Your Spelling Rule- plurals
- Most nouns add ‘-s’ in the plural
- Nouns ending in a hissing/buzzing/shushing sound add ‘-es’ because it makes it easier to say.
- Nouns ending in ‘-y’ change the ‘y’ to ‘I’ and add ‘-es’.
- Several nouns ending in ‘o’ add ‘-es’ (potato)

Times tables- TT Rockstars
In school next week you will be practising your 7 and 8 times tables. The main focus is on increasing your mental recall speed for these times tables facts. You can practise at home by logging on to TT Rockstars and earning coins for each times table fact you answer correctly.
You should ensure you are reading to an adult at home at least 4 times a week and record this in your home school diary. Remember, if you read four times each week, your name will be put into a lucky dip to win a prize. Also, 20 reads = one housepoint!
Home school diaries
Please make sure home school diaries are signed each week. Home school diaries should be in school each day as they are often used to share informal messages and test results will be recorded in them each week. In year five, we check and sign home school diaries each Friday.
