(Answers are at the bottom of this page.)
Practise your spellings for this week.
There are 26 letters in our alphabet, but could we cope perfectly well with only 25?
Some letters are used for several different sounds, so getting rid of them would cause a lot of problems. However, a few letters are only used for sounds which could also be made with other letters - e.g. the q sound (as in queen) could be spelt cw or kw.
Today, I would like you to discuss with someone at home which letters are the least useful to us and decide on one which could be abolished.
Then, write persuasively to explain your decision. You will need to think about all the consequences of getting rid of your letter - what implications will there be for the spelling of our words. Explain clearly why you think the letter will not be missed.
Look at the lettering in the word LOVE below.
The letters are drawn as 3D blocks with shading and shadow to make the 3D effect more realistic.
Try doing this with your name.
The Youtube link underneath may help with the drawing of the letters.
