In class we have been looking at words that end in vowels other than ‘e’. Many are food and musical words, like samosa, mango, pasta, and viola, piano and vuvuzela. Complete your spelling sheet.
Choose ten words, and write them down in the singular and plural form (use a dictionary to help you check the correct plural spelling).
Put each word into an alliterative sentence, for example:
Pizzas are perfect for peckish children.
Samosas are scrummy for starving school kids.
