* This Week *

 

You have been learning to spell using el and le.


el, le and al often sound the same at the end of a word and so knowing which ending you
need to spell a word correctly can be very tricky.

 

So, this week you are going be learning about and using the spelling rule for
words which end in
al 

 Most words that end with al are adjectives, although, there are some nouns too.

Before you begin your tasks watch this video and use the PowerPoint to help you
learn when to use each suffix and about some of the words that break the rules.
