Spellings 13th September 2021

As mentioned in previous message there are no formal spelling tests anymore.

Adding -ing, -ed to root words


  1. If the final two letters are a single vowel followed by a single consonant, double the last consonant before adding -ed and -ing. e.g. root word – patpatting/ patted.
  2.  If the verb ends in the consonant letters, the endings -ed and -ing are simply added on.
  3. The y is changed to an I before adding -ed not not -ing e.g. varyvarying, varied
  4. The -e at the end of the root word is dropped before adding -ing and -ed. e.g. care – caring – cared.


Consonants = b, c, d, f, g, h, j, k, l , m , n , p, q, r, s, t, v, w, x, y, z
