8 En2 – Mr Dettman – Spellings!

Dear Year 8, for Thursday please complete on the blog, or neatly, on paper, come in having written down:

– 3 words you like (plus a short explanation of why you like using them.)

– 3 words that you struggle with spelling (Discuss what is it that you find hard about spelling these words.)

– 3 new words (Use a dictionary or thesaurus to find them, or ask your parents for some ideas!)

– Look up the term: ‘homophone‘.  Give me an example of a homophone in the English language with which you struggle.


  1. Come up with a spelling rule for helping to spell your hard-to-spell words.
  2. What’s the longest word in the English language, to spell.  Can you learn it for next lesson – I bet a Positive that you can’t!
