spott + y   Spotty       run   runn + y    runny 



The Vowels and Consonants Song
