EDDIE SAYS
Great to see you having a go. Although it sounds like this word should be spelt 'sum', the correct spelling is actually 'some'. The best way to try and remember tricky words is to keep practising writing it out. Try to remember what it looks like. Sometimes we can tell a word is spelt correctly just by looking at it.
