Split E

This week Primary 4 are learning about “split e”. Adults may know this spelling rule as “magic e” or “silent e”. Split e is when the letter “e” sits at the end of the word, it is usually silent and the split e tells the first vowel or the preceding vowel to say its name or long sound. The split e vowels are as follows: a_e, i_e, o_e and u_e. This week we are focusing on identifying, reading and writing a_e words and have enjoyed reading nonsense alien words to help us learn to read these confidently.


For homework this week please watch these videos and practice reading and writing words with the a_e spellings.



Adults may also remember this very old video from when they were at school!



I have also added simple games to practice this onto Education City.


Have fun!
