Weekly spelling challenge!

Our focus for the spelling lessons this week has been alternative pronunciations.

Here are the alternative pronunciations that we have focused on this week:


er in 'stern' or er in 'letter'


ch in 'chip' or ch (c) in 'Christmas'


a in 'cat' or a (ai) in 'acorn'

Your challenge: How many words can you think of for 'er', 'ch' and 'a'? Write them down. You may want to record the words as shown below to show the different pronunciations:


If you have a go at this challenge, please ask your adult to send a photo of your work to or they can send us a message/photo on Class Dojo. We would love to see your work!
