5F have been investigating the various ways of spelling the ‘shun’ sound. We have focused on the following suffix endings: -tion, -sion, -ssion and -cian. We also noticed that the word Egyptian was spelt tian.

We are moving on to another pattern next week but we could still do with practising the ‘shun’ sound a little more.

The website www.spellzone.com has lists of words for each suffix ending and games that can be played.

Next week we are investigating the suffixes: -le, -el, -al and -ol
