Geraldine the Giraffe learns /-le/

This is a great place to practise some of your spelling skills: 


Look at the word. How many parts does it have? Are there any tricky parts? Can you see any spelling patterns that you know?

Say the word. Break it down into syllables. How many parts are there to this word? What sounds can you hear? 

Cover up the word so that you can't see it. Think about the word in your mind. Picture it.


Write the word in your busy book. Remember how the word looks and sounds.


Uncover the word and check if you wrote it correctly. Tick letters you got correct and fix the ones you didn't.

The Naughty Pixies

It was the middle of the night and the empty farmyard was still.  The cattle were sleeping in the barn and the hens were silent.  Suddenly, the handle of the barn door turned and the sound of a giggle followed by a chuckle made the cows stir.  Two little pixies carrying a candle entered the barn.  They began to tickle the cows behind their ears to wake them up. The bravest pixie put a saddle on the biggest cow and rode it around the barn. Meanwhile a dribble of wax slid down the candle and made a puddle on the barn floor.  It was hard and shiny and the moonlight made it dazzle the pixies’ eyes. They left the cows and started to skate on the puddle of wax. The smallest pixie tried to juggle eggs whilst skating, but began to wobble, and fell over with a crash!  In the morning the farmer could not believe the mess in the barn, so he went home, put the kettle on, and made himself a cup of tea.  What a pity that cows can’t talk!!!
